The Girl You Left Behind
SummaryJojo Moyes' s bestseller, Me Before You , catapulted her to wide critical acclaim and has struck a chord with readers everywhere. " Hopelessly and hopefully romantic" ( Chicago Tribune ), Moyes returns with another irresistible heartbreaker that asks, " Whatever happened to the girl you left behind?" France, 1916: Artist Edouard Lefevre leaves his young wife, Sophie, to fight at the front. When their small town falls to the Germans in the midst of World War I, Edouard' s portrait of Sophie draws the eye of the new Kommandant. As the officer' s dangerous obsession deepens, Sophie will risk everything-- her family, her reputation, and her life-- to see her husband again. Almost a century later, Sophie' s portrait is given to Liv Halston by her young husband shortly before his sudden death. A chance encounter reveals the painting' s true worth, and a battle begins for who its legitimate owner is-- putting Liv' s belief in what is right to the ultimate test. Like Sarah Blake' s The Postmistress and Tatiana de Rosnay' s Sarah' s Key , The Girl You Left Behind is a breathtaking story of love, loss, and sacrifice told with Moyes' s signature ability to capture our hearts with every turn of the page.
