The sequel to Looking Back, Looking West is so named because the Rivett family moves to Vancouver when Don retires from banking. Ironically, in a few years he becomes a victim of Alzheimers..

While in Montreal, Bess has a job at the Montreal Neurological Institute, working with Drs. Penfield and Jasper in their research and treatment of patients with epilepsy. A move to Huntingdon, Quebec, brings many new friends-for-life, as does a move to Beebe, which straddles the Canadian/U.S. border. In Vancouver, Bess works for five years in the UBC library.

She spends many years caring for Don. For Bess, diversions help, one of which is Brock House, dedicated to leisure activities for retired people in Vancouver. She is also asked to participate in a research project that takes her to England — investigating the death of Florence Nightingale — a mystery that Bess tackles with her usual sense of curiosity and wonder.
