We fell in love with Jojo Moyes’ witty, humorous and unashamedly romantic writing when Me Before You hit bookshelves in 2012.
And, luckily for fans, the big screen adaptation didn’t disappoint, with Emilia Clarke and Sam Caflin bringing the much-loved characters of Lou and Will to life wonderfully.
But before Me Before You, there was The Last Letter From Your Lover, Jojo’s 2010 novel, which tells the tale of a journalist who discovers a trove of secret love letters, dating back to the 1960s.
The book’s sold a huge three million copies since its release and fans of the novel will be pleased to hear that a film adaptation is now in the works, with filming just about to begin in Mallorca. The film is set between London and the Riviera.
