Giveaway! JoJo Moyes' The Girl You Left Behind


The Literary Hoarders are so pleased (and excited) to be able to offer 1 copy of JoJo Moyes’ latest novel The Girl You Left Behind! (US Addresses only please). Viking/Penguin has graciously said one copy will be sent to one lucky winner (randomly chosen) as well!

Jackie and I read and Looooved Me Before You and we also read it for our Wink 3 Book Club and everyone there raved about it. It was a breakthrough hit for JoJo and everyone we’ve recommended it to has loved, loved, loved it!

The Associated Press said, “There are books that you cannot put down. There are also books where you become so invested in the characters, you force yourself to stop reading to prolong the experience because you don’t want the story to end, and that’s what can happen when you read Me Before You.”

So the hardcover of this new one is sitting here staring me in the face just begging me to dive in to it! Knowing how fantastic Me Before You was, and reading this amazing description about it below, I can’t imagine that The Girl You Left Behind won’t become another major fan favourite!

The Girl You Left Behind isn’t on sale until August 20th, so if you comment below, or better yet, Like Us and comment on our Facebook page, you may just have the lucky, lucky chance of reading before it hits the stores!

Jojo Moyes’s bestseller, Me Before You, catapulted her to wide critical acclaim and has struck a chord with readers everywhere. “Hopelessly and hopefully romantic” (Chicago Tribune), Moyes returns with another irresistible heartbreaker that asks, “Whatever happened to the girl you left behind?”

France, 1916:  Artist Edouard Lefevre leaves his young wife, Sophie, to fight at the front. When their small town falls to the Germans in the midst of World War I, Edouard’s portrait of Sophie draws the eye of the new Kommandant. As the officer’s dangerous obsession deepens, Sophie will risk everything—her family, her reputation, and her life—to see her husband again.

Almost a century later, Sophie’s portrait is given to Liv Halston by her young husband shortly before his sudden death. A chance encounter reveals the painting’s true worth, and a battle begins for who its legitimate owner is—putting Liv’s belief in what is right to the ultimate test.

We hope you take advantage of the offer and tell us below (and/or on our Facebook page) why you really, really, really need to be the one to get your hands on JoJo Moyes’ latest! This offer is available until Tuesday, July 30th.
