Joan why do people worry about the sexual content but not the violence? Who are Edouard's decendants?? The book doesn't mention he and Sophie having children, nor him remarrying. And if I remember correctly - this is when I dislike the kindle, when I want to find something! Certainly all the reviews and summaries use the word descendants, not relatives.
This was a huge, gaping whole for me. Jessica Andersen I was under the impression they were nephews or maybe even related from someone before Sophie.

The Girl I Left Behind Me | Neil Bartlett & Jessica Walker
Sort order. I'm probably done with this author. 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 I'm probably done with this author. Liv and Paul never felt fleshed out. Plus, that danged trial was ridiculously long and extremely contrived. I thought it would never end and did not care how it ended as long as it ended. I was sick of the painting and all of the characters by the end. MCafferty, is there's a whole lot more to life than winning. That's not a revelation worth driving home. Me Before You was written by this author in Now this one in She needed to take more time with this one.
I think she needs to hire an aggressive editor and pare her stories to their essential cores. But then, she didn't really ask me for my opinion. View all 59 comments.

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 ev "It was never about the painting, Sophie.
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 everything was set in motion , and I could only give their portion of the story 2 stars at best. Even with the Paul and Liv legal battle being drawn out for far too long, I am still happily loving so much about this book.

I am glad that I read it. Jojo Moyes is an author who knows how to draw emotion out of a reader. Part I : - Sophie's husband has been captured and moved to a prison camp. The most precious thing she has to remember him by is a painting that he created in her likeness, titled The Girl You Left Behind. This painting is so captivating, that it seems to enchant everyone who looks at it, including the Kommandant who is holding Sophie hostage.
The painting sets in motion a series of events which has Sophie bartering the things that are most precious to her for one chance to see her husband again. Are you going to call me a whore too? Helene looked at her feet. Through a series of unlikely circumstances, she learns to care for a man named Paul, who also has an unusual interest in the painting. Will these lovers-turned-opponents find a way to settle their differences, or will the painting destroy both of their lives?
Just for one evening? The heartbreaking and intense life of this couple separated by war truly deserved more attention than their story got. Sophie : But I refuse to take it down, no matter what Helene says. It reminds me of you, and of a time when we were happy together. It reminds me that humankind is capable of love and beauty as well as destruction. Edouard : The men here clutch photographs of their loved ones like talismans, protection against the dark - crumpled, dirty images endowed with the properties of treasure.
