The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes

Expected pub. date in U.S.- 8/20/2013

I have heard wonderful things about Jojo Moyes’ novels such as Me Before You and The Last Love Letter, and I completely understand why.  Moyes just has this ability to have you lost in a beautiful story by her splendid writing.  It is a story about how a french women during World War I, and a women in present day London have intertwined lives.  If you have read Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay, the story structure is very similar to The Girl You Left Behind.  There were times where it was a little slow, but overall it’s a perfect beach read.  After this novel, I am interested in reading her other works.

Overall, it was a great adult novel and I would recommend it to those who enjoyed Sarah’s Key and Cutting For Stone. Great beach read as well as a great book club option.
