    DescriptionAnother "New York Times "bestseller by the author of" Me Before You "and "One Plus One"--a spellbinding story of two women united in their fight for what they love most Jojo Moyes's word-of-mouth bestseller, "Me Before You," catapulted her to wide critical acclaim and struck a chord with a wide range of readers everywhere. Now, with "The Girl You Left Behind," Moyes returns with another irresistible heartbreaker--a breathtaking story of love, loss, and sacrifice told with her signature ability to capture our hearts. Paris, 1916. Sophie Lefevre must keep her family safe while her adored husband, Edouard, fights at the front. When their town falls to the Germans in the midst of World War I, Sophie is forced to serve them every evening at her hotel. From the moment the new Kommandant sets eyes on Sophie's portrait--painted by her artist husband--a dangerous obsession is born, one that will lead Sophie to make a dark and terrible decision. Almost a century later, Sophie's portrait hangs in the home of Liv Halston, a wedding gift from her young husband before his sudden death. After a chance encounter reveals the portrait's true worth, a battle begins over its troubled history and Liv's world is turned upside all over again.

    Review quote
    Praise for THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND: "Vibrant and gripping." --"People Magazine "(***) "Jojo Moyes expertly weaves a bittersweet tale in this irresistible novel, taking careful interest in the dark corners that exist within great love stories, and the trickiness of simple happy endings. A-" --"Entertainment Weekly" "Moyes writes delicious plots, with characters so clearly imagined they leap off the pages in high-definition prose. . . . Clever plot turns make for a satisfying ending . . . Moyes brings fresh strokes to this story about the power of art and love to transcend what imprisons us. Romantics looking for a story set amid the politics of plundered art couldn't do much better than "The Girl You Left Behind."" --"USA Today" (3 1/2 stars) "Jojo Moyes builds on her strengths in this moving and accomplished new novel. As she did in the best-selling "Me Before You," she asks readers to think in fresh ways about a morally complex issue. . . . "The Girl You Left Behind" is strong, provocative, satisfying fiction." --"The Washington Post" "'In this moving paean to daring, determination and perspicacity, Moyes keeps the reader guessing down to the last hankie." --"Los Angeles Times" "Good storytelling." --"New York Daily News" "In her latest heart tugger, Jojo Moyes deftly weaves the story of newlyweds in WWI France with that of a young widow in today's London." --"Parade" "Lovely and wry, Moyes's newest is captivating and bittersweet." --"Publishers Weekly "(starred review) "Moyes ("Me Before You") has created a riveting depiction of a wartime occupation that has mostly faded from memory. Liv and Sophie are so real in their faults, passion, and bravery that the reader is swept along right to the end. This one is hard to put down!" --"Library Journal "(starred review) "Moyes ("Me Before You," 2012) writes with such clarity that one can almost see the eponymous 100-year-old painting at the center of her wonderful new novel. . . . an uncommonly good love story." --"Booklist"
