London 1960 – a woman wakes up from unconsciousness in a hospital, not knowing where she is, how she got there, or who the man is in the chair at her bedside. As she gets her bearings on her surroundings, she realizes she knows who she is, and she can remember bits and pieces of her long past, but her recent memory is gone. Thus begins The Last Letter from Your Lover, a novel which takes the reader on a journey from London to the French Riviera, the conflicts of the Congo to late 1960s New York City, and the twists and turns of unrequited love. I pulled this novel off the shelf because the title grabbed me, and I was not disappointed. A surprisingly quick read that captured my attention and left me considering the complex situations presented, along with the potential conflicts of keeping secrets.
