Springing from the London School explosion in rural New London, Texas, Aftermath begins more than forty years later, when the narrator recalls the dreadful day she lost her mother and many of her schoolmates. As she weighs both the joys and the sorrows of the life, she eventually comes to terms with the reality that the tragedy can never be overcome, but it can, in significant ways, be redeemed.
