My friend sent me a list of 7 soul crushing books. My friends know me so well, and know that I love a good tragedy.
You Before Me, did not disappoint. It was beautiful, endearing, and so sad. So, so sad.(yes, that is a Doctor Who reference.) It tells the story of Lou Clark who goes to work for Will Traynor after an horrible motorcycle accident. It’s about the fact that we can’t help who we love, we can’t help the choices others make, we can’t stop bad things from happening. But, we can control how we spend the time we do have with our loved ones, and how we show them that we love them. We can control what we do with the life we are given, how we tap into our potential.
This is my second book this year by Jojo Moyes, and I just might have a new favorite author.
