Lou Clark has lots of questions.
Like how it is she’s ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places.
Or why the flat she’s owned for a year still doesn’t feel like home.
Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago.
And will she ever get over the love of her life.
What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change.
Then, one night, it does.
But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for – or just more questions?
Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe.
Open it and she risks everything.
But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she’s going to keep it, she has to invite them in .
Once Again JoJo Moyes has delighted me with her ongoing tale of Louise,although I must admit this one isn’t as polished as her last. Her sequel to Me Before You is just as funny but not as weepy.
Even though Louise has tried to live up to Wills advice and ‘Live well’ she is heartbroken still by his loss. She moved to Paris for a while, rented an attic flat and found a job in a bar, and then finds herself back home once again with no direction working in The Shamrock and Clover, another bar but this time in the airport.
After having an accident, Louise finds herself with another ‘project’ and this one is called Lily. A moody and emotional teen with something to say.
I’m glad that Louise has kept in touch with Nathan. Her family are just as mad and there is a chance of love for Louise.
JoJo Moyes is a fabulous storyteller and is an author I have recommended. She has a way of involving the reader emotionally. Even though After You is not as emotive as Me before You it is still worth a read just to see Louise’s journey come to an end.
