Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, discover the love story that captured over 20 million hearts in Me Before You, After You, and Still Me.

“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.

    Not as good/memorable for me as Me Before You was but still a good read if you enjoyed the first one.

    At first, it was great. However the story line is a little bit hard to believe. My main issue was with Lou, Sam, Lily, Donna, and the bad guy. Me Before You was such a wonderful touching story. Nothing cheesy. However, the other two books after it, are more like horrible cheesy lifetime movies. I was really into Me Before You. The other two, I could have lived without. I would have much rather had another Me Before You but from Will’s perspective. I’d love to know his thoughts and feelings about his condition as well as his feelings for Lou.
  • Loved it!!!

    The title I gave it when I purchased it was because it’s Louisa’s story, but it’s under a different light. It's a great read that does justice to every penny spent and every moment spent reading and I have no words to express how interesting it was to see what happens after book 1. The way it begins, made me talk to myself. I was like: omg, look how it starts! I was surprised and I got sad and happy and experienced a wide range of emotions reading it. Can’t wait for book 3.

    The first book was amazing. This has so many twists and turns, it makes it very messy and tries to surprise readers at every turn. Definitely not what I expected.

    I love this authors books. She keeps the characters real, like you're reading about your best friends. She makes you fall in love with each character and each story within the first couple of chapters.

    The first book was terrible I'm not even sure why i picked up the second audio book at the library. 100% satisfied I didn't waste money on either of them.

    A nice story. Not as great as the first one, as always. But over all ok. Will patiently wait for the third one.
