The Last Letter from Your Lover

Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2011
book | Fiction | 2010
UK → Hodder and Stoughton (Ed. Carolyn Mays)
US → Penguin (Ed. Pam Dorman)

When journalist Ellie looks through her newspaper's archives for a story, she doesn't think she'll find anything of interest. Instead she discovers a letter from 1960, written by a man asking his lover to leave her husband, and suddenly Ellie is caught up in the intrigue of a past love affair, despite, or perhaps because of her own romantic entanglements with a married man.

In 1960, Jennifer wakes up in hospital after a car accident. She can't remember anything- her husband, her friends, who she used to be. And then, when she returns home, she uncovers a hidden letter, and begins to remember the lover she was willing to risk everything for.

Ellie and Jennifer's stories of passion, adultery and loss are wound together in this richly emotive novel, which is interspersed with real 'last letters'.

Reviews

Two stories tantalizingly converge in Jojo Moyes' The Last Letter From Your Lover... Sherryl Connelly
NY Daily News

An engrossing double love story... The Last Letter from Your Lover offers a captivating tale of missed connections. Lauren Bufferd
Book Page

Moyes' writing has depth and you find yourself really getting invested in the characters. It's a great read with a satisfying ending.
Hutchinson Leader

Moyes disarms the reader with the normalcy of her voice. Her language is never lofty; she exposes her characters’ flaws with the literary equivalent of a fluorescent bulb’s naked light.
New York Times

It's everything a romantic novel should be. Emma Lee-Potter
Daily Express
Full Review

A beautifully written tale of passion, adultery, heartbreak and lost love...it’s everything a romantic novel should be.
Daily Express

A prize-winning, cross-generational love story of missed connections and delayed gratification hits a seam of pure romantic gold.
Kirkus

Full Review

The timeless romance is achingly moving.


Candis

Two intertwined tales of passion and heartbreak spanning 40 years. Just as fascinating are the real life 'Dear John' letters Jojo collected during her research.


Yours

The best book of the summer . . . a totally unputdownable read but one that should come with a severe warning: this will make you cry buckets on the beach. Beautiful.


Stylist

Two stories brilliantly intertwine in this unputdownable, top-class romantic read. You'll need to have Kleenex at the ready.


Woman & Home

A fabulously romantic tale that should inspire you to scribble some love notes of your own.


Glamour

The novel is perfectly balanced - a real page-turner and impossible to put down.


News of the World

Wonderfully moving and unashamedly romantic . . . Fraught with misunderstandings and packed with emotion, it will have you captivated from the very first page.

This poignant novel will make your heart flutter.
