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.

    A heart-warming story about love lost and found. Great present story with strong ties to the past.

    "Loved the story; loved the narrator!"

    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!

    "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 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.

    "Love Stories with a Twist"

    Two star crossed couples, two different time periods, same problems! This story was captivating because the characters were so well developed. I became so engrossed in their lives, I found myself worrying about them when I wasn't listening. Definitely worth listening to/ reading.

    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!

    "Complex and beautiful!"

    I've really come to like JoJo's writing. She masterfully explores complex issues within relationships, weaving rich love stories, not saccharine sweet, but rich and deep. Also like Susan Lyons performances. I couldn't turn it off in the end. Just finished this and want more! Will likely listen again!

    "Story had to build to be good but glad I read it."

    I thought it started slow and I really wasn't sure I connected to the characters or even liked them. I thought about taking it back.
    The last third of the book really pulled the story together and engaged me in being interested in the characters and what would happen next.

    "Great narration"

    Basically a decent book, I think the author added the last chapters just to lengthen the book.
