France, 1916.

While her adored husband Edouard fights on the front, all Sophie has of him is the beautiful portrait he painted for her.

But when the picture catches the eye of the village Kommandant, he cannot keep away from its subject, and Sophie is forced to make a terrible decision . . .

Almost a century later, Sophie's portrait hangs in the home of Liv Halston, a wedding gift from her young husband before he died.

A chance encounter reveals the painting's true worth.

But will its troubled history turn Liv's life upside down all over again?

Good read

Interesting story kept me guessing, would recommend

So glad I didn't give up on this author!

The first of Moyes books I read was Ship of Brides...which I found lacklustre. I nearly turned away from her but read one plus one, which was captivating, if a bit predictable. I am indeed so glad I stuck with her! The Girl is a fabulous book, beautifully crafted and well researched. The tale demands you keep reading until it's finished.

Not many books keep me awake until 4am, this one did. Following a tale of modern love concurrently with love one hundred years in the past, the author creates depth and multiple layers of changing morality. I'm sure book clubs will have a field day comparing the judgemental nature of wartime against contemporary protests and opinion making.

This is the first time I've read a book that clearly showed how the innocent are made complicit in personal immorality during war.

Great characters, well paced story. I'm going to sleep now!
