“Still Me” is a delightful journey through the complexities of navigating a new world among New York’s elite. Louisa finds herself working for the wealthy Gopnik family, and as she integrates into their lives, she encounters a blend of intrigue, luxury, and personal challenges. The novel beautifully captures the essence of New York – its grandeur and hustle – offering readers a vivid experience of the city.

Moyes’ storytelling is engaging and heartfelt, as she weaves the struggles and triumphs of Louisa’s life in the Big Apple. The character’s determination to ‘live boldly,’ a mantra inspired by the late Will Traynor from the first book, resonates throughout the story. Louisa’s journey is not just about the physical distance from her home but also an exploration of her identity, her resilience, and her capacity for love and kindness.

The story is a roller coaster of emotions, with moments of joy and sorrow so closely knit that they often overlap. Moyes masterfully blends British humor and genuine, relatable characters, making “Still Me” both entertaining and thought-provoking. The novel emphasizes the theme of self-discovery and the power of choice in shaping one’s destiny. Louisa’s character evolves beautifully, showing that even in the face of unexpected turns, one can always find a way to reinvent oneself.

In conclusion, “Still Me” is a testament to Moyes’ skill in creating a narrative that is both entertaining and emotionally rich. It’s a story about love, resilience, and the endless possibilities life offers. Fans of Louisa Clark will find this book a satisfying continuation of her journey, while new readers will be drawn into Moyes’ captivating world.
