    "MUST READ"

    An absolutely first class book which stays with you long after you finish it, I simply didn't want it to end. Jo Jo Moyes has done it again, how she does it time after time is amazing. This book is highly recommended.

    "Beautiful"

    Everything about this book was beautiful. Both narraters were perfect and the story lines both past and present were captivating. Jojo Moyes is so tallented. I'm so glad I bought this in audiobook format as I'm sure it added even more enjoyment to an already superb book and I know I will listen again at some point. To me, this was even better than 'Me before You' and I didn't think that would be possibe!

    "Mixed feelings"

    I really enjoyed listening to the parts of the story set in Wartime France but unfortunately every time the story switched to modern day and the narrator changed with it my enjoyment was significantly reduced. I can't put my finger exactly on what I didn't like ... it was as if she was just reading it without any real conviction or sympathy with the characters, frankly she just made it a chore to listen to and spoilt the whole thing for me.

    "Interesting Story"

    I enjoyed the narration of this book.... It made me laugh, the accents added to the enjoyment, not accurate by any means but enjoyable non the less. At least you could tell who was who, plus they were English as opposed to American, which makes a nice change.

    The story was a good one with a couple of nice twists.It also had all the ends tied up nicely, I like that. The "love" scenes were hilarious,

    "Captivating!"

    I really enjoyed this book, especially Sophie's story. Initially I wasn't so keen on the narrator of Liv's story but she grew on me. This is the third of Jojo's books that I've 'read' and I have found all three compelling and very enjoyable (other books were Me Before You and Last Letter From Your Lover).

    "Another great book from this author !"

    Really lovely story, I wasn't sure about the French accent at the beginning, but it didn't put me off as I thought it might. As with all good books, felt a little sad when it ended !

    "Flawless storytelling"

    I'm a great fan of Jojo Moyes, though it took me until we burst into the 21st century until I felt this story really flamed – and then I was completely hooked. The characters were fabulous (even minor ones like Liv's dotty Dad), and there were many, many twists and turns that kept me listening long after I should have stopped. Can't wait for the next Jojo Moyes offering!



    Really well read, too.
