Me Before You/Jojo Moyes/369 pgs.
Louisa Clark is living a rather normal existence until she loses her job. She helps support her family, so, in desperation, takes a job for which she has no training: companion to a quadriplegic, Will Traynor. Before his accident, Will, who comes from money, was highly successful in his own right. He worked hard, and played hard. Being confined to a wheelchair, and dependent upon others, was not in Will's plans for his life. So, how do two totally different individuals develop more than a boss/employee relationship? And how can Louisa dissuade Will from his ultimate plan? It's an engrossing story, with well developed characters, and a story line that will stay with the reader for quite awhile. Highly recommended!
