    This book made me laugh so much I had to stop and explain why I was laughing. I am not much of a reader but this book kept me reading.

    I loved it!

    Okay, this book probably isn't what most people would except after looking at the cover, which is a ditzy chiclit. And while that may upset some people, it totally excited me! Being Christian, I found myself being able to relate in many ways to emily, and not just because we have the same name. I just couldn't put it down, it is such a feel good book, funny, exciting, inspiring, and I LOVED it! I would recommend this to any girl who is looking for a sweet book and a funny character to wish was real.

    We need more books like this!

    I picked up this book thinking: I could use an air-headed book about starting out in the work world. What I got was much more!!! I am so pleased that these women were able to write a book about what it means to be a Christian in the real world -- all the pressures and difficulties trying to figure out where the balance lies. It's not Dickens, but it's wonderful for it's genre. Us single Christian working-girls could use a lot more books like this on the market.

    I cannot understand how anyone could not fall in love with Emily our sharp witted and 'quirky' heroine from the first. I loved the way she 'lived' and 'showed' her morals and Christianity by being who she was and not a phoney in any way. She comes up against some tough situations for anyone to face and in the end she ties her life together as an extreme growth in character and morals lead her to make some super decisions and life changes. I loved this book and could not put it down!!1 I highly recommend it to everyone. Christian and non alike! I read it in two and a half days! So? Keep your calendar open!

    Intriguing contemporary tale

    Her Uncle Matthew obtains Emily Hinton a job as assistant to a long time friend Bennett, a publisher at Morrow and Sons, a highly regarded Manhattan publishing firm. Though her parents are concerned that their daughter is moving to the capital of glitz, an excited Emily relocates from Jenks, California (near San Diego)............... In New York, Emily tussles with the looser lifestyle as emulated by her roommate, her boss and her peers at the company. She finds some solace when she works at her Uncle¿s soup kitchen, but notices how his partner Josie loves him though Matthew is unaware of her feelings. Emily struggles between what she believes is right and the hedonistic fun of her new friends and city until she must take a moral stand on a book¿s content knowing it will cost her a job she treasures if she doe. Will Emily do what she believes is the right thing or will she remain silent as a lamb?.................... EMILY AFTER EVER is an intriguing contemporary tale starring a delightful protagonist struggling with the materialistic and often cynical assault on her spiritual beliefs. Emily is a terrific character who originally goes along to belong, but soon has doubts as she is uncomfortable with not being herself. Though her final stand turns too easily as black and white in spite of a revelation about the married Bennett and his ¿girlfriend¿ readers will admire Emily¿s courage to adhering to her beliefs rather than pretending all is well............
