    1. I'm probably done with this author. The storyline about Sophie and Eduoard during WWI kept me interested. The details and complications of the German Occupation seemed realistic and were thought provoking. The painting of Sophie deeply affected all who viewed it and I liked the way it linked the two plots. Sophie's persistent bravery in the face of harsh circumstances and pure evil was pretty darn amazing.Here's the rub. That second modern day storyline just didn't cut it for me. Liv and Paul ne [...]


    2. "It was never about the painting, Sophie."And there it was, confirmation of my fate.3.25 stars. I loved so many things about this book, especially the historical story of Sophie and her Edouard. Their legacy was worth at least 4 and a half stars. Unfortunately, I felt the modern day story of Liv and Paul to have floundered on for such a lengthy amount of time that it almost took the focus away from the girl in the painting (who was in my opinion the star of the book and the reason for why everyt [...]


    3. Se puede decir que estoy sin palabras! Sin respiración! No hace muchos días una compañera de GR me dijo que Jojo Moyes era una apuesta segura, y qué razón tenía. Es, son, dos historias tan fascinantes, duras y trágicas que ufff! Sin lugar a dudas, una de las mejores novelas que he leído este año :)


    4. This is an astonishing novel which beautifully connects present and past in a tale of war and love.The Girl You Left Behind has a dual time-frame narrative; the first part is seen through the eyes of a woman in occupied France in 1916, the second through one living in modern day London. I'm not generally a fan of historical literature, particularly one with a war setting, so I was slightly reluctant at the start of this novel. However, any doubts I had were washed away mere minutes after picking [...]


    5. ::: FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED :::: So I’m going to be honest and say that I’m rather shocked that a) I read this, and b) I really liked it! This was a completely random book choice for me. Prior to yesterday, it wasn’t even on my reading radar. But when I read the blurb, I was intrigued by the dual storyline and decided to try a few pages… and then, even though on so many levels it’s just not my kind of book, I read it straight through to the very end!It helped that another one of this au [...]


    6. *****5 stars!*****I'm so glad that I'm stingy with 5 star ratings so that I can save them for when I really mean it!The Girl You Left Behind is the story of Sophie Lefevre who is living in occupied France 1916, and Liv Halston who lives in modern day London 2006. These two women are connected by a painting, a portrait of Sophie painted by her husband Edouard, called "The Girl You Left Behind". This was quite a story, and I honestly think Jojo Moyes is in a class all her own for pulling it off. S [...]


    7. This is quite a borderline great book, with its talented author, and detailed characters, all making for a read never restrained by the tag 'chick lit' it carries. The story encompasses the overlapping of history and geography.It's not unlike a Jeffrey Archer book. But while Archer can only do so much, and has recourse of deaths to drum up drama, this book can do all of that without resorting to ultimate means. Here the deaths are few and pack a mean punch to the gut when they occur.'The Girl Yo [...]


    8. 5 stars I wasn't planning on writing a review for this book I thought my 5 star rating spoke for itself. But its been 9 days since I read this and I can't get this book out of my head. I love JoJo's writing. This is my favourite of hers to date (out of the 4 books I have read). BTW I love the way this book ended.Recommend for those who enjoyWorld war romance/slight historicalHeartacheSome JoJo humour2 strong heroines told from past/present


    9. برام قابل درک نیست که یه نفر بخواد این کتاب رو داوطلبانه بخونه و ازش لذت ببره، بدترین کتابیه که تا حالا خوندم.داستان به طرز افتضاحی ضعیفه، قسمت هایی که مربوط به فرانسه س به حدی وحشتناک اشتباه دارن که تقریبا مطمئنم نویسنده فقط براساس چیزهایی که شنیده اونا رو نوشته:| یه سرچ میزد [...]


    10. Hola, resaca lectora más insoportable de mi vida y sensación de "jamás encontraré un libro que me guste tanto como este". Qué bonito, qué intenso y qué todo. Perfecto.


    11. It’s WWI and Sophie’s husband (painter Edouard) has left to fight in the war. Sophie moves back to her family’s hotel during his absence, which has now been occupied by the Germans. In an effort to maintain some semblance of normalcy, Sophie has kept a portrait of herself, painted by Edouard, hanging on the hotel wall and the local Kommandant has found himself drawn to it. Sophie will offer everything she has to become this woman once again for the Kommandant in hopes of reuniting with her [...]


    12. Heerlijke feelgood roman. vakantie leesvoer!Het verhaal behelst twee liefdesverhalenspelend in WOI en in het hedent als verbindende factor het schilderij van Sophie. Het verhaal is goed geschreven en leest lekker weg.erhet laat geen blijvende indruk achter.



    13. Ese momento… cuando SOBRAN LAS PALABRAS.❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤


    14. Jojo eres fantástica. La novela también lo es.(Fin de la reseña. Para más información pasad por los tropecientos blogs que han recibido la novela gratis).


    15. This feels like a particularly apt moment to say that I abandoned this book as part of my no-books-featuring-romantic-relationships-with-Nazis policy.Can you believe that it's 2017 and this is the third time I've had to disavow Nazis this goddamn week?Anyway. This isn't a review of twenty-first century America, so I'll move on. (But don't you kinda wish it was? Not even a little? Got it.)After I really loved Me Before You, I a) immediately fell into a slump and b) attempted to remedy said slump [...]


    16. Αυτό το βιβλίο μου άρεσε ανέλπιστα πολύ. Και λέω «ανέλπιστα» γιατί αυτό το είδος έχω την τάση αργά ή γρήγορα να το βαριέμαι. Το συγκεκριμένο όμως με κέρδισε από τις πρώτες του σελίδες. Όταν έπεσε το βλέμμα μου στην πρώτη του σελίδα, όταν το έπιασα για ένα απλό ξεφύλλισμα χωρί [...]


    17. This was totally unexpected. After reading Me Before You, I was all geared up to have my emotions raked across the rocks (in a good way), and this wasn't that. It wasn't a bad story, but it's always difficult to readjust expectations.Sophie is an artist's wife living in occupied France. On the wall of her hotel hangs a portrait of her, painted by her husband. It's daring and sexy in a way Sophie struggles to see herself and it catches the eye of the Kommandant who craves Sophie. When she discove [...]


    18. An outstanding narrator added extra appeal to this already excellent book. Male to female, French/German accents were very, very good. Two timelines joined together by a painting done in war time, and the struggle to find its rightful owner in the new millennium.Historical fiction is not my genre of choice, therefore I did enjoy the latter current day story more, but as a whole, I did enjoy this novel. Jojo Moyes is an author of talent and I look forward to getting to all of her books at some st [...]


    19. OMG. I have no words. perfection. Okay so i'm still crying and this review might suck but here we go I loved loved loved this book!!! I love all things old and historic,so reading about World War I,and France, was really such a blissful thing to do. The first war hasn't got that much publicity as much as the second world war,so it was interesting reading about it (i kept thinking of Downton Abbey xD ). The scenery,circumstances and characters were built so carefully. Sophie and Liv both were not [...]


    20. Un libro maravilloso!!!Tan increíble que me dejo en shock!¡JOJO MOYES LO HA VUELTO A HACER!El libro tiene dos historias y se dividen en dos partes. La primera parte del libro es la historia de Sophie en el año 1916, es una historial desgarradora. La narración es en primera persona por Sophie, lo cual es excelente, lo que hemos leído a Jojo sabemos que su pluma es exquisita, el ritmo que es muy bueno por lo que la autora consigue meterte entre las páginas desde el principio y que no puedes [...]


    21. "The Girl You Left Behind" is Jojo Moyes's follow-up to "Me Before You" and packs just as much emotional punch. The book is separated into two parts, the storylines taking place almost one hundred years apart. The first involves, young Sophie, wife of French artist, Edouard Lefevre, fighting at the front lines in World War I. Sophie, her sister Helene, Helene's two young children, and their teenage brother Aurelien are living in a town under German occupation. When the newly appointed Kommandant [...]


    22. After reading Moyes novella, Honeymoon in Paris, preceding this novel, I couldn't wait to see how the characters lives played out in this engaging novel and I wasn't disappointed. Part One takes place in France during the first world ware story of Sophie and Edouard was so fascinating that I was thrown for a loop when in Part Two the characters totally changed and the time became 2006. Once I adjusted, I realized that this was also an extension from her novella and I was sucked right back in. I [...]



    23. Brillante manera de comenzar una relación con Jojo Moyes. La Chica que dejaste Atrás, una historia que se lee a dos tiempos. Intensa, triste, Esperanzadora, hermosa!. He conocido a dos luchadoras: a Sophie, que me ha enseñado que el Amor es la base de la Esperanza y a Liv, que me ha enseñado que la Esperanza es lo último que se pierde, cuando se lucha por lo que uno quiere. Estas dos me han mantenido pegada a sus páginas sintiéndolo todo muy real, por esto me quedo encantada de conocerte [...]


    24. Una vez mas un libro de esta autora me abduce de principio a fin y consigue enamorarme, amo como escribe, hace que sea tan ameno leer, tan llevadero que me pasa que no quiero que se termine nunca el libro. Me encanto!!!!Ame y sufrí como loca con las historias de Sophie y Liv, llegando al final casi que ya estaba desesperada por ambas, pero por suerte y de una forma inesperada todo se soluciona y yo pude volver a leer y respirar al mismo tiempo, jajaj, soy exagerada, pero es que realmente ya me [...]


    25. Una novela que me ha cautivado. Jojo escribe que es una maravilla, y yo solo había leído hasta la fecha un libro suyo, no tengo perdón. Hace unas horas que he acabado la historia y todavía tengo presentes a Sophie, admirable, y a Liv, y como ha tejido una trama tan perfecta Jojo.


    26. Another great read by Jojo Moyes. She sure knows how to write a powerful story, all the while weaving in polarizing topics, and different topic strands & well developed characters. Most of her protagonists feel like good friends by the end of the book.The Girl You Left Behind is actually a painting with an unresolved past. Two stories interweave telling us what happened to both women and how this single portrait of Sophie Lefevre impacted so many lives.Sophie Lefevre, a hotel owner, ends up [...]


    27. 3.5 Moyes is very good at creating dilemmas and very real people who have to deal with them. In this book it is the Germans in 1916, taking over their little French town, and deciding to have Sophie cook for the Kommandant and his men. Of course she really has no choice in the matter, she is hoping to stay alive and protect her family, so that when her husband Eduard returns, they are all still alive. How much would one do to keep their family safe, to protect them and hopefully save them. That [...]


    28. Once again, Jojo Moyes has written an amazing book that entwines two lives, two eras and that went straight to my heart. From the very first page, I was captivated and I quickly fell in love with the main character, Sophie. I love how Jojo Moyes allows for the reader to follow Sophie and her story for about 1/3 of the book before we move on to modern time and to Liv. As I said, this book deals with two time periods and it does so beautifully. We get to know the two main characters thoroughly, an [...]
