In 7 Up, Lynn’s ambition was to work in Woolworth’s. Instead, she went to work in a library and by 42 Up was still there, a rock of stability among the three friends. But 42 Up finds Lynn devastated by news that her job as a children’s librarian might be abolished. The mother of two wrestles with her anger over losing her life’s work and with her fears over how it will change her family’s life.
