Description

Soon to be a major motion picture streaming on Netflix starring Felicity Jones, Shailene Woodley, Callum Turner, Nabhaan Rizwan and Joe Alwyn

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Giver of Stars, a sophisticated, page-turning double love story spanning forty years


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.

    I passed this book up SO many times before finally giving it a go. Do yourself a favor, don’t pass it by. Just click buy/download now. It’s worth it.

    Came across this book and started reading the sample, and I was hooked. I bought it, and read the book immediately. Well written, with characters who feel real/multidimensional. The superficiality of a 1960s decorative housewife reminds me of 2021 social media “perfection”, and had me rooting for Jennifer to break free and be her real self.
  • BEST BOOK I’VE EVER READ!

    By Not so technical, technically
    This book was beautifully written. It is elegant, romantic and heart-wrenching. It is my favorite! I originally read it over 8 years ago, I still have it in my collection.
  • Slow start but strong finish

    It took a while for the story to pick up steam and really hook me but it was worth it. The back and forth timeline formJennifer’s story in 1960 was a little disjointed at first but it made the conclusion better. I enjoyed the characters in both parts of the story. In the end a feel good read.

    By Very fun game.......
    Rarely do I find a book that I thoroughly enjoy cover to cover... this is one of those few! It was very enjoyable and unpredictably enough (my usual biggest gripe) to keep me interested. A great read!
