“You’re going to feel uncomfortable in your new world for a bit. But I hope you feel a bit exhilarated too. Live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle. Just live well. Just live. Love, Will.”

How do you move on after losing the person you loved? How do you build a life worth living?

Louisa Clark is no longer just an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. After the transformative six months spent with Will Traynor, she is struggling without him. When an extraordinary accident forces Lou to return home to her family, she can’t help but feel she’s right back where she started.

Her body heals, but Lou herself knows that she needs to be kick-started back to life. Which is how she ends up in a church basement with the members of the Moving On support group, who share insights, laughter, frustrations, and terrible cookies. They will also lead her to the strong, capable Sam Fielding—the paramedic, whose business is life and death, and the one man who might be able to understand her. Then a figure from Will’s past appears and hijacks all her plans, propelling her into a very different future…

For Lou Clark, life after Will Traynor means learning to fall in love again, with all the risks that brings. But here Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await.

My Review- 5 Stars

The sequel to Me before you. 

Questions. There the things that are on Louisa Clark mind until one night she is on the roof when she hears a voice. What she doesn’t know she’ll meet two very important people that night.

When i saw this on a stand outside Waterstones i just had to pick it up, i loved this book for me all my unanswered questions were answered. What happened to the Traynor family? How did Louisa parents react? What did Louisa do after leaving Will? Did she manage to come to terms with what happened all those months ago? and those are just a few that were on me mind.

Louisa Clark development through this book was perfect she is lost at the beginning confused at how she worked at a airport, why her flat doesn’t feel like home. Friendships are made when she joins the Moving On Circle here we’ll learn about other peoples story’s. Slowly Lou will learn to love again, to be happy again.

Lily was defiantly what Louisa needed someone to look after to worry about her problems then her own. We also meet Sam plays a big part in Louisa moving on he has also lost someone close so he understands how Lou is feeling one thing leads to another.

This books isn’t just about Louisa moving on you have her parents arguing, her sister Treena struggling to find her feet, we have Lily finding out about her family and we have her move on from a mistake she made. Finally we have the Traynors who have had to come to terms to terms with many things.

The writing is amazing it just flows, the pace isn’t to slow or fast everything about this book is just perfect i can’t fault it. Overall i highly recommend you pick it up if you haven’t already your eyes will fill with tears, its not a dark read there are a lot moments where you’ll find yourself smiling along i defiantly did.

Thank you for reading,
