Once it is done, it cannot be undone...

The Girl You Left Behind

The Girl You Left Behind

 By: Jojo Moyes

Genre: fiction

Pages: 516

Published: 2012

Read: August

5 out of 5 stars 

A fight over a painting that could financial cost Liv Halston her life, is the premise of this story. Honestly, it didn’t sound too exciting to me and I was unsure if this Moyes’ story would hold my attention. I was completely wrong and blown away by this novel. Moyes, once again intertwines two centuries into one elegant story…all about a lost piece of history and the survival of a girl.  Dating back to World War I, Sophia gives herself up to the Germans to find her lost husband, while a century later Liv is fighting for a priceless painting of Sophia. This story will take you on a journey through time as you began a relationship with these two astonishing and strong women.  This is the third Moyes’ novel I have read this year and I absolutely recommend all three.
