The Last Letter from Your Lover
on 15 November 2016
This is the first time I have read Jojo Moyes although I have heard much about her books. After finishing I kept wondering what took me so long to get round to reading this author. She has written an absolute masterpiece. A real tear jerker with an ending full of hope for the future.
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.
