“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.”
—Paula McLain, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Wife
“A fabulous, emotional, and evocative book—perfect for anyone who loves Mad Men.”
—Sophie Kinsella, bestselling author of Confessions of a Shopaholic
“This story of passion and missed chances—with a twist that provides fresh perspective 40 years later—is entrancing.”
—Parade (Top Pick)
“A prize-winning, cross-generational love story of missed connections and delayed gratification [that] hits a seam of pure romantic gold. . . . A cliffhanger-strewn tale of heartache in two strikingly different eras [and] a tour de force.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Elegiac . . . emotionally ablaze . . . Moyes’s genuinely captivating tale resonates deeply in today’s fast-paced, less gracious world.”
“What’s astonishing about this ingeniously crafted dual love story . . . is how swiftly and effortlessly Jojo Moyes pulls you in. . . . Like an afternoon spent watching a beloved old movie, made wonderfully new.”
—Barnes & Noble Review
“Toggling between two eras, Moyes cleverly juxtaposes the conventions of old-fashioned and thoroughly modern romance.”
“A modern yet ageless story of the human heart and its tenacity to hold on to a love that will not die or be replaced. Beautifully written . . . Jojo Moyes’s novel gives the satisfaction of a fine wine and meal before the fireplace on a winter’s night.”
—Leila Meacham, New York Times bestselling author of Roses
“Exciting, moving, intriguing; the atmosphere’s perfect, the plotting is masterly, the characters are brilliant.”
—Penny Vincenzi, author of The Best of Times
“An engrossing double love story . . . a captivating tale of missed connections. The Last Letter from Your Lover is itself a love letter to the all-but-disappearing handwritten message.”

I will be leading the discussion of this book at our book club meeting and I anticipant a lively discussion on views of relationships past and present (1960s to today, book ends in 2003) . Jennifer and Ellie are the 2 main ladies of this book and a lot has changed since Jennifer's era. Boot writes great love letters- do some still get them today?? I would highly recommend reading this book, especially for people who believe in second, third, etc. chances.
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!
She was right. I did.
Though still staged much like a Lifetime movie, there was enough grit and topical conflict to keep me hanging. Though it took me a while to grasp the timeline presentation of plot, it fell into place and I appreciated the contrast it highlighted in the main character. It worked.
Overall, it was, l I loo e I stated previously, so worth it.
Read it, I think you'll like it as well.
