Clear your diaries, make a cuppa and find a comfy chair. Our exciting, hot-off-the-presses book club choice for October is After You - the sequel to the worldwide bestseller Me Before You. Prepare to be engrossed...
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...
'A tender, funny and hopeful look at love, grief and life. Bumper box of tissues required' Stylist
Author Jojo Moyes grew up in London and after a varied career (including stints as a minicab controller, typer of braille statements for blind people for NatWest, and brochure writer for Club 18-30) she did a degree at Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, London University.
She worked as a journalist for ten years, including a year at South China Morning Post in Hong Kong, and nine at The Independent where she worked variously as News Reporter, Assistant News Editor and Arts and Media Correspondent.
Jojo has been a full time novelist since 2002, when her first book, Sheltering Rain was published. Since then she has written a further eleven novels, all of which have been widely critically acclaimed. She has won the Romantic Novelist's Award twice, and Me Before You has been nominated for Book of the Year at the UK Galaxy Book Awards. Me Before You has since gone on to sell over 3 million copies worldwide.
