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.

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.

Beautifully written, this not so average love story had me binge-listening, yet again. Loved this book and enjoyed the narrator.
enjoyed the story. it moved quiet quickly though so had to go back several times to keep it clear.
