Louisa Clark arrives in New York ready to start a new life, confident that she can embrace this new adventure and keep her relationship with Ambulance Sam alive across several thousand miles. She is thrown into the world of the super-rich Gopniks: Leonard and his much younger second wife, Agnes, and a never-ending array of household staff and hangers-on. Lou is determined to get the most out of the experience and throws herself into her job and New York life within this privileged world. Before she knows what's happening, Lou is mixing in New York high society, where she meets Joshua Ryan, a man who brings with him a whisper of her past. As Lou tries to keep the two sides of her world together, she finds herself carrying secrets-- not all her own-- that cause a catastrophic change in her circumstances. And when matters come to a head, she has to ask herself Who is Louisa Clark? And how do you reconcile a heart that lives in two places?

Louisa is starting a demanding new job in New York, while she tries to maintain a long-distance relationship. Will Louisa survive the challenge? This is Moyes' third novel featuring memorable heroine Louisa Clarke. If you want to start at the beginning, read Me Before You.

I loved this book. A story of family, love and a quest to find who you really are. I enjoy the way Jojo Moyes writes. I would highly recommend her books.

The love I have for not just this book but the whole series.
This book tipped me over the edge with love. I talked about this one so much so that my partner purchased me the hardback version of it (and the rest of the series) because I wouldn't stop recommending it to people or bringing it up in discussions. By the third you feel like your Lou's friend. And you're sitting on the edge trying to see what she's going to decide to choose to do next. There were parts I found unnecessary, as though JoJo was running out of time and trying to add conflict (like Josh's storyline) but overall. I can't recommend this book enough. And we finally see Wills perspective of life (before the accident though). Amazing. 

Also people who didn't bother reading the story didn't find that she became independent and what a wonderful thing that was.

I don't see the point to this book (yeah, $$$). Actually, I never understood why Lou went to New York in the first place -- she had a wonderful, loving guy in England, she just needed to find something worthwhile to do. I read the beginning of this one & then skipped to the end to find out what happened to her. The middle is a waste of time, borrrring, more of the same, yadda yadda, yadda.

The third in the trilogy about Lou, a personal carer, who suffered a devasting loss in the first book and spends the next two books putting her life in order. I absolutely absolutely loved the first book in the trilogy (Me Before You) and knew there was no way a sequel could ever live up to the first.... however, given that, I did quite like this book... I love the main character and I felt in this book, she was more herself than in the 2nd in the trilogy (After You). I enjoyed this more than the 2nd and, in fact, feel that Moyes could have combined the 2nd and 3rd into one book. But that said, this is certainly worth reading in my opinion.

Better than 'After You' but falls way short of 'Me Before You'. To be fair, I think it is hard for Moyes to compete with what she accomplished in the first book of the series.

Much better than the 2nd book "After You"
Lou is back to her old self again and its fun to read about her new adventures in New York.

I don't know if any of JoJo Moyes' books will ever compete with Me Before You, but having read the previous two in the series, this was a solid finale. Where After You was a bit sad and conflicting, this brings the series back around to a satisfying conclusion. The writing itself is wonderful, as is the characterization. The main character is amazingly realistic, and the emotions are strong. I cried more than once.

"You gotta have your places for community." Ashok raised a hand emphatically, slicing the air. "You gotta have places where people can meet and talk and exchange ideas and it not just be about money, you know? Books are what teach you about life. Books teach you empathy. But you can't buy books if you barely got enough to make rent. So that library is a vital resource! You shut down a library, Louisa, you don't shut just shut down a building, you shut down hope."
