Book Recommendation. A couple of books by Jojo Moyes

If you like a bit of a romance but with a deep thought-provoking topic, I would recommend you a couple of books by the writer Jojo Moyes.

The first one of these books is "Me Before You". It is a story about a tetraplegic man and the way he regards life. Even the topic sounds quite gloomy, the author actually doesn't really goats over the sadness and delves into a much more intense topic. And the end is not the one you would expect. This is the plot:  

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.

The other book is "The Last Letter from Your Lover". It is a very moving story that combines different levels in the past with the present. It is about how luck, coincidence, or destiny could change the course of our lives for the wrotng reasons. I really loved this book. This is the plot:

 When journalist Ellie looks through her newspaper's archives for a story, she doesn't think she'll find anything of interest. Instead she discovers a letter from 1960, written by a man asking his lover to leave her husband - and Ellie is caught up in the intrigue of a past love affair. Despite, or perhaps because of her own romantic entanglements with a married man.In 1960, Jennifer wakes up in hospital after a car accident. She can't remember anything - her husband, her friends, who she used to be. And then, when she returns home, she uncovers a hidden letter, and begins to remember the lover she was willing to risk everything for.
