The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes

France, 1916: Artist Edouard Lefevre leaves his young wife, Sophie, to fight at the front. When their small town falls to the Germans in the midst of World War I, Edouard’s portrait of Sophie draws the eye of the new Kommandant. As the officer’s dangerous obsession deepens, Sophie will risk everything --- her family, her reputation, and her life --- to see her husband again.

    Thanks for welcoming me to the group. It was fun to discuss something ... even if it is easiest to say what you didn't like about the book first! :-) I am not sure I would rush out to get another book from this author, but I was glad that someone introduced me to the book!
