Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.<br> <br> What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.<br> <br> Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.<br> <br> What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.<br> <br> Praise for Jojo Moyes:<br> <br> 'What a wonderful, thoughtful and moving book. I was riveted all the way through. Absolutely loved it.' Sophie Kinsella<br> <br> 'Destined to be the novel that friends press upon each other. More than any other, Lou and Will are a couple who readers will take to their hearts as they did One Day's Emma and Dex. A novel that demands an afternoon on the sofa with a fistful of tissues.' Independent on Sunday<br> <br> 'A triumph. Packs such an emotional punch, you'll need a box of tissues.' Elle<br> <br> 'Magical and heartbreaking. Waterproof mascara essential.' Marie Claire </p>

Library Journal Review

Despite her lack of nursing experience, former waitress Louisa Clark lands a job as daytime caretaker for recently paralyzed quadriplegic businessman Will Traynor. Will's wealthy family prays that this cheerful young woman can dispel Will's depression and determination to end his own life. Louisa is horrified when she learns that euthanasia has been scheduled and sets out to enrich Will's life enough to restore his will to live. Moyes (The Girl You Left Behind) writes with such intimacy that the listener almost feels like an eavesdropper. Susan Lyons's reading brings Louisa to life, with an array of other voices that relay the thoughts of key characters in Will's life. Verdict Recommended for all collections.-Judith Robinson, Dept. of Lib. & Information Studies, Univ. at Buffalo (c) Copyright 2013.
