Rating 7/10

Jennifer woke up with no recollection of her life after an accident. She feels as if this life she was living is wrong and everyone is so peculiar around her. Meanwhile, more than a century later, Ellie has stumbled across these love letters between Jennifer and Anthony. Ellie is on the hunt to figure what had happened to the lovers and comes across the romance she yearns for herself. Ellie sees that Jennifer didn’t love her husband at all and this was similar situation she, herself, was in. After reading these letters, Ellie feels empowered to go after what her heart truly wants.

I love this book and its very different from the novels I’ve ever read. The woman having the affair instead of the man having the affair. Very different and I enjoyed reading this novel. It made me wish that the protagonist, Jennifer, just divorce and go with this Anthony guy who appreciates her more than her husband does. However, I didn’t write this novel and don’t question the authors purpose. Nonetheless, this novel was so good I highly recommend this book.

Recovering..

After You – Jojo Moyes

Fiction.

Rating 9/10

Louisa Clark is recovering from the devastating event that impacted her life greatly. Will had opted for assisted suicide due to his incapability to live without pain. Louisa felt like a failure and went into a living of grand adventure then relaxing for a while. She has an accident that made her return home. She discovers how Will had felt when others had to take care of him, and he couldn’t take care of himself. As she heals, she begins to have hope for recovery.

I enjoyed reading this novel and just like the first one, I was emotional through the whole book. There was an excellent amount of complexity and the author maintained that very well. I love the first one a bit more than this one. Overall, I do recommend reading both novels in order. I was happy I have expanded my range of authors I’ve read.

Will seems distant but surely becomes attached to Louisa and so does his mother and father. Louisa overhears a conversation that Will wants assisted suicide. Louisa has to do everything she can to not let that happen.

This novel made me overly emotional. The storyline got increasingly complex and I did not put this book down for nothing. I had to continue reading until the end. I was so saddened by the ending but grateful of the ending. I love this novel a lot. I wanted to try out a new author and randomly selected this one and happy that I took a chance with Jojo Moyes. I want to read more of her novels soon. I recommend giving this one a read.
