Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

Praise for Jojo Moyes:

'What a wonderful, thoughtful and moving book. I was riveted all the way through. Absolutely loved it.' Sophie Kinsella

'Destined to be the novel that friends press upon each other. More than any other, Lou and Will are a couple who readers will take to their hearts as they did One Day's Emma and Dex. A novel that demands an afternoon on the sofa with a fistful of tissues.' Independent on Sunday

'A triumph. Packs such an emotional punch, you'll need a box of tissues.' Elle

'Magical and heartbreaking. Waterproof mascara essential.' Marie Claire

Extract

2007

When he emerges from the bathroom she is awake, propped up against the pillows and flicking through the travel brochures that were beside his bed. She is wearing one of his T-shirts, and her long hair is tousled in a way that prompts reflexive thoughts of the previous night. He stands there, enjoying the brief flashback, rubbing the water from his hair with a towel.
