As a music lover myself, I was immediately drawn to the premise of The Beauty That Remains by Ashley Woodfolk. By the time I had finished it, I was already ready to dive into the story all over again.
Autumn, Shay, and Logan are three beautifully diverse and nuanced characters who will draw you into their shattered and shredded worlds of grief and when you finally emerge, you will feel soft and warm in a way that you never imagined a story about love and loss could leave you. The best part about it all is that I can imagine living next door to every single one of them.

Music brought Autumn, Shay, and Logan together. Death wants to tear them apart.
Autumn always knew exactly who she was—a talented artist and a loyal friend. Shay was defined by two things: her bond with her twin sister, Sasha, and her love of music. And Logan always turned to writing love songs when his love life was a little less than perfect. But when tragedy strikes each of them, somehow music is no longer enough…
