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.
This book is not a romantic novel, yet love features heavily in it in a beautiful and true fashion. It tells the story of Lou & Will and their surrounding nearest and dearest over an 8 month period of life. This book, is beautifully written and lovely till the end, however if you want a perfect love, this isn't for you. I would reccomend this to anyone but just be careful on your mindset upon reading it.
Just a lovely book. Simple
