by Jojo Moyes

Reviewer Rating:


The book flashes between present day London and German occupied France during the First World War. The portion of the book during WWI tells the story of Sophia, a young woman struggling to help her family survive in a small French town occupied by German soldiers. The other portion of the book centers on Liv Halston, a young widow struggling to come to terms with her husband’s death. These stories are brought together by a painting, The Girl You Left Behind.

Although I liked this book, I hard time getting through about 100 pages in the middle. In my opinion, it dragged on a little but I don’t want to discredit the story itself. It was interesting, original and I’m a sucker for a good love story. I found the way the two story lines merged very original.
