Reviews of The Girl You Left Behind

While Liv’s more pedestrian story is less romantic than Sophie’s and far less nuanced, Moyes is a born storyteller who makes it impossible not to care about her heroines.

By the end, “The Girl You Left Behind” had become not just a picture-perfect historical novel, but also a true mystery-thriller. And I no longer cared how many romance novels Ms. Moyes had written.

...The Girl You Left Behind is a compelling exploration of love and the depths to which people will descend to protect that love...More importantly, while Liv’s story is the weaker of the two, it still makes for an amazing story of resilience and the most profound elements of love.

The Girl You Left Behind is a very solid romance novel, and if you are a fan of the genre rest assured that you are going to be getting the complete experience with this one; the way in which haunting and brutal fates are superimposed with heartwarming moments and breathtaking beauty is something that will mark you for a long time to come.
