“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”
