Giveaway: The Girl You Left Behind

August 16, 2013

The Girl You Left Behind

I’m sure most people have heard about JoJo Moyes after the success of her last book, You Before Me, so I’m thrilled that the great folks at Penguin are allowing me to give away a copy of her new book, The Girl You Left Behind, which will be published next week.

About the book:

From the New York Times–bestselling author of Me Before You, a spellbinding love story of two women separated by a century but united in their determination to fight for what they love most

Jojo Moyes’s bestseller, Me Before You, catapulted her to wide critical acclaim and has struck a chord with readers everywhere. “Hopelessly and hopefully romantic” (Chicago Tribune), Moyes returns with another irresistible heartbreaker that asks, “Whatever happened to the girl you left behind?”

France, 1916:  Artist Edouard Lefevre leaves his young wife, Sophie, to fight at the front. When their small town falls to the Germans in the midst of World War I, Edouard’s portrait of Sophie draws the eye of the new Kommandant. As the officer’s dangerous obsession deepens, Sophie will risk everything—her family, her reputation, and her life—to see her husband again.

Almost a century later, Sophie’s portrait is given to Liv Halston by her young husband shortly before his sudden death. A chance encounter reveals the painting’s true worth, and a battle begins for who its legitimate owner is—putting Liv’s belief in what is right to the ultimate test.

Like Sarah Blake’s The Postmistress and Tatiana de Rosnay’s Sarah’s Key, The Girl You Left Behind is a breathtaking story of love, loss, and sacrifice told with Moyes’s signature ability to capture our hearts with every turn of the page.

To enter to win a copy of THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND, by JoJo Moyes, simply fill out the entry form.  Contest is open to those with a US address only (no P.O. Boxes)  – one entry per person, please.  I will use to determine the winner. Contest ends at midnight EDT Wednesday, August 28, 2013.    Comments are welcome (and appreciated) but will not get you an entry in the contest.

    Our book club just read Me Before You and had lots to discuss. I’ve also read The Last Letter You Leave Your Lover ~ Moyes is definitely a romantic!

    Thanks for your giveaway. It is the perfect time of year to read a good book out on the front porch with ceiling fans blowing. Good “escape” in a good book weather. 🙂
