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.

A Excellent Audio!
I definitely would listen to this story again. Both the reader and the story as well as the characters kept me interested.
It was a wonderful love story and who can resist a story when the characters of lost love re-connect in the end.
Definitely worth your time!

Tempted to google characters, as if they were real
Poignant. Delicate. Timeless.
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.
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.
Yes, but I don't want to ruin the story by telling you what it was... sorry.
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.
