Book Review of “The Girl You Left Behind”

“The Girl You Left Behind” by JoJo Moyes traveled time of 100 years.  Sophie Lefevre suffered many hardships during the German occupation of her French village during WWI.  The hardest one was not knowing if her artist husband was dead or alive.  The one thing she would not allow the Germans to take was a portrait he painted of her.  Yet, how did it become the center of a legal fight over stolen property 100 years later?
