A sophisticated, pause-resistant double love story spanning 40 years - an unforgettable Brief Encounter for our times.
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.
A spellbinding, intoxicating love story with a knockout ending, The Last Letter from Your Lover will appeal to the readers and listeners who have made One Day and The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society best sellers.

Someone with more patience than me.
I love books - reading and listening to books. It is rare that I do not finish a book, but I could not finish this one. The storyline was not only boring, but predictable and sooo drawn out! I kept thinking it would eventually go somewhere but it did not! I did not care what happened 40 years later so deleted the book.
Susan Lyons is always a good narrator. Her voice was the only thing pleasant about the book.
Just the narrator
I kept thinking this book would get better and wasted a lot of time listening in hopes that it would. This is my first review - I just felt compelled to give my opinion because it is the opposite of the positive reviews I read before buying this book.
A beautiful story beautifully written. It is a little slow in parts, but I couldn't stop reading it anyway. Highly recommended. The end is worth waiting for. beautifully crafted.
All I can say is, if you have not read this book, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR.
Narration super, story superb! LOVED,LOVED,LOVED IT!!!!
I read Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. I think that this one equals it. I am a big fan now and will look for more of Jojo's stories. I love when all of my emotions are spoken to.
I am a total audiobook addict! I travel quite a bit for work and listen to them while I drive. Always searching for a good author to follow
This is another great Jojo Moyes story. It starts in 1960 and finishes in 2003.
It has some wonderful twists in the story that I wasn't expecting. All in all, another lovely story and well worth a listen.
The romance by JoJo is so wonderfully portrayed that you can feel it within yourself....you want it for yourself. I love a good book that literally takes me away! Very sweet.
I had a hard time connecting with the characters at first but see now the necessity of the way the story began. I don't think there is another writer out there right now who can capture the human essence the way this author does I don't have the words to describe how deeply this book affected me and how it has caused me to reexamine the choices we make and the timing of those choices. What if one choice costs years? Absolutely beautiful.
I liked how the book forced the reader to imagine what life was like, before the age of computers, texting and gender equality. I imagine this would be an interesting read if you were contemplating an extra marital affair.
Loved the story! It has an intriguing plot, well developed, and humanly, imperfect characters finding their way to happiness, and even love in a world not always kind, and rarely easy.
Close to the top - this was a great story and well told.
It was not predictable - many surprises and all good!
