Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener:

Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray - well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern here, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen. I hope you enjoy After the Night.

Sincerely,
Linda Howard

Great Linda Howard book

Any additional comments?

Extremely engaging book. Faith is a likable character. She grew up hard with a "trashy" family in a small town. When Faith was 14 she and her family were run out of town. Gray, a local very young rich man, was instrumental in having the family thrown out. Faith ends up in a foster home and gets a scholarship to college. She does very well running her own business. Years later she goes back to the small town with the intent of staying this time. Gray still does not want her in town and influences all the locals to shun her - they won't even sell her groceries or gas. However, Gray and Faith are strongly attracted to one another. Faith believes Gray's father (who supposed ran away with her mother and left his family for good) was murdered rather than running away. She wanted to find out what really happened to him. Gray just wants her to leave town because he thinks her presence upsets his mother and sister. But he doesn't want her to go too far away because he wants to have an affair with her. Faith will never to that because of the embarrassment she suffered from her trashy mother and sister.

I am sorry to say that I never warmed up to Gray. He was cruel to Faith and he was always grabbing and manhandling her. In my opinion he never made up for his meanness to Faith. The reader was great and the abridged version was done quite well. I had read the book years ago and can truly say that the abridged audio version was just as good if not better. The unabridged book went on a little long telling the story - the abridged version was a better length and the reader was excellent.

Any additional comments?

The antagonist Gray was a sex-addicted bully, constantly threatening Faith, pushing her around, threatening to throw her out of the town, burn down her family's home after throwing them out on the street, making the town afraid to befriend her, and coercing her into sex. No one could have romantic thoughts about someone who had destroyed thier life that way. The writing was juvenile. Every thought (usually about how sexy Gray and Faith were) and plot point was repeated at length at least three times in varying ways. Every unnecessary movent and sight, was also recorded in the most boring way, It was like listening to a 1st grade teacher reading a really bad story.
