about

"This story of passion and missed chances is entrancing." —*Parade*

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite by Jojo Moyes This is my fifth Jojo Moyes novel, and my absolute favourite. I love how she was able to weave all the characters, past and present into a really touching love story. I couldn't put this book down and zoomed through it in two days, as did my mom. It is a great read that you can share with friends and family once you're done!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kept Me Wanting To Know What Happens I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I liked how Moyes' went back and forth between time periods, characters and voices. It is a really sweet love story. I definitely became emotionally invested in the characters and was anxious to find out if they get their "happy ending."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you like Jojo Moyes... Moyes writes great "chick-lit", books you can devour in a weekend (or a day if you commit!) she really has the ability to make you connect with her characters and feel a roller coaster of emotions. She is not for everyone but sometimes you need exactly what she's giving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Read - Couldn't stop This book surprised me with how it kept my attention. I read this for my book club and wouldn't have chosen it myself, but it ended up being a really good book. It was written very well with how it jumped from different characters. Would recommend this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Classic Jojo Moyes The Last Letter from Your Lover is typical of Jojo Moyes, and I think that's a good thing! This story is told in alternating accounts between the past and present day. There is some suspense as you wonder what happens to the characters as their story unfolds. I didn't like this book as much as The Girl You Left Behind, which I think is my favourite Moyes book. However, this is still a nice story and is an enjoyable read. I recommend it if you are a fan of Moyes already, or if you are looking to read a well-told story!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Read! I loved this beautifully written novel by Jojo Moyes, and the way it flips back and forth between the present and the past. I was honestly blown away by the ending, and I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a great adult romance novel with some mystery and suspense thrown in as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better Than Average "Chick Lit" Jennifer Stirling is a typical 1960’s housewife. Typical, that is, for her social standing. She feels she does nothing but decorate her husband’s life, but then that’s what all her friends do as well. Then one morning she wakes up in the hospital, remembering nothing about the accident that put her there, or her life before that. Slowly, through hidden correspondence she finds in the back of her closet, glimpses of her previous life come back to mind. It’s definitely not what she expected. An unhappy marriage? A lover? Plans to run away? All with a man she knows nothing about except that the letters are signed with a “B”. Jump to 2003 when features writer Ellie Haworth finds a copy of one of the letters in a dusty old file in the archives of the newspaper she works for. Too intriguing to ignore and much to the chagrin of her editor, she puts everything else aside to investigate this letter that so touched her heart. As she begins to pull the story together she realizes that the parallels between her story and Jennifer’s are both uncanny and disturbing. This book is told in three distinct parts; Jennifer’s story, Ellie’s story and then, the two collide. It is a love story but it is also so much more than that. It’s a commentary of the differences in women’s roles in the early 1960’s, the beginning of “women’s lib” and the role of women in the 21st century. It also explores, and this is the part I found so fascinating, the differences in the way people correspond with the coming of email, cell phones and text messaging. That in itself so clearly defines the differences in the lives of the two main characters. I really enjoyed this book and, as I came to the last pages, I didn't want the story to end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Last Letter from Your Lover - Jo Wow, what a novel!! It had me from the first paragraph and from there I could not put it down. I wish I had a love like that. A must read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Story I loved this book so much that I couldn't wait to finish it so I could write a review and recommend it to friends. I loved reading about Jennifer in 1960. Her life opened my eyes to the "real enough" traditions and ideals of her time. Once the letters stopped, and all of a sudden we were with Ellie in 2003, you could not help but feel invested in this love affair. With both a modern and nostalgic tone to it, you could really imagine the fashion and legacy of the 60s in London.This book would be great for anyone.
