The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes

Once again, another great read from one of my favourite authors! I can always rely on Moyes' novels to bring a smile to my face and completely suck me in to the storyline - be it about stolen art work, the relationship between a disabled man and his carer, or in this case a story of lost love. 

Like with The Girl You Left Behind, this story is split into two parts - largely, a tale of a woman in the 1960s, Jennifer, who wakes from a car accident to realise there is something not quite right with her marriage. When she is released from hospital and is back home, she starts to find a series of letters hidden away that tell of a secret in her marriage. The second part of the story is set in the present day, where a journalist stumbles upon Jennifer's letters and wants to know more. She soon realises hers and Jennifer's stories have more in common than she first realised. 

I adored this book - a really easy, pleasant read that I just couldn't put down. The perfect antidote for the start of a new academic year!

  1. I read this a few months ago, and have to say I really really enjoyed it. I also have the Girl You Left Behind to read too, so may have to get on that and read it soon :)
