At the heart of Jojo Moyes’ heartbreaking new novel, The Girl You Left Behind, are two haunting love stories—that of Sophie and Édouard Lefèvre in France during the First World War, and, nearly a century later, Liv Halston and her husband David.HONEYMOON IN PARIS takes place several years before the events to come in The Girl You Left Behind when both couples have just married. Sophie is swept up in the glamor of Belle Époque Paris but discovers that loving a celebrated artist like Édouard Lefèvre brings undreamt of complications. Following in Sophie's footsteps a hundred years later, Liv, after a whirlwind romance, finds her Parisian honeymoon is not quite the romantic getaway she had been hoping for.
A prequel to The Girl You Left Behind, Honeymoon in Paris is a poignant story of two young brides- one in 2012 Paris andone in 1912 Paris who begin to have second thoughts about their new marriages.. The characters were so real and I felt so much for them that it made me want to slap their husbands upside the head . I look forward to the sequel to see is slapping ensues.
