After YoueBook - 2015
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.

I thought Jojo Moyes had made me cry all of my tears when I had finished Me Before You. Not so! After You not only made me cry but growl in anger, laugh out loud, and cheer for Louisa as well.

SummaryAdd a Summary
The follow-up to the hit. The story of what happened to Lou in the first couple years following Will's death.
Although not as good as Me Before You, Moyes' novel After You was very good. It continues the story of Louisa Clark two years after Will's death. She has a difficult time adjusting to her current life/world, but she realizes she has grown because of her life with Will and now she fears loving too much and losing that love. . . once again. But, by joining a recovery group, ironically, she discovers she is fine and loves again.

[New love interest for Louisa, maybe?]
"Who is this?" I said, though I knew immediately who it was. "Sam. Ambulance Sam. I was just passing by on the way home from work, and I just... Well, you left in such a hurry the other night, I thought I'd make sure you were okay." "A fortnight later? I could have been eaten by cats by now." "I'm guessing you weren't." "I don't have a cat." A short silence. "But I'm fine, Ambulance Sam. Thanks." "Great...That's good to hear." I shifted, so I could see him through the grainy black and white of the little entry video screen. He was wearing a biker jacket instead of his paramedics uniform, and had one hand resting against the wall. He took his hand off the wall and turned to face the road. I saw him let out a breath, and that small motion prompted me to speak. "So...what are you up to?"-excerpt, After You
