Format: Kindle Edition
The Last Letter From Your Lover is a novel for romantics who believe that true love can never be denied.
Jennifer Stirling wakes in hospital after a car accident, her memory scattered. She returns home with her husband, who seems little more than a stranger, and tries to pick up the threads of a life she doesn't remember. Disorientated and unhappy, she discovers a love letter hidden in a paperback and pieces together a passionate history with a mystery lover.
Forty years later, Ellie discovers a letter in newspaper archives and is drawn by the parallels in her own life. She sets out to discover what happened to the star-crossed lovers, finding a story of love, betrayal, heartbreak and joy.
The story unfolds in a non linear fashion, Jennifer's story takes place in the 1960's but moves between the past and present to recall memories that she has forgotten, and illustrate the life she is leading. Moyes uses this to build tension and anticipation, providing no answers until the conclusion of the book. Ellie's story begins some forty years later, but I was far less interested in it except where it pertained to finding out what happened to Jennifer and `Boot'.
I felt for Jennifer much more than I expected to and I could not help but be swept up in the passion and romance she shared with Anthony. Generally I am unforgiving of infidelity but Moyes does well to ground Jennifer in the morality and social expectations of the sixties where women's choices were limited in a way modern women can barely consider. In contrast, I was far less sympathetic to Ellie, whose petulant and entitled attitude grated on me. It exposed a dilemma I am not terribly comfortable with admitting but I believe is a sign of a good book since it made me think.

I'm a sucker for romantic books. Not "romance novels," but good books that involve a poignant love story. It's a weakness, I guess -- one I happily indulge.

I just finished what may well be the best such book I've read in years: The Last Letter from Your Lover, by JoJo Moyes. Just released on July 7th (my own love's birthday), this novel has received rave reviews. The story starts in the early 1960s in London and the French Riviera; it later leaps forty years. It's a story of love, loss, missed connections, bad timing, heartbreaking letters, and wonderful characters.

Moyes is an exceptionally talented writer: superb pacing, great period details, realistic dialogue. Everything about this book feels authentic, which makes it all the more compelling.

This is a beautiful story, an utterly absorbing, romantic book. What a fine read!

I haven't enjoyed a book more in recent months, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid, well-written love story, involving two couples losing and finding each other over several generations. Along the way the lost art of handwritten love letters is honored. I only wonder why I've never read JoJo Moyes before now, but I will in the future.

I recently received a Kindle for my birthday, the same day I saw a review for this book written up in the Parade section of my newspaper. So, when my son asked me to choose a book so he could show me how to put it on my kindle I chose this one. I spent the next 3 days glued to my Kindle. My husband and kids thought it was the Kindle I loved (which I am begrudgingly enjoying) but, really, it was this wonderful book. I usually am not a sucker for love stories, but I could not put this one down! I just ordered the book version for my mom. I know she'll enjoy it just as much, and so will you.

I could not put this book down from the first page, and it kept me going until the last sentence!
A page-turning love story that was wonderfully written. I am sad that I have finished it.

Format: Hardcover
This is a novel that I was able to savor while I was on vacation. When I had a spare moment, I picked it up, and whether I had time to read 5 pages or 40, I was so excited to see what was going to happen next.

Jennifer Stirling wakes up in a London hospital in 1968. She doesn't know a lot. She's been in an accident, as evidenced by the jagged scar on her arm. Friends and family, a husband, have visited her, but she doesn't know them. Even when she leaves the hospital, her own home is a mystery to her. She doesn't feel any tie to this man that she's wedded to - wouldn't she feel something? In addition, the way people respond to her makes her wonder what kind of person she was, apparently not a very nice one.

When Jennifer finds a love letter seemingly address to her, signed only with "B," it begins to make sense to her. Perhaps she wasn't in love with her husband after all, but in love with someone else. But who is this man?

The way this story unravels is so unique, since the reader learns about Jennifer's past just as she does. Though I'm usually put off by storylines featuring adultery, the way this was handled with Jennifer almost being two different people, not remembering her former life, somehow lightened what might have normally soured the story for me.

The story of the year of 1968 ends and the story fast-forwards 30 years, introducing new characters. Again adultery is prominent, with Ellie being involved with a married man, wanting more from him and wondering why she's let herself get in this predicament. When she stumbles across an old love letter in some papers at the Daily Mail, she becomes interested in the story, and wants to track the lovers down for a story. She also has a personal angle.
