The Last Letter From Your Lover – Jojo Moyes

Having read two of Moyes book previously to this one I knew that I would enjoy this one.

The Last Letter From Your Lover was an easy read for me. Yes it was long but the words just ran into each other and ‘Just one more paragraph’ became ‘One more page’ and then of course ‘Just this chapter’

I found that Jennifer Stirling was quite bold for the time as she was living in the early 60’s, however, each time her bold personality came out her husband would dhut her down so as she would become more subdued.

After she meets Boot I find her a lot more zesty and fun-loving and free! Which I love!

I found that Jennifer Stirling was quite bold for the time as she was living in the early 60’s, however, each time her bold personality came out her husband would dhut her down so as she would become more subdued.

Ellie’s charachter was subdued only because her lover was married and she’s in love with him. She seems to have shut herself off from the world because of this.

I did actually find Ellie a little annoying because she was upset that her married lover wasn’t spending much time with her or messaging her much but then again I didn’t know if John was in love withh her or what was going to happen in the end so I can’t judge.

As the book goes on we see how both women start to come out of their shells and are able to be their true selves.

I found this book really fresh, it was like a drink of water on a hot day and I really enjoyed how the story flowed. The twist I found at the end filled me with joyand slight trepidation as I remembered ‘Me Before You’ and how much hope I had and how I ended up hysterically crying, but, ‘Last Letter From Your Lover’ has a happy ending and it made me smile.

I do have to be honest though, there are some hard parts to get through, emotionally hard that is. And, it is difficult to watch the pictures in my head at certain arguments etc. (I don’t want to give too much away).

There is truly something magical about authors that can so precisely describe emotions that I can laugh and cry along with the characters and Jojo Moyes is one of those authors.

So if you haven’t yet had the chance I would suggest reading this book, which you can get here.
