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 is 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.

A spellbinding, intoxicating love story with a knockout ending, The Last Letter from Your Lover will appeal to the readers who have made One Day and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society bestsellers.

    " I had a difficult time going back and forth with the different settings in time. I got confused often and had to keep looking back and forth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mona Miller | 2/11/2014

    " Enjoyed this more than I thought I would--got really sucked up in the story, especially the older one (that mostly takes place in the 60s). Everyone in our book club liked this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jodi | 2/10/2014

    " This book is so suspenseful and it is not a cheesy novel, as the title might suggest. Really worth reading! "

    " This book held my interest the whole way, loved the way it was wrote,loved how you felt like you knew the people and it was great how it was wrapped up. I really must get some more books by Jojo. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Fredlund | 1/31/2014

    " Infidelity is infidelity. It's wrong! That said I really enjoyed the book. The story drew me in immediately. She is a solid writer and the story was absorbing.I am happy to have discovered this writer. Also finished "Me Before You" which I enjoyed immensely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/28/2014

    " Another cracker from Jojo Moyes set in current times and in the 1960s following a lady who met the love of her life after realising her husband doesn't care for her. The letters her lover writes to her are the star of this story as Ellie, a journalist in current times uses them to write an article and to try to find out what happened to the two back in the 60s. A lovely story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 1/19/2014

    " I am not a romance reader of any kind, yet loved this book. I can understand how we are all human. How things are simple yet complex. Affairs of today versus affairs of the past. I enjoyed how the author captures life in the 60's and life in 2003. This book is a must read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 8/18/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judie Parks | 10/4/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 2/25/2012

    " Well written and I thought the plot was very original. i was almost 3/4 through the book before I guessed what the ending would be. I thought the main characters dialogue was very well done and that they were very likable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danelle | 1/24/2012

    " Classic "love of your life" story mixed with tragic sadness, near-missed happiness, and poetic reunion. Love letters for the romantic in all of us. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelsey | 12/27/2011

    " Mixed feelings on this one. It kept me interested but I didn't feel a lot of chemistry between the main characters (forgetting their names since I finished the book awhile ago!) and all of their near misses became a bit annoying. But it was still enjoyable and I'd recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aoife O'Brien | 12/4/2011

    " I adored this book - a wonderfully creative and imaginary piece that keeps you hooked the whole way through. Moyes has a great talent at alternating between two stories but ensuring that they are intrinsically linked throughout. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meghan | 10/9/2011

    " Wonderfully sweet story with touching heartfelt characters. Makes you believe that true love does exist and it never dies even in the midst of separation, trials, and years of the unknown. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 10/8/2011

    " Loved it! I was wishing I'd noted some quotes, as the author has a beautiful way of expressing things. The depth of emotion, the raw ache of disappointent, the thrill of anticipation - they're described so convincingly that it was hard not to read just one more page! "
