Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now.
A sophisticated, page-turning double love story spanning forty 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 who have made One Day and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society bestsellers.
Sounds delicious, right? It was Life After Jane’s gushing review that first put The Last Letter From Your Lover by Jojo Moyes on my radar, which was published in the UK last year. The title is a tad literal for my taste, but I love the US cover and I’m always on the lookout for another contemporary romance-type read. I didn’t seriously add this to the TBR though until I saw that Sarra Manning of Unsticky fame recommended Jojo Moyes as an author who writes contemporary romance with depth. (Much thanks to Chachic for daring to ask the author herself via Twitter). With that strong rec now I definitely cannot wait to read Moyes latest, which is due out internationally on July 7.
What’s on your wishlist? Has anyone read Jojo Moyes before?
