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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
After You is a very different book than its prequel, Me Before You. We cried our eyes out in the first installment, while this time around we felt a sense of easy comfort and elation on reuniting with the charming, no-nonsense Lou Clark, whose world was upended by her former employer, Will Traynor. After You will resonate most with fans of the prequel, but anyone can delight in Moyes’ disarmingly self-deprecating heroine—and celebrate the idea that sometimes good people do get their just desserts.

I love this book. The beginning was quite depressing, but reading it makes you realize the struggle of recovering from a loss and life afterwards; which you don’t see until you experience it or read it and this book shows those raw emotions taking over Louisa’s life. There are twists, really happy moments, and heart wrenching cries. But such a good book. I loved it and would read it over and over again.
An understandably depressing novel
Jojo Moyes has once again captured us with her wonderful writing. Unfortunately,I was highly disappointed with a few factors in this novel. Of course, Louisa Clark is still suffering from the devastating blow from the death of Will Trainor. Louisa's life is boring and bland. She does nothing more than work at a bar at an airport. I felt, after beginning the novel, that any hope you feel at the ending of Me Before You is crushed, and Louisa is utterly upset. It was much too depressing for my taste, especially considering the hopeful ending in the previous novel.
Now, the ending of this novel wasn't what I had been dreaming of either. I won't spoil anything, but it was rather disappointing.
Despite all my negative comments, I did enjoy the novel. There were some fantastic quotes that I absolutely loved ♥♥♥! So many well written sentences!
Thank you for reading my review, and I hope it has been helpful!
A total waste of time. I found it to be a complete mockery of Me Before You.
