The Afterhouse is a story that captures your attention from the very start. The thrill, camaraderie and fear of the old time whalers resonates in the author and narrators words, pulling you into the story and breaking your heart for both the men and the whales. The story then shifts to modern times where we find an emotionally scarred woman, Remy, and her young daughter, Olivia, moving into a cottage inhabited by Eli, the whaler Captains ghost. This story is mainly a unique type of love story, a tale of soul mates finding one another, but it also has humour, intrigue, suspense, ghosts and spirituality, all combined into one captivating tale. I really enjoyed the unusual mix of history, modern day and paranormal that the author incorporated into this well written story. The characters are appealing and I particularly liked the interaction between the Captain and Olivia, it was amusing and refreshing. The plot is complex, with more than one story going on at the same time, but it is still easy to follow, with enough twists and mystery to keep you turning the pages. The narrator did an excellent job of imparting emotion and personality into the characters, his accents were believable and he brought the characters to life. It is a beautiful, somewhat sad and yet at the same time joyful story that is well worth listening to. I received this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review

This novella is an interesting ghost story that switches from past to present, telling two stories in one.
The narrator did a lovely job bringing the characters to life.
The After House would be best enjoyed on a rainy afternoon.
