REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
And for my next ride on the Jojo bandwagon: The Last Letter from Your Lover. This one draws attention to the lost art of letter writing in a digital age, explores a woman’s place in midcentury society, and tells a forbidden love story, all great elements handled with care. But in the end, I liked it a bit less than others I’ve read, because I honestly didn’t like or identify with the characters all that much. Any of them. But: it does have the clever parallel storyline with the trademark twists and turns and reveals at just the right moment. So I have to confess that even if I didn’t like them much, I was kind of dying to find out what happened them. Once again, Moyes does not disappoint.
