I love this book and the incredible journey we take with Andrea through her most challenging, yet rewarding experiences.

I felt every moment with her, and it was beautiful!"   ~ J. Morris

In Life After This, Cadelli combines a refreshing mix of narrative and verse to share large, often difficult, moments in her life. The themes of self-acceptance, overwhelming grief, and the personal growth that comes with accepting life's lessons are made all-the-more impactful by her beautifully-delivered verse.

~ Dimmy Linklater

Gargoyles dress like everyday people and hangout in everyday places.  The powerful themes in this book resonate no matter your life experience, and Andrea's personal stories inspire shared empathy as part of our collective human experience."     ~ Hanburg

Life After This, by Andrea Cadelli, is a book bursting from its genre.  It is indeed a self-help book geared towards those who are struggling with a loss or facing challenging life changes and choices.  But it is so much more than that.  It is simultaneously a memoir, a life success planner, a book of southern humor, and a compilation of unforgettable poetry performances.  Cadelli takes the reader through her personal history, with all its triumphs and tragedies, in simple and strong prose.  In each chapter, Cadelli questions and examines what makes up true happiness and how others have a hand in shaping who we become .  She shies away from nothing as she reveals some of her most harrowing and difficult life experiences, while, at the same time, showing a resolve to bounce back and look at all the positives in life.  If you have ever needed encouragement, or if you've ever experienced tragedy, or if you like southern humor mixed with exciting poetry, or if you just like a good read from a natural story-teller, then do yourself a favor and read Life After This."   ~Amy Clark

This book was not what I expected. It was so much more! Andrea's personal stories and poetry touched my heart and inspired me in ways I couldn't have imagined. I love her plan for creating a breakthrough. This is a must read book for anyone who's ever been stuck. I can't wait wait to share it with my friends and family.    ~James F. Boley

Andrea Cadelli's book 'Life After This' is part memoir, part manifesto, and part mindfulness exercise. Through her beautiful faith and powerful spirit Andrea shows us not only how to survive this sometimes cruel game of life, but how to thrive and love beyond the pain."    ~ Carrie Cartier

Andrea's stories reveal heartbreaking modern day losses of dear loved ones and personal trauma. More grief than anyone should have to experience at such a young age. Her poems let the reader listen/experience the emotional pain and consequent healing. The fact that she has survived all this and that she strives to assist others who are grieving and hurting is a testament to her enduring love, strength and faith."      ~ Joanne Mills

Andrea’s stories will strike a chord with anyone who has gone through a journey of grief and loss to hope, forgiveness and happiness. This book shows that though our journey's may be different, our end results can be the same when we discover and live by our true spirit."     ~ Christie Booker
