The Last Letter from Your Lover has similar structure to another Jojo Moyes book The Girl You Left Behind. There are two stories in one book. Details from the past affect the future …

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.

Is there a happy ending here? Depends. Happiness is not always what we imagine it to be. Sometimes it’s about ourselves, have our own beliefs, find our own path, write our own story.

The book? I actually like the idea of someone finding love letters and trying to solve the mystery of who is behind it…
