Loved it! Romance and suspense at the deepest level - you didn't know where you would be taken or where you would end up. The read was beyond my expectations.

Wonderful story! It was engaging, heartwrenching, suspenseful, romantic and tragic all in one. Read this- you won't be sorry...

I'm generally not an historical fiction fan, but I found the parallel between Sophia and Liv's lives compelling. The writing is vivid and at time poetic. Great read!

Outstanding novel. Captivating writing, and characters to care about. Jo Jo Moyes is now a favorite of mine.

I really enjoyed the way the author combined the past and the present in this book, one minute you are reading about WWI and just as you are getting into it, the author switches to the present, at first I was ticked off, because I was so caught up in the past, but it all fit in nicely at the end.

This is an excellent historical fiction account of struggles and hardship in WWI in France (Part 1) interwoven with the struggles of a contemporary woman who has experienced a great loss (Part 2). The common thread is a painting from WWI that is very special to both women. I liked the author's book "Me Before You", but I enjoyed this book much more.

the story is divided into 2 era : the first www and contemporary .
I like her narration and description of the old time , I feel like I'm in the story.

the ending is surprising.
nice alternative to kate Morton.

This book is two books in one. The first half tells the story of Sophie and takes place in France during WWI while the second half tells the story of Liv and takes place in the present day. Though separated by time, these two woman are connected by a painting. This is a heartbreaking, emotional, and engaging book about love and loss. I loved it!
