The story starts in the present with Ellie the journalist trying to make sense of her life, her career is on the rocks due to lack of concentration, she is having an affair with a married man, John and she has one chance to salvage all. While working on a story she comes across a letter in the archives that takes us back to another era. The letter strikes a cord with Ellie and she is determined to find out what happened between two past lovers - Jennifer and Anthony.
The book is written in the present and past which intertwine perfectly and complement each other. Its contains passion, heartbreak, emotion, adultery and the hand that fate plays in it all. Absolutely brilliant and so well written. I can't wait to read more of Jojo's books.
I did enjoy the story, however, I felt that Jennifer's story was stronger than Ellie's story and I wanted to know what happened to Jennifer more than I wanted to know what to happened to Ellie. I enjoyed the connection between both women and how they helped each other.
This was the first book I have read by Jojo Moyes and I hope to read more of her books.
Probably it is a bit unfair to review "the last letter from your lover" comparing how outstanding "Me before you" is... but I just can't really understand the romance between Jennifer and Boot, why do they have to make it so difficult? And all the characters are so unlikeable... I found it so hard to keep reading it, the letters are boring, the whole book is boring... and the fact that the whole book was referring to the 60s makes it even more boring...
And being in the modern world, I found myself very difficult to show any sympathy for Jennifer... she's just incredibly annoying, indecisive and thick! I understand sometimes an affair could be exciting, a forbidden love can be romantic... but there are just not enough evidence to support this so called "romance"!
Sorry Jojo, I love "Me before you", but not this one...
All her books are different and I like that you can't second guess what is going to happen.
