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.

    "Pretty Disapointing"
    Would you try another book from Jojo Moyes and/or Susan Lyons?

    It took me so long to get through this book compared to her others. The beginning of the story verged on confusing and boring. It was difficult to follow. The real story didn't pick up until part three and even that was predictable.

    Story
    "Exceptional!"
    Would you listen to The Last Letter from Your Lover again? Why?

    Yes, it is so moving, the characters are so real, the plot so well developed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Letter from Your Lover?

    When I learned that Boot was the librarian.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Lyons – was your favorite?

    Boot


    Who was the most memorable character of The Last Letter from Your Lover and why?

    Jennifer. So much more time is spent with her. And she drove me mad with how she treated Boot. I wanted to shake her.


    Any additional comments?

    The book got off to such a slow start, with no action for so long, that I got bored and nearly put it down for good. But boy am I glad I didn't! It ranks as one of the more memorable books I have ever read.

    I am an avid "reader"- I prefer to listen to books rather than read them due to the added dimension added by the narrator.

    "Fabulous!!!!! Just Fabulous"

    The only other JoJo Moyes book I had read prior to listening to The Last Letter from your Lover was Me Before You, which I really enjoyed. However, this book took me through a deep range of emotions and I was entranced. Heartbreak and triumph, happiness and sadness. Wonderful characters and wonderful, real relationships. This is a great story and the writing is beautifully and artfully done. Bravo! Can't wait to read One plus One.

    Classic love story - well read - great listen! Just as good as "Me Than You" - different, but just as well written and read. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend!

    Any additional comments?

    This is the best of Jojo Moyes' books in my opinion. Even better then her two books which are presently on the NYTimes best seller list.
    Susan Lyon's performance is simply wonderful!

    "Worth Every Minute of Listening"

    I adored this story. I was completely captivated and loved the time like. I walk while I listen to books, and I logged quite a few miles listening to this book for 15 hours.

    Story
    "Jojo Moyes is a fantastic writer"

    There is a bit too much going back and forth between times in this book and that's the only negative I can say about it. I loved the desperate love story between Jennifer and Boot. It was so well written and you felt you were right in the middle of them as they went through their heartbreak time after time.
    The ending was a bit off since I figured they would have been able to meet up somehow before too long, but I guess that's the way the author wanted it to end.
    This book kept me captivated and locked into each character which is what you want in any story. Well Don Jojo. I am off to purchasing another one of your books.

    Story
    "Went on and on and on"

    This book seemed to have lasted forever and not in a good way. The beginning dragged on and just when I thought it was getting somewhere the story took a 4 year then a 40 year leap and then dragged on with a new woman . The only reason I didn't stop altogether is wanting to find out if they ended up together. This is my 3rd Jo Jo book, the 1at was good and Thea next two, not so much. No more JoJo!

    "Such a drag!"
    Would you try another book from Jojo Moyes and/or Susan Lyons?

    I've read other Jojo Moyes books and thoroughly enjoyed them.


    What was most disappointing about Jojo Moyes’s story?

    The story repeated itself. It went no where. It was predictable. And why was anyone in love with Jennifer? A boring empty-headed woman with nothing going for her. Ugh.
