When Lou Clark loses her job in the Battered Bun Tea Shop, the only job she’s ever known, she feels like her life is over. As well as that she is questioning the so called love she has for her long term boyfriend. What she doesn’t know is that it’s just about to begin.
Will Traynor had everything to live for. He’s handsome, successful and professional, living a life of luxury in his plush London apartment with his gorgeous girlfriend. One freak accident changed all this forever.
Paralysed from the neck down Will relies on his carers to do almost everything for him. Things that most people take for granted. He has given up on life as he once knew it and also on life as he now knows it. Angry and in constant anguish, he sees no other way but to end it at a European Clinic.
Can Lou change his mind? Is their feelings for each other and her determination enough to make him start living his life again! Is it enough to make Will change his mind?
This is the story of two people. Lost to themselves, who come together in very sad circumstances and how they may well be just the best thing that has ever happened to each other.
I cannot express how much I loved this book. It is poignant and beautifully written with loveable characters. Tragic and hope fulfilling in equal measure. The story flows like fluid and has you hooked on every word. Even through the tears and emotion I found myself unable to put it down.
I don’t want to give too much away but the ending was unexpected. It’s so well written for being such a controversial issue. Jojo Moyes addressed this amazing novel with empathy and compassion. My only regret is that I didn’t read this sooner. Simply stunning in every way.
