“Unputdownable.” (Examiner.com "Pick of the Month October 2013")
“Beautiful, moving, and unputdownable.” (Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You )
“What a delightful novel! I was truly absorbed by Betty and Arlette. A wonderful perspective on the curiosity, confidences and deep affection that can exist between the generations. The story is ingeniously and seamlessly balanced within two different time frames, and the care Lisa Jewell devotes to the sense of place and the detailed fabric of each age gives her book a richness that both charms and moves.” (Juliet Nicolson, author of Abdication )
“Jewell’s many fans should eagerly embrace this story about two different women living in two different
times whose lives converge in the most unexpected way.... Family dynamics, the search for love and personal meaning, and the simple yet evocative daily motions of each woman keep the pages turning. Sure to be a popular title.” (Booklist)
“Lisa Jewell’s latest escapist love story is heartbreakingly good.” (Marie Claire (UK))
“GH favourite Lisa Jewell leaves the chick-lit tag firmly behind with Before I Met You, a poignant story about a young woman uncovering her grandmother’s bohemian life in 1920s London - and finding her own place in the world in the process.” (Good Housekeeping (UK))
“This is another emotional clever read from Jewell, beautifully written and populated with carefully constructed characters you’ll be rooting for as you race through it.... I couldn’t put it down.” (Sara Lawrence, Daily Mail (London) )
“Rich, delightful, heartbreaking and a joy to read….Through her skilled storytelling, Jewell has proven to me that she's to London, what Maeve Binchy was to Ireland and Scotland. I highly recommend this book for fans of historical fiction, but also fans featuring beautifully layered, strong coming-of-age stories.” (Book Rook Reviews)

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So much unnecessary story, so much blah blah blah not going anywhere. Arlette's story could have been good by itself, but the Betty story was nothing. Not connected. Not looking for what she was supposed to, which was, essentially, Arlette's story. Skimmed my way through to the end and returned it.

It's a sad story; many people don't live happily ever after. Still I was absorbed by it and I recommend it very highly.
I loved the way that the book flitted from the 1990s in Soho,where the grandaughted is trying to trace someone named in her grandmother's will, and then back to the 1920s when Arlette (the grandmother) was a young woman. This style made it a real page turner in my opinion.
