Jojo admits that this follow-up to Me Before You came as a result of popular demand. Fans wanted to know what happened to Lou after Will died. However if you haven’t read the first book it matters not for this is complete in itself. A tale of a young woman hurting badly after death by assisted suicide of the love of her life. It tells of her sad coping, of stumbling, existing and trying so hard to heal. It is a very fine novel in its own right. If you have read Me Before You then this will mean a lot to you. Lou discovers Will had more to his life than she realised and discovering bits about him makes for a fascinating read. Suffice to say that it is good and that is all you need to know before buying it. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
This is the sequel to the worldwide phenomenon Me Before You. Jojo Moyes says: I hadn't planned to write a sequel to Me Before You. But working on the movie script, and reading the sheer volume of tweets and emails every day asking what Lou did with her life, meant that the characters never left me. It has been such a pleasure revisiting Lou and her family, and the Traynors, and confronting them with a whole new set of issues. As ever, they have made me laugh, and cry. I hope readers feel the same way at meeting them again.
