I've become a bit of a Jojo Moyes fan since reading Me Before You, however, none of the other books of hers which I've read since have lived up to that one. The one I've just read has come the closest though.
I downloaded The Girl You Left Behind on to my Kindle without knowing anything about it, other than that it was written by Jojo Moyes, I didn't even know the outline of the story, but it had me gripped straight away.
The first part of the story takes place in occupied France during the First World War. Sophie Lefevre's husband, Edouard, has gone to fight in the war leaving her behind to run her hotel. She's ordered to serve up dinner each evening to the German troops and the Kommandant takes a shine to the portrait of Sophie, painted by Edouard, which hangs in the bar. His obsession with the painting leads Sophie to take the biggest gamble of her life.
Fast forward nearly a hundred years and the painting is now owned by Liv Halston. It was bought for her by her husband, who has since died, whilst they were on honeymoon. But where's it been in the interim? This is what Liv has to find out.
If you enjoyed Me Before You I'm sure you'd enjoy this book too but be warned, have a box of tissues at the ready.
