Me Before You, by JoJo Moyes

Me Before You by JoJo Moyes

A young woman’s life is transformed by the events that take place in a temporary job in a challenging situation.   Lou(isa) is contracted to be the caregiver for a severely depressed quadriplegic man for six months.  In a fairytale like manner, the transformation includes falling in love with her charge and discovering depths of inner strength and courage buried within herself.  The story becomes even more intriguing when it reaches beyond being an emotionally engaging love story and challenges perspectives of what is right and wrong, selfish and unselfish about highly controversial ethical issues.  This book is well worth reading and crying over.
