The Last Letter from Your Lover is an engrossing book that tells a love story that spans over 40 years. The book begins in the life of a wealthy young couple in the 1960s. Jennifer Stirling has just been in a car accident and has lost her memories. She finds letters that indicate the existence of a love beyond her marriage. The first part of the book drifts back and forth telling the story of that affair as it happens and her attempts after her accident to recover those memories. It is almost as if we learn of the events as she regains those memories also. It puts the reader in the book. The remainder of the book tells a more chronological story about 40 years later. You can see the ending coming, but that does not make it any less enjoyable.
I can describe this book in one word "wonderful" it draws you in at the beginning, pulls you along so that you cannot put it down and then breaks your heart. I hated to see this book end-it was that good. It tugs at your heart and of all the books I have read this is definitely one of the best.
