Louisa suffered tragically upon the death of her employer and great love, Will Traynor. After visiting Paris and traveling throughout Europe, she ends up outside London, working at a bar in the airport. She joins a support group, where she meets Sam, the paramedic who saved her. Then a young girl shows up on her doorstep, claiming to be Will’s daughter, Lily. Louisa cannot remember any mention of a child, but convinces herself Lily is indeed a relation of Will’s. Lily is wild and unruly, and her mother has no idea what to do with her, so Lou steps in as temporary guardian. Feeling like she had failed Will, she tries to help Lily as best she can, while dealing with a new boss, finding work in New York, and trying to build a relationship with Sam.
Moyes’s sequel to Me Before You cannot match the emotions and energy of the first, but will help find resolution and hope in the face of great sadness. Several situations will invoke laughter, which helps to break through Louisa’s heartbreak, not only with Will’s death and the daughter he didn’t know he had, but also with a new love after such loss.
