Another Good Read

Me Before You by JoJo Moyes was recommended to me by my good friend Barb F. Isn't it great to have like-minded "avid reader" friends, who share their "good finds"?  I am so lucky to have many friends who love to read, so my list is ever-growing... All suggestions welcomed.....
Me Before You is well written and has a thought provoking storyline. After losing her job in a Tearoom, Louisa takes on a job as a caregiver to a young man who is a quadriplegic. She and Will come from very different backgrounds, and have quite opposite personalities, but eventually they manage to forge a friendship and come to trust one another. It isn't long before Louisa discovers that there is a reason for her new position being only a 6 month contract and this changes her feelings towards her new responsibilities. I don't want to give away the plot, suffice it to say it is thought-provoking and emotional. You will laugh and cry, feel hope and despair, and be quickly drawn into the character's lives. You can't help it, and consider yourself warned- it's hard to put this book down. And you'll be thinking about it a long while after you turn the final page....

Peace,
Linda

Oh, Linda, I read that book too. I loved it. I started to read it and just kept going and going until it was done. A very different read, but thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommend it to all.
I have a stack of books to read while on holidays. Emily Giffin's new book, "The One and Only";
Nora Roberts, "Red Lily"; and Beth Harbinson, "When in Doubt, add Butter" Light reading for the summer months.

I, too, read that same book and so thoroughly enjoyed it. I just finished reading The Town That Drowned" by Riel Nason. This was also a good read about events that took place when the Maxtaquac Dam was built.
