Her works are available in a staggering 43 foreign languages and have sold twenty-nine million copies in total worldwide. Jojo Moyes said, “I always knew that once I committed to write the sequel to Me Before You, I would also write a third book; I saw it quite clearly as a trilogy. Revisiting Lou has been a joy, as I push her into a completely new country, a brand new world, and a house full of secrets. With her usual blend of humour and emotion she has to ask herself some pretty fundamental questions – not least, which side of the Atlantic does she really belong? I hope readers enjoy this new adventure as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it.” Pamela Dorman, Publisher of Pamela Dorman Books, said, “Any new Jojo Moyes novel is a cause for rejoicing.  But for readers in America, the chance to have the iconic Lou Clark come to New York to find a new life is a particular pleasure.  There’s no doubt that Jojo’s unique blend of great storytelling and unforgettable characters, combined with a sense of humor all her own will make this new Lou Clark novel one readers will be clamoring for come next year.” Jojo Moyes is a UK based author who worked at the Independent for ten years before leaving to write full-time. She lives in Essex with her husband and their three children. Jojo is managed by Curtis Brown and her agent Sheila Crowley.
