  "Another hit by Moyes" by dinib (see profile) 08/07/13

I received an Advance Reader Copy through The US version will be released August 20, 2013.

I first discovered the talent of Jojo Moyes when I read Me Before You (5*). My next read by Moyes was The Last Letter from Your Lover (3*). The Girl You Left Behind (GYLB) is a nice blend between the two writing styles. Like Me Before You, the story grabbed me from the beginning and kept me turning the pages late into the night to find out what happened next. GYLB is similar to The Last Letter because it has alternating points of view and timelines. Part I starts off with the German Occupation of France in WWI; whereas, Part II is 2006 London. I feel this type of narrative is being overused lately by several authors, but the method worked for GYLB. Each plot line had enough depth of characters and details for an immersion in both stories. Moyes does a fine job of weaving both of the stories together to a satisfactory conclusion. I look forward to more books by Jojo Moyes.

Jojo, this was so so FABULOUS! I loved this story; the mystery, the relationships, characters, the writing....well I loved everything. You have to read this right away because I said so and because you will be missing out on an amazing read if you don't.

Wonderful story....interesting with the two different realms of time coming together to explain what happened to the families. There were times the book left me confused in regards to some of the characters, but it was overall a well written book. The main thought of the book for me was some of the choices that we make in life...was it for the best? Was it a mistake? Did my choice benefit anyone? I would suggest this book as a good read.

This book was difficult to put down. I read it cover to cover in two sittings.
