After You Fell by J.S. Lark

After You Fell


Creepy, disturbing and genuinely thrilling, this is one page-turner you won’t be able to forget!

As one life ends
Louise’s Lovett’s death was a tragedy.  But questions still swirl about exactly what happened to Louise that day.  Did she fall…or was she pushed?

A new life starts
Helen Matthews’ donor heart saves her life.  But as her new heart beats inside her, Helen feels the pull of its previous owner–despite what everyone is telling her, Helen is certain she has one final message to pass on.

And a dark obsession begins
As the lives of Helen and Louise become ever more entangled, Helen’s obsession gets increasingly out of control.  And the fragile new life she has built begins to fall apart…


This chilling novel with a twisted plot and startling end has blown me away!  I was holding my breath throughout while Helen’s life kept getting more and more entangled and complex.

The need for love in humans is a terrible thing. It destroys people. It has tried to destroy me lots of times. I need others. I need to belong. I need to be wanted. I need to be needed.

Helen Matthews had suffered many years waiting for a heart and when she finally receives one she is determined to thank the donor’s family in an unorthodox way. She finds a tortured husband and three young children who have lost their wife and mother to a possible suicide, but Helen’s heart donor is telling her differently.

This is a very unexpected and outstanding tale of loneliness, obsession, and dark thoughts. All told in Helen’s voice, the author cleverly weaves hopes and doubts into the story to make the reader keep second-guessing themselves on what is actually happening.  

Ms. Lark does a remarkable job examining serious topics such as anorexia, bipolar disorder, and mental illness, and how they not only affect the afflicted but how they affect the families as well.

If you enjoy a surprising psychological thriller, please give this one a try.

Thank you to Ms. Lark for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
