Hereafter: A Story of Love and Time Travel
by Samuel Peralta
Cpl. Caitlyn McAdams returns home from war, back to her family and the life she knew – but she doesn’t return whole. How can she forget the man she left behind – a man she’d met only once before – casualty of a roadside bomb, dying in front of her? And then, one day, he comes back.
From award-winning author Samuel Peralta comes Hereafter, a spellbinding short story of love and time travel, of distance and longing, of separation and faith.
Hereafter is a story that crosses the traditional boundaries of science fiction, romance, and literary fiction, to ask whether – bounded by space and time – love is truly enough.
As evocative as The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and Somewhere in Time by Richard Matheson, Hereafter is a remarkable tale about joy, sorrow, life and the preciousness of time.
