About this title

Synopsis:

A hauntingly romantic and utterly irresistible weepy from the author of the international bestsellers Me Before You and After You. What happened to the girl you left behind? France, 1916. Sophie Lefevre must keep her family safe whilst her adored husband Edouard fights at the front. When she is ordered to serve the German officers who descend on her hotel each evening, her home becomes riven by fierce tensions. And from the moment the new Kommandant sets eyes on Sophie's portrait - painted by Edouard - a dangerous obsession is born, which will lead Sophie to make a dark and terrible decision. Almost a century later, and Sophie's portrait hangs in the home of Liv Halston, a wedding gift from her young husband before he died. A chance encounter reveals the painting's true worth, and its troubled history. A history that is about to resurface and turn Liv's life upside down all over again . . . In The Girl You Left Behind two young women, separated by a century, are united in their determination to fight for what they love most - whatever the cost. Praise for The Girl You Left Behind: 'Moyes is the queen of the classy weepy and this won't disappoint. A masterclass in storytelling that fans of Me Before You will adore' Elle 'Another heart-stoppingly brilliant novel from Jojo Moyes' Closer 'Wonderfully well-written and completely engrossing, with exquisitely drawn characters in a brilliantly plotted narrative. It will make you think long after you turn the final page' Daily Mail
