*** THE FEEL-GOOD NOVEL OF THE SUMMER AND A RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB 2018 SELECTION ***
'Wow. Just wow. If you liked Me Before You, you'll love You Me Everything'Sunday Times bestseller Clare Mackintosh
Set in the French countryside over one hot summer, You Me Everything is a tender novel about finding joy and love even in the most unexpected places.
Jess and her ten-year-old son William set off to spend the summer at Château de Roussignol, deep in the rich, sunlit hills of the Dordogne. There, Jess’s ex-boyfriend and William’s father, Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle. Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she’s in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam connect with his own son. Jess can’t allow Adam to let their son down because she is tormented by a secret of her own, one that nobody - especially William - must discover.
By turns life-affirming, heart-wrenching and joyful, You Me Everything is a novel about one woman's fierce determination to grab hold of the family she has and never let go, and a romantic story as heady as a crisp Sancerre on a summer day.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Catherine Isaac forged a successful women’s-fiction career under the pseudonym Jane Costello. You Me Everything is her first novel writing under her own name—and could send her career into the stratosphere. (Case in point: film rights were optioned long before the book’s release). We join Jess and her 10-year-old son, William, as they set off through the gorgeously described French countryside to track down Adam, William’s absent father, and show him what he’s been missing. Isaac's characters are beautifully written—she challenges you to see past youthful indiscretions with her vivid, heartbreaking, and endlessly interesting portraits of very real people

You Me Everything
This such a well written, believable book, particularly the descriptions of the debilitating symptoms of Huntingdons disease and the effects on the individuals and their loved ones.
Most of all I think it is a story that everyone should read and be glad for what they have, that life isn’t easy but we have to get on with what it throws at us and make the very best of it. There is someone always worse of than yourself, as this story so clearly but positively conveys. Fantastic read!
Easy read - good escape
Flows along nicely - lovely read - storyline is a bit of a stretch but very enjoyable.
You Me Everything
Where to start, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read about this book, but it exceeded any expectations I had, it’s a lovely, heartbreaking, funny, happy, uplifting story, so well worth a read. The characters are so well written.
