Despite rising early, doing the weekly baking, the shopping, the washing, the ironing etc etc I got distracted and haven't any photographs of stitching to show tonight.
In summary, Will Traynor meets with a tragic accident and is left a wheel chair bound despondent quadriplegic. Louisa Clark, hired by Will's mother as a care assistant, bounds into his life full of colour, wit and bright ideas. Several weeks into her six month contract she overhears a conversation and realises why her employment is fixed term. Subsequently all her efforts go into an "anti-Bucket List" for and on behalf of Will. Some escapades are comic (the visit to the races), some are moving (the classical music concert), some are heart wrenching (Will's pneumonia), some are familiar (Louisa's birthday party dinner at her home) but nothing prepared me for the final scene or the emptiness I felt on Louisa's behalf. Me Before You definitely falls into the category of a weepy love story but manages at the same time to be most thought provoking. Read it for yourself but be warned you will be engrossed and like me, will be totally distracted from your stitching.
