The romantic novel revolves around the lives of Louisa Clark, a 26-year-old girl who has landed a caregiver position to take care of Will Traynor, a wealthy yet acerbic 35-year-old man who spent two years of his life as a quadriplegic after a devastating motorcycle accident. At the beginning of the story, Lou works as a waitress at a cafÃ©, but when it is shut down she is forced to take a job caring for Will so she can help with her families financial difficulties. Will and Lou hate each otherâs guts, but as the story progresses, the two lead characters are able to get to know each other better and start to create a friendship and even a blossoming romance. Liesl Schillinger, a regular contributor to the New York Times Sunday Book Review has described Jojo Moyes work as âa love story and a family story, but above all itâs a story of the bravery and sustained effort needed to redirect the path of a life once itâs been pushed off course.â Other readers of the book have viewed it as an engaging and thought-provoking novel. The story starts from mutual animosity that transforms into a story of friendship and love within the six months that Lou and Will spent together and teaches its readers to live life and live it well.
