Product description

A heartbreaking, stay-up-all-night novel from the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Me Before You "and" One Plus One""A Brief Encounter" for our time, "The Last Letter from Your Lover" is a sophisticated, spellbinding double love story that spans decades and thrillingly evokes a bygone era. In 1960, Jennifer Stirling wakes in the hospital and remembers nothing--not the car accident that put her there, not her wealthy husband, not even her own name. Searching for clues, she finds an impassioned letter, signed simply "B," from a man for whom she seemed willing to risk everything. In 2003, journalist Ellie Haworth stumbles upon the letter and becomes obsessed with learning the unknown lovers' fate--hoping it will inspire her own happy ending. Remarkably moving, this is a novel for romantics of every age.

By purplecuriosity.com 10 Jun 2014 4

Second novel I have just read by Jojo Moyes and I have noticed she has a talent in making her novels seem like a movie. You can envision through her words, the characters the emotions they present. Her usage of multiple time frames and locations, provides a complex but detailed plot enabling the readers to feel constant emotions and gain a wider understanding of the novel. Honestly, if this was made into a movie I believe it’ll be a tear-jerker!
