“Sophie LeFevre's husband was sent off to fight in World War I, leaving her with only a portrait he'd painted of her, a portrait that drew the eye of the Kommandant. 90 years later, that portrait, titled The Girl You Left Behind, hangs in Liv Halston's house, a wedding gift from her late husband. When descendants of the artist claim ownership of the painting and demand restitution, Liv's life becomes a battle, both legal and emotional, as she fights to keep Sophie's portrait and find out everything she can about Sophie herself and what happened to her, feeling somehow as though it can help Liv figure out where her own life is going. This book is just as character-driven as Me Before You, with an interesting historical focus. -Melissa Oates, Fiction Addiction”

Description

From the author of Me Before You and Still Me, a sweeping bestseller of love and loss, deftly weaving two journeys from World War I France to present day London.

Paris, World War I. Sophie Lef vre must keep her family safe while her adored husband, douard, fights at the front. When their town falls to the Germans, Sophie is forced to serve them every evening at her hotel. From the moment the new Kommandant sets eyes on Sophie's portrait--painted by her artist husband--a dangerous obsession is born.

Almost a century later in London, Sophie's portrait hangs in the home of Liv Halston, a wedding gift from her young husband before his sudden death. After a chance encounter reveals the portrait's true worth, a battle begins over its troubled history and Liv's world is turned upside all over again.
