Elegy by Tara Hudson

A stranded spirit, and a love story that crosses the divide between the living and the dead...Despite everything she's lost in the last few months, Amelia's new half-life feels something like a victory. That is, until the demons of High Bridge make their ultimate move: rising from Hell and killing Wilburton's residents, one by one, to get to Amelia. When the death toll reaches too close to home, Amelia must make a horrible choice. Does she rely on the help of Joshua and his friends, or does she sacrifice herself...for the final time?


Praise for 'Hereafter': A tender and poignant love story with a ghostly twist. Becca Fitzpatrick, bestselling author of Hush, Hush Twisting together chilling mystery and sweet romance, Hereafter leaves the possibilities of a world unseen lingering in your mind and your heart long after you've turned the final page. Andrea Cremer, author of Nightshade

About the Author

Tara Hudson's fascination with ghosts goes back to childhood days spent with her grandmother, who would take her out to a strange cemetery guarded by rusted iron gates and tucked into the mountains of south-eastern Oklahoma. Only later did she learn that this place was her family's graveyard. Ever since, she's continued to visit cemeteries - with her two closest girl friends. After a particularly eerie visit, she began writing a story to entertain them, imagining a ghost girl, Amelia, and the living boy who can truly see her. It became 'Hereafter', the haunting story of loss and first love.
