Publisher's Summary

A sophisticated, pause-resistant double love story spanning 40 years - an unforgettable Brief Encounter for our times.
It is 1960. When Jennifer Stirling wakes up in the hospital, she can remember nothing - not the tragic car accident that put her there, not her husband, not even who she is. She feels like a stranger in her own life until she stumbles upon an impassioned letter, signed simply "B", asking her to leave her husband.
Years later, in 2003, a journalist named Ellie discovers the same enigmatic letter in a forgotten file in her newspaper's archives. She becomes obsessed by the story and hopeful that it can resurrect her faltering career. Perhaps if these lovers had a happy ending, she will find one to her own complicated love life, too. Ellie's search will rewrite history and help her see the truth about her own modern romance.
A spellbinding, intoxicating love story with a knockout ending, The Last Letter from Your Lover will appeal to the readers and listeners who have made One Day and The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society best sellers.

Tempted to google characters, as if they were real

If you could sum up The Last Letter from Your Lover in three words, what would they be?

Poignant. Delicate. Timeless.

What other book might you compare The Last Letter from Your Lover to and why?

Romeo and Juliet... a story that captures what just a few minutes and poor communication can do. The charm of the story is realizing that in 1960, without cell phones, text messages and e-mail, how easy it was to miss the love of your life by mere moments.

Have you listened to any of Susan Lyons’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She does a beautiful job. I love her voice and thinks she captures the emotion of each character well without adopting strange affected voices for each one.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, but I don't want to ruin the story by telling you what it was... sorry.

Any additional comments?

I noticed several hitches in the editing where natural breaks were skipped. It didn't take away from the story, but I expect better quality.
