    "A lovely book"

    My first impression of the book was quite wrong. The prologue presaged a story about 30 somethings working in London that didn't appeal. Instead this is a beautifully crafted exploration of the pleasures and pains of love affairs 40 years apart. The two relationships are cleverly intertwined as young journalist, Ellie, investigates a mysterious love letter found in the archives of the newspaper where she works, while at the same time wrestles with her obsessive love of a married man. This is not sugary romantic fiction, but an epic, moving, evocative and memorable book that I highly recommend.
    Julia Franklin is an excellent reader.

    "A compelling tale"

    I really enjoyed this story from the start. It was easy to listen to. At first I thought it was going to be rather obvious and predictable but I loved the way the story unfolded over a long time-scale with a few unexpected twists. Highly recommend.

    "Good story but didn't enjoy the narration."

    Enjoyed the story, it grew on me as it progressed until I completely wasted a half day listening to the last 2-3 hours! However, I hated the narration of the male voices, mainly because their was just one voice for all of the men - making conversations between men difficult to follow. They all (even the modern men) sounded unfeeling, patronising and condescending - that was OK for Laurence, but not for all of the men. Loved the cut glass voice of Jennifer. This is a good story but I would recommend reading rather than listening. It's not nearly as good as 'Me Before You' which I would heartily recommend as an audible book.

    "What a lover! What letters! What lives!!!"

    Spanning 40 years or more this tells a fascinating love story. I had to start listening in the daytime as I wanted to know what happened. There is a lot of sadness but also happiness. I feel this is a must to listen too. Julia Franklin is my favorite narrator as she reads so clearly, words well pronounced, and characters clearly defined in her various voices. It is a book where you are always waiting to see what will happen next. Congratulation Jojo Moyes, now to listen to some of your other books.

    "Touching Love Story"

    I loved this book - a story spanning 40 years using letters and emails to help tell the story. Almost love lost but not quite. I suppose the ending was a bit contrived but I was gripped the whole way through. The story would not work if set in current times but I think it was believable in the time it was set. I also love happy endings!

    "True love can be tough"

    The story is about the true love, with all the romance and the innoncence that comes with it. It reminds us of our 'old days' - for those who are married. The characters will explore feelings such as tenderness, hope and disappointment.

    The narrator is good at expressing all these feelings.

    I recommand.

    "Yet Another Great Novel By Jojo Moyes!"

    A remarkably moving story, spanning several decades and different locations, I thought it was really well written and will be loved by all who enjoy a romantic tale with many twists. Really recommend this one!

    "Another awesome read!"
    What made the experience of listening to Last Letter from Your Lover the most enjoyable?

    The delicacy of the storyline was lovely! Lots of different stories happening at once, but written in such a way that meant that they all tied in beautifully!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I was intrigued from the beginning... A story spanning almost half a century is hard to ignore!


    What does Julia Franklin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Yes. Lovely use of different life stories, different decades and different characters!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I found the male characters a little hard to identify at times...
