by Jojo Moyes

Reviewer Rating:


I both liked and didn't like The Girl You Left Behind. I enjoyed the book's two settings: 1916 and present day. I learned a lot about German-occupied France during World War I. I also liked the main male character during the present-day setting. However, I had a hard time feeling sympathy for the main female character during the present-day setting; she seemed overly whiny and dramatic. The book is also romance-y, which was a bit of a turn-off for me, but by the time the romance started in earnest, I was invested in the book. I would suggest giving this book a try if you're interested in historical fiction or stories about art provenance (and if you don't mind romance).
