In 1960, a woman named Jennifer wakes up in a hospital with no memory of who she is after a car accident. She goes home with her wealthy, successful husband, Laurence, but doesn't feel close to him emotionally. What Jennifer discovers is that she had become involved with a man that she loved passionately in the months leading up to her injury--but who is the man and why hasn't he tried to contact Jennifer after her accident? In contemporary London, journalist Ellie is having her own romantic issues because of her involvement with a married writer. When she comes across several old love letters at the newspaper where she works, she decides that she must try and find out who wrote them. In this love story spanning forty years, Moyes creates a emotional tale with such likable characters that you will be quickly turning the pages to find out how it ends and yes, probably even shed a few tears.
