Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Boring, predictable, and drawn out story!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone with more patience than me.


    What was most disappointing about Jojo Moyes’s story?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Susan Lyons is always a good narrator. Her voice was the only thing pleasant about the book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Just the narrator


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "i love 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.

    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.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Wonderful story -Beautifully done"

    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.

    "A true love story of star crossed lovers."

    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.

    "Intriguing Beautifully-Imperfect, Resilient Love
    "

    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.
