Book Club Meeting

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (400 pages)

Please join us for socializing anytime between 9.00 am and 9.30. The meeting begins promptly at 9.30.

Your book suggestions are welcome. Please contact Kate G. or Pat with your recommendations.

This from amazon.com:

Before Louisa met Will, her plans didn't reach beyond their tiny English town. Will, when he wasn't closing multimillion-dollar deals, blew off steam scaling mountains, leaping from planes, and enjoying exquisite women--until an accident left him paralyzed and seriously depressed. When his mother hires Lou to keep his spirits up, he meets her awkward overtures with caustic contempt, but she's tenacious and oddly endearing. Their fondness grows into something deeper, gaining urgency when she realizes his determination to end his life, and her efforts to convince him of its value throw her own bland ambitions into question. Plumbing morally complex depths with comedy and compassion, Jojo Moyes elevates the story of Lou and Will from what could have been a maudlin weepie into a tragic love story, with a catharsis that will wring out your heart and leave you feeling fearless. --Mari Malcolm

    This is a new experience for me. I've never joined a Book Club.
    Will someone fill me in?
