The Girl You Left Behind

Wow! I loved this book! I want to read The Girl You Left Behind  by Jojo Moyes again immediately but I already know what happens so I don't think it would be the same. I do hope someone makes it into a movie!

If you like fast-moving, historical fiction with some mystery, you might love this book that begins in in Northern France in the middle of the First World War and features a painting, a woman named Sophie, and her family and small town. As they struggle to survive impossible conditions the story of the painting unfolds. Then the story skips forward to present day England where Liv is desperate to hold onto the painting. She risks everything in a court case that eventually ties up all the loose ends of the story from the previous century and her own story. 

This is the second book I've read by Jojo Moyes and I'm looking forward to reading more. KPL has many of her books available in both print and ebook format.

I just read this book also and really enjoyed it, especially the historical chapters. I thought those chapters were stronger than those from the present. This is the first book I've read by her....I've put a hold on several...have discovered a new author.
