Review by: Dark Road Publishing on March 29, 2011 : (no rating)
A beautifully "drawn" story in which a woman contemplates the afterlife. Ms. Reed demonstrates a wonderful ability to "paint" with words. After is sad, sweet, endearing and hopeful, all in one. Very nicely crafted.
(reviewed long after purchase)

Review by: White Sun Press on Feb. 07, 2011 :
A sweet, well-written pondering around death from the perspective of an artist and free spirit.
