Reviews for Life After You:
“[LIFE AFTER YOU] is raw, riveting and beautifully written…much recommended.” – BBC’s Andrew Marr.
“The story brims with charm, courage and wit…at times hysterical; heartbreaking at others, this is a wonderful book that has you cheering on its very likeable, funny and talented heroine as she moves from despair to a kind of hope.” (Deidre O’Brien, Sunday Mirror Book Club Choice)
“Lucie’s memoir, which started life as a very personal blog, is a raw howl of disbelief at the speed with which a baby-making quickie could turn to life-shattering tragedy. Life After You is, despite everything, a story of survival and, cautiously, recovery… A wrenchingly funny read.” (Jane Shilling, Daily Mail)
