The Last Letter from Your Lover
Pamela Dorman Books
July 7, 2011
Jennifer's initial discovery of the letter sets into motion a whole series of events that take place over many years - even decades.
The Last Letter from Your Lover is quite an epic love story that has a lot of back and forth in time periods in the beginning - it can get confusing if you don't pay attention to the dates on the headings. The two main characters are also kept apart a lot but its their separation that grows their relationship and the book.
In the latter section of the book, new characters - one central and some secondary - are added to the story. They help to advance the original story line.
It's a difficult story to summarize, but the way it spans so much time and uses things relevant to the time period (both gender wise and other things I wouldn't have thought of) as well as making things difficult for extra-marital affairs, both for logistically and psychologically on those involved is fantastic.
The Last Letter from Your Lover is a book I picked up while looking for potential books to buy people for Christmas and it was an enjoyable read. I'm not sure it's a book that will stay with your or has any scenes that will stick in your head, but it's definitely worth a read - and one that I'm recommending.
