Synopsis: It is 1960. When Jennifer Stirling wakes up in the hospital, she can remember nothing-not the tragic car accident that put her there, not her husband, not even who she is. She feels like a stranger in her own life until she stumbles upon an impassioned letter, signed simply "B", asking her to leave her husband.
Years later, in 2003, a journalist named Ellie discovers the same enigmatic letter in a forgotten file in her newspaper's archives. She becomes obsessed by the story and hopeful that it can resurrect her faltering career. Perhaps if these lovers had a happy ending she will find one to her own complicated love life, too. Ellie's search will rewrite history and help her see the truth about her own modern romance.
Disclaimer: I received this book/ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are genuinely my own.
After reading Me Before You a while back, I was wondering if Moyes could do it again. I was more than pleased that this book was just as good. The characters were full of depth and transformation.
Reading Jennifer's story in the 1960's then jumping ahead to Ellie's story in 2003 was a great way to close the gaps and bring resolution for both Jennifer and Ellie.
The romance was cute but it was pretty mild. I think the story of the romance was more predominant that the actual romance itself.
Another thing that I liked about The Last Letter From Your Lover is that there was a clear resolution for all of the plot lines. It was a satisfying and happy ending. My main issue with the story was that it was a slow start. I didn't really start getting into it until I passed 85-100 pages. The good thing is, once I reached that point, the story was well paced and the plot was forward moving and well thought out.
If you haven't read Jojo Moyes before, this is a good place to start. This or either Me Before You. If you're curious about it, you can check out that review here. Have you read The Last Letter from Your Lover? If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
