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.

Jennifer of course. She went through so much.
Haven't listened to any others.
That the letters/files were never given to Anthony, they were forgot about for over 40 years, tragic.
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!

One of the best novels I've listened to in a long time. It's beautifully written, suspenseful and very romantic, featuring star-crossed lovers in the 1960s and in the early 21st century.
Inspiring love story
The ability to relate to the characters. We've all faced crossroads in our lives.
True love is worth the wait
I didn't read the print version
I liked the way it didn't give away the ending and let you have some hope. I loved the characters-they were very real in their feelings and actions.
I thought she really captured Jennifer-the socialite, but also, the lost girl
I think I would take Jennifer-she seems so genuine and really cared about people. I'd like to know how she brought out the best in others,
My daughter told me to listen to this book and I'm so glad that I did. It had romance, mystery,sorrow, but with a happy ending. What more could you ask for?
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
I liked the happy ending , but I didn't like how relationships are based on cheating .. even of the other partner is not worth it .. try separating before getting involved with anyone for a change
I had to rewind the last paragraph twice to fully understand that it was a happy ending , but I was kind of expecting it
When Jennifer called Ellie for the first time , and all the scenes with Rory
I think they made the same story as a movie with much better morals ( Letters to Juliet) very nice movie check it out
I didn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted but I was glad that I listened to it .. the narrator is so slow put her on x2 and you'll be fine :)
No, I think it's easier to follow with the print version and there are little paragraphs at the start of every chapter that you miss out on when listening to the audio.
Jennifer, the way it was spoken truly captured how I thought she would sound.
More depth to the characters. The slight change invoices.
I'm not sure I am reading a different published edition to this book but some of the words & sentience structures slightly change through out the audio book compared to the print.
Tepid plot, no character development, poor writing, wholly unrealistic, just BORING. A waste of time.
