From the New York Timesbestselling author of Me Before You, a spellbinding love story of two women separated by a century but united in their determination to fight for what they love most
Jojo Moyes’s bestseller, Me Before You, catapulted her to wide critical acclaim and has struck a chord with readers everywhere. “Hopelessly and hopefully romantic” (Chicago Tribune), Moyes returns with another irresistible heartbreaker that asks, “Whatever happened to the girl you left behind?”
France, 1916: Artist Edouard Lefevre leaves his young wife, Sophie, to fight at the front. When their small town falls to the Germans in the midst of World War I, Edouard’s portrait of Sophie draws the eye of the new Kommandant. As the officer’s dangerous obsession deepens, Sophie will risk everything—her family, her reputation, and her life—to see her husband again.
Oh how JoJo Moyes moves me…….I loved Me Before You and this book is absolutely completely different but perfect just the same! I love historical history and I love how history can be weaved into present day and this novel does this perfectly! There was not one story I loved more and I truly loved and felt for each character! I don’t want to give anything away other than the fact that this needs to be your next read!!!
