The Last Letter from Your Lover
book | Fiction | 2010
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'.

Epic, romantic and completely and utterly brilliant. My book of the year. Lisa Jewell
The timeless romance is achingly moving.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lose yourself in this emotional tale!
