The Girl You Left Behind
The book starts out as the story of Sophie and her artist husband Edouard Lefevre being separated when Edouard goes off to fight in World War I. He leaves her with a beautiful portrait of herself. The focus of the book then shifts to what happened to the painting. We find it almost a century later in the home of Liv Halston. When the Lefevre family claims the painting was stolen by the Germans in WWI and want it returned to the Lefevre family as restitution, the story becomes a real page turner.
