After her grandmother Arlette's death, Betty is finally ready to begin her life.

Now she's ready for whatever life throws at her, and, since the will included a beneficiary unknown to her who lives in the city, she heads there to find the mysterious woman... In 1920s London, Arlette is starting her new life in a time of postwar change. Beautiful and charismatic, she's drawn into a hedonistic world, but then tragedy strikes, and she flees back to her childhood home... When Betty's search leads her to a man-someone who meant the world to her grandmother-the secrets of Arlette's past may help Betty find her own way to happiness in the present... A rich detective story and a captivating look at London then and now, Before I Met You is an unforgettable novel about two very different women, separated by seventy years but united by big hearts and even bigger dreams.

Oh my Lisa Jewel !!!Your love of words is showing and i enjoyed every word! Exquisite book!!! Such great overlapping stories. I really enjoyed this book and grew to love Betty, Arlette & Godfrey!!! (I even googled Godfrey, hoping he was a real musician) Being paired so perfectly with Helen Duff the narrator. She brought the characters to life. I love the accents . And i cried happy tears in the end. Thank you for giving us an awesome escape into this gorgeous story

It started out a good storyline but then plunged into descriptive behavior I don’t want to hear about. Ruined it for me. I wish they would rate books for content then I wouldn’t have purchased it in the first place. There is right and wrong. Vulgarity is vulgarity.
