The Last Letter From Your Lover

Synopsis (from Amazon): A Brief Encounter for our time, The Last Letter from Your Lover is a sophisticated, spellbinding double love story that spans decades and thrillingly evokes a bygone era. In 1960, Jennifer Stirling wakes in the hospital and remembers nothing—not the car accident that put her there, not her wealthy husband, not even her own name. Searching for clues, she finds an impassioned letter, signed simply "B," from a man for whom she seemed willing to risk everything. In 2003, journalist Ellie Haworth stumbles upon the letter and becomes obsessed with learning the unknown lovers’ fate—hoping it will inspire her own happy ending. Remarkably moving, this is a novel for romantics of every age.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: I love books that take place in the 60s.  The Last Letter From Your Lover goes back and forth between the 60s and 2003.  I can't imagine waking up in the hospital and not knowing anything and being sent home with a man who to you is a stranger. The manner in which we discover everything is brilliant and made me want to keep on reading. 

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I have really enjoyed other books by JoJo Moyes and am slowly making my way through them all.  Of course you can't help loving Me Before You (the book and the movie)! I have also read One Plus One and love it too.

Jojo Moyes is the New York Times bestselling author of One Plus One, The Girl You Left Behind, Honeymoon in ParisMe Before YouThe Last Letter from Your Lover, Silver Bay, and The Ship of Brides. Moyes writes for a variety of newspapers and magazines. She is married to Charles Arthur, technology editor of The Guardian. They live with their three children on a farm in Essex, England.
