Sender Unknown


Jojo Moyes has reinforced my admiration of her work with The Last Letter from Your LoverPublished in 2010, this fictional novel took a long time to capture my interest, but in the end, I came to like it a great deal.

This was a slow-going read for me. If you find it the same way, keep with it as the end justifies the wait.  The story is about a woman in England who awakes with amnesia caused by an automobile accident.  Everyone around her, including her wealthy husband, are strangers.  Not long after the accident, a confused Jennifer discovers a handwritten love letter hidden among her things signed only with the letter “B”.  The letter can’t be from her husband whose name is Laurence. So begins her search for a mysterious great love she cannot recollect.

The novel switches back and forth in time quite a bit.  This I didn’t enjoy.  However, as I said earlier, the end of the novel justifies the path taken to get there.  If you are already familiar with Moyes’s work, I think you will enjoy this one as well.
