This story set in the small town of Woodstock, Virginia challenges us all to become better individuals that we are today.

The letters were sometimes details of his day and other times words of deep love or sorrow.
The book begins on the night of their death. Jack writes his last letter shortly after his beloved Laurel died and he joined her in his sleep. Their three children were brought together to say their final goodbyes. They came across their father's letters and found out that everything wasn't as it seemed and their world was turned upside down.

An excellent read that I enjoyed and highly recommend. The journey of these fictional characters, if we open our hearts and minds, can inspire us to share our time, memories and love with those who are important to us.
