After You/Jojo Moyes
Jojo Moyes’ After You shows one woman’s journey in discovering herself following a sudden tragedy. Louisa Clark was not only caregiver to but romantic partner with rich quadriplegic Will Traynor who had chosen to end his life by assisted suicide. His death elicits a hole within Louisa and a previously unknown daughter, Lily Houghton-Miller. This turbulent sixteen-year-old delinquent meets her paternal grandparents and learns precious facts about her father all with the help of Louisa. What had already been an intense rollercoaster ride of emotions for Louisa Clark intensifies. When it seems Louisa and Lily have only compacted more stress into their lives, their worlds spin topsy-turvy and both come out on top, loved and optimistic, with indispensable knowledge about life.
