Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.
Book: The Girl You Left Behind
by JoJo Moyes
Recommended by: Lois
Captivating and bittersweet, THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND is an incredible story! The parallel narrative that's so popular in historical fiction weaves two stories perfectly. In 1916 Sophie, whose husband is in the battlefield, lives with her family in a German-occupied French village. In 2006 Liv, a young widow who can't stop mourning her husband's sudden death, lives alone in London. Sophie and Liv are linked by one haunting painting, The Girl You Left Behind, Sophie's portrait by her beloved artist husband - and a century later a honeymoon gift to Liv. Get out the tissues and give this book a try. Betrayal, evil, greed and hope wrapped up in one gorgeous, heartbreaking story. I loved it!
