Even as Moyes tackles the inflammatory issues around art stolen during wartime, she never loses sight of the driving engine of her narrative . . . this pleasurably assured writer skilfully balances the quotidian and the comic with the broad and universal, leaving us with the tantalising possibility of a potential caper to come (Independent on Sunday)
Jojo Moyes paints a genuinely moving, beautiful picture of how love and belief will ultimately win the war, even if they can't win the battle. The Girl You Left Behind is a true work of art (Fabulous)
This story is wonderfully well-written and completely engrossing, with exquisitely drawn characters in a brilliantly plotted narrative. It will make you think long after you finish the final page (Daily Mail)
Moyes is the queen of the classy weepy and this won't disappoint. A masterclass in story-telling that fans of Me Before You will adore (Elle)
Another heart-stoppingly brilliant novel from Jojo Moyes (Marie Claire)

So now we move on to "The Girl you left behind", which starts in Paris during WW1. Edouard has been called up to fight the war and Sophie is running the family Inn with her sister, Helene, outside Paris. On the wall of hotel is Eduoard's painting "The Girl you left behind" depicting Sophie looking happy and seductive. So, this is the first major inconsistency. The first section of the book is absolutely fantastic, and describes in vivid detail the hardships of people in France during WW1 and the occupation of both the village and the Inn by the Germans.Read more ›
