"Know this at least: somewhere in this world is a man who loves you . . . A man who has always loved you and, to his detriment, suspects he always will."

1960. Jennifer Stirling lives a life of luxury with her wealthy husband. On paper, she has it all. In reality, she's dangerously devoted to another man who is asking her to risk everything . . .

2003. Ellie Haworth works as a journalist for a national newspaper and is in love with a charming writer. On paper, she would be happy. In reality, her career is foundering and the man who holds her heart belongs to someone else . . .

When Ellie stumbles upon a set of passionate love letters from the 1960s, both women's lives entwine. And as she pieces together the fragments of the past romance, what she unearths dramatically transforms her life, and Jennifer's in the process.

Amazon recommended The Last Letter from your Lover to me just as I was looking for something to read that was slightly off my usual beaten track. I assumed that it was because I had previously ordered Me Before You, but maybe it had more to do with the recently released Netflix version. Looking at the plot summary for the film, it looks like it may miss out on some key elements of the book, just like they did with Me Before You where the book was definitely deeper than the film.

Anyway, it's an engaging story of Ellie, a ditzy journalist in the wrong place in her life, finding some old love letters from the 1960s, and becoming obsessed with unearthing the more engaging main story of Jennifer, a woman struggling with an unexpected relationship that could never be seen as respectable in her social circle at that time. And of course there are a couple of nice twists along the way . . .
