With its realistically complicated characters and emotionally complex plot, "The Last Letter from Your Lover" is hopelessly and hopefully romantic.
Crafting a love story that feels not just compelling but true is a very difficult thing indeed and yet, with "The Last Letter from Your Lover," Jojo Moyes has done it twice. I found myself utterly transfixed by both sets of lovers in this marvelous novel. Moyes is a tremendously gifted storyteller, and I'm all admiration.
