Paris, 1916. Sophie Lefèvre must keep her family safe while her adored husband, Édouard, 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of Jojo Moyes Best! I have read all of Jojo Moyes novels and this is my favourite. Moyes has a wonderful way with words not getting to mixed up in the details and truly focusing on her characters and their stories. Commonly Moyes will write about the lives of her characters by basing one in the past and the other in the future and surprising the reader in how there lives could intertwine in the most magical and heart warming ways. A dream to read....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful book! I feel the same as others, the story of life back and forth from 1916 to present day was very intriguing! I was spell bound reading this book. My first time to read a book by J. J. Moyes. The story was excellent right to the end. It kept me in suspense until the last chapter of the book. Excellent writing! I highly recommend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am OVERWELMED with adoration for this book! I ABSOLUTELY loved this book! Having read Jojo Moyes books before, I was hesitant after Part I. After that, I could NOT put the book down. SUCH a wonderfully crafted story; bringing past and present into a stunningly beautiful narrative about love, resilience and the human capacity to wonder in beauty! I LOVED every word and relished in the incredible story Ms. Moyes brought to life. EVERY character was, in their own way, completely 'human' and beautiful. Thank you for such a great read!
