4.25 stars

This novel is mostly written in the past, during a time when women were expected to keep the house and let the man be the head of it. On the outside, it looks as if Jennifer has the perfect life. She’s married to a wealthy man and has a beautiful house. She keeps up appearances, but what she really wants is to feel loved and share closeness with a man. She’s growing tired of material things.
Warning, there are several cases of cheating and affairs from several of the characters.
This is a tale of missed opportunities, circumstance, love letters and serendipity.

This was a solid read - I enjoyed it and was surprised at times (much was predictable, though). This is a great read for the beach or a flight. It will keep you interested but you won't have to think too hard. I did have a lot of trouble with the Ellie character . . . I just could not get over her personality and actions - I didn't enjoy her "chapters" as much as the rest of the book. ( )

Not my usual read but it was very enjoyable. A woman wakes up in the hospital with no memory of her past. Once home, she finds a letter indicating she was in the middle of a great love affair. Several decades later, more of these letters turn up in newspaper archive, forcing one young journalist to question her own life and the relationship choices she's made.

As I said, not my usual thing but engaging. Would make a great book for the beach.

The British edition is so much prettier! Stupid American cover. ( )

Liked, didn't love. Fun escapist read, but really a little too filled with near-misses and coincidence for me, and the ending was a bit cheesetastic. ( )

Book description
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.
