Library Journal Review

Louisa Clark conquers New York! The heroine of Me Before You and After You takes on a new job as the personal assistant to the young wife of an enormously wealthy financier in Manhattan. Lou quickly learns that being a society wife is hard work, especially because the ex-wife, daughter, and their friends hate the new wife and snub her. Louisa's generosity and optimism lead to misunderstandings and mishaps, despite her best intentions, but each time Lou stumbles, she pops back up in a better situation. In this case, she becomes a caregiver for an elderly former fashion editor whose apartment is filled with vintage designer clothing-just the ticket for Louisa. Tragedies turn into triumphs. The story is effervescent and delightful. Anna Acton's narration is perfect; each character's individual voice and accents (British, Noo Yawk, Polish, Pakistani) are on target. VERDICT Highly recommended.
