Review by DubaiReader
Disappointing after 'Me Before You',Maybe it was because I thought her previous book, Me Before You, was so brilliant, that I found this one a bit lacking. I'll admit to even getting a bit bored in the middle.Jennifer Stirling wakes up in hospital with no memory of who she is or how she got there. It takes a while for reality to penetrate her brain but still a large percentage of her memory seems to be missing. She doesn't fancy her husband or recognise her maid. Her friends are strangers who she must get to know again. Then she finds a love letter, signed, simply, 'B'. It is beautifully written but she has no idea by whom.More than 40 years later, struggling journalist, Ellie Howarth, comes across letters from 'B' to Jennifer in the archives of the library of the National library which is relocating to new premesis. She is gripped by the language of love and decides to follow up the letters and write a feature for the paper. She is struggling with her own relationships and longs for the romance that she finds missing from her own life.There are various twists and turns, but you'll have to read it yourself to find out if it has a happy ending.I was a bit baffled by the love letters quoted throughout the book, that seemed to bear no relationship to the main story. I found them irritating, but this may be because I listened to this as an unabridged audiobook and maybe they were inserts between chapters - which was not evident as an audio version.An easy listen while I sewed my daughter's wedding dress but not as good as I had hoped.Recommended for lovers of chick-lit.
