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.
After You is quintessential Jojo Moyes - a novel that will make you laugh, cry, and rejoice at being back in the world she creates. Here she does what few novelists can do - revisits beloved characters and takes them to places neither they nor we ever expected.

Doesn't come close to, Me Before You.
This was a very average book following an amazing book. It does describe how the tragedy of assisted suicide goes on to affect the survivors for he rest of their lives. Some of the plot was a bit far-fetched,however it was a decent story. If you fell in love with Louisa from the first book you will probably enjoy this one, but it's not a stand- alone book. I can't say I didn't enjoy it - it just doesnt come close to,Me Before You.

Fine, but not as good as Me Before You
Jojo Moyes' books really do not fit into my favorite genres, but the powerful story Me Before You caught my attention. I later read The Girl You Left Behind and liked it. After You simply does not have the impact of either of the books mentioned above. The narration is fine, but the single narrator simply is not as good as the multiple narrators used in the other two novels.
