Overview

The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes

Look out for Jojo’s new book, Paris for One and Other Stories, available now.

A heartbreaking, stay-up-all-night novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You, After You, and One Plus One.

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.

This beautiful poignant story is not a light-weight romance but an emotional roller coaster with lots of exciting twists and turns that won't allow you to put the book down In 1960, Jennifer Stirling had an accident and woke up with no memory of her past. When she tried to fit into her mysterious life, everything seemed like a distant dream, including her husband. She stumbled onto some passionate love letters addressed to her from "Boot". The excitement begins here. It's so worth your time. Don't miss this one!

I guess when I was eyeing this book, my mind was thinking of the movie An Affair to Remember. I didn't quite feel the pull at my heartstrings with this story though, so I was a little disappointed. I thought the romance that developed between Boot & Jenny dragged on too long; the same passion and love they felt for each other could have been conveyed in a shorter amount of writing. Maybe the author was putting more time into explaining the content, the culture, societial views, expectations of that past time, but I wanted the storyline to move. The only emotional attachment I felt was for the love letters but not much for the characters. The last third of the book was what I was waiting for; it had the sparks, the romance, the thrilling anticipation, and got you involved. I enjoyed this pair's romance and story much much more. I liked how the author tied everything together, the differences and the similiarities between lives, generations, and time, and how the story ended. Overall, it was a good read but the beginning was slow to get through.

I loved it! Great herione, great storyline - twists and turns and surprised all throughout the book. Easy read, and I never saw any of what happened coming! Good romance and good action! I highly recommend it!!!

It is a story that tuggs at your heart. Wonderful characters that you can visualize. I can see the story with truth as my mom was married during the 60"s with no job, education, and unable to brake the model of wife. The meaning and consequences of divorce in the 60's is completely different then it is today. Such an enjoyable story that will stay with you for smetime!

Nice story but utterly predictable. I read it on vacation, turned the pages quickly and then just as quickly it became a distant and pleasant memory. There are some nice historical touches, but the characters are one dimenensional.

This story could have been told in a much more interesting manner; one which keeps you interested and waiting for what happens next. Instead, you read and read to find out some small detail. Much too wordy.

So much more than just a romance. I could not stop reading this story. The characters were so real; I felt as though I was in their stories. Definitely a few tears. Amazing read!

I am not a big fan of love stories but OMG. This was such a good book!! I could not believe how quickly I finished it just out of pure curiosity. I love how although the love story started in the 60's, I was still able to relate when it flips to modern day with texting and email. It just goes to show how much times have impacted relationships/love. I would absolutely recommend this book to any and everyone. It was sooo good and an easy read which is always nice!

I'll say it plainly and simply. I loved The Last Letter from Your Lover. This novel has love letters, a London backdrop and star crossed lovers all woven beautifully into a plot that takes hold of you and does not let you go. My heart ached as I read. Author Jojo Moyes does an excellent job at giving this novel a mysterious atmosphere as well as unexpected twists and turns. I felt like I was discovering clues alongside Jennifer, the answers were right on the periphery of her vision, yet far from her grasp. She longs to remember her life before the accident. I could not help but wonder what happened to her mystery lover. I won't say much about her love, except "wow". He blew me away and their courtship had me on the edge of my seat. Oh my gosh, the love letters. They are simply signed with the initial "B" so Jennifer cannot remember who he is. "B" by the way is the initial of the first name of a character in a novel who Jennifer nicknamed her love after. These love letters are the kind that make you sigh and hug the book when you read them. Jennifer is a well developed character, she is unhappy with her life and her four year marriage seems to be one of convenience. Her character grows throughout the story and heartbreak changes her in a realistic way. I found that everything came together beautifully, from the different characters to the turns of events that occurred. Just when I thought I knew what would happen next, I found myself stunned, I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The storyline goes back and forth from Jennifer waking up with amnesia and trying to remember her life, to how she met her mystery man and fell into a torrid affair with him. Towards the end, the story jumps forward to 2003 where a journalist named Ellie Haworth discovers one of the long lost love letters and want to find out whatever happened to these people. At first this jump in time upset me because I was so immersed in Jennifer and B's love story but I found myself involved in Ellie's storyline as well. There's a quote by William Styron that goes, ..A good book should leave you slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it... That about sums how I felt about The Last Letter from Your Lover. This book will make my top reads of 2013 and is officially one of my all time favorites. Disclaimer: This review is my honest opinion. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book. I purchased my copy of this book.

I loved this book. It should be required reading by every wife who has been betrayed by infidelity. It presents in story form, how each participant in an adulterous relationship is affected and doesn't sugar coat the impact cheating has on everyone. The story made me cry and laugh. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

Skimmed throuh a lot of this of 340 page book. Did not hold my interest very well, because it was very predictable, and rather boring. It repeated the same actions over and over. Well edited. Sexual situations. 18 and up AD

After reading JoJo Moyes' Me Before You and After You, I decided to read some of her earlier books. So glad I did!! Absolutely loved this story, the kind you savor for days!

This novel is mostly written in the past, during a time when women were expected to keep the house and let the man be the head of it. On the outside, it looks as if Jennifer has the perfect life. She’s married to a wealthy man and has a beautiful house. She keeps up appearances, but what she really wants is to feel loved and share closeness with a man. She’s growing tired of material things. Warning, there are several cases of cheating and affairs from several of the characters. This is a tale of missed opportunities, circumstance, love letters and serendipity.

The story takes place in London during the 60's and present day. A reporter finds a love letter and decides to write a story about the letter. The reporter hopes that the letter and the story will save her from losing her job. What she (the reporter) gets is much more then a story. Jo jo Moyes never disappoints. She is a gifted writer and each book is different. Unlike some authors who have the same story line.

So, our book club just finished another book by this author, called "Me Before You" which I liked so much I started this one yesterday. And finished it. IN 10 HOURS. I love books set in the 60's (or really, at any point in the past) and then being able to see how life has changed in the decades that follow (trying not to give too much away here) as well as a book in which I like EVERY character, even if they are cheating lying bastards. Ahem. Anyway, highly recommended. A teeny TEENY bit predictable at the end, but very surprising points throughout the book as well. Falling in love with the characters and the story itself makes up for it. Almost need a break from anything at this point, to let all of this awesome sink in.
