When journalist Ellie looks through her newspaper's archives for a story, she doesn't think she'll find anything of interest. Instead she discovers a letter from 1960, written by a man asking his lover to leave her husband -- and Ellie is caught up in the intrigue of a past love affair. Despite, or perhaps because of her own romantic entanglements with a married man. In 1960, Jennifer wakes up in hospital after a car accident. She can't remember anything -- her husband, her friends, who she used to be. And then, when she returns home, she uncovers a hidden letter, and begins to remember the lover she was willing to risk everything for. Ellie and Jennifer's stories of passion, adultery and loss are wound together in this richly emotive novel -- interspersed with real 'last letters'.

'Beautifully written ... an exquisite tale of love lost, love found and the power of letter writing.' ***** -- Sunday Express
'An utterly absorbing and blissfully romantic read'
'A gorgeously romantic and partner-ignoringly compulsive read ... Immaculately paced, genuinely touching and stuffed with Mad Men-esque period details, it's a page-turner that loves words themselves.'
Independent on Sunday
'Exciting, moving, intriguing; the atmosphere's perfect, the plotting is masterly, the characters are brilliant'
'I lost myself completely in THE LAST LETTER FROM YOUR LOVER, I totally adored it. Utterly compulsive and swooningly romantic, it's just perfect.'
