“The Last Letter is a haunting, heartbreaking and ultimately inspirational love story.“—InTouch Weekly
If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have.
I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride.
My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.
And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.
So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.
Please don’t make her go through it alone.
It’s that bittersweet messy thing we call life
A good purge with sunshine in between the bad. Enjoyed reading immensely.
Seriously? We could leave the last chapter or two out?
I completely understand not all stories can have a happy ending and something the happy endings in books are a little cheesy… but this poor woman lost every single person in her family, her 5 year old child gets sick, survives and she gets everything she wants… why not end it there? Why randomly have her other 5 year old fall off a cliff and die? I’m sorry but the first 95% of the book was amazing and heartfelt and beautiful, but the ending was completely unnecessary and ruined the book for me. I am a chronic re-reader and even if I lived the rest I will not read this again for the sole fact the ending was added solely to shock the audience.
Might want to buckle up!
I rarely write reviews, but wow, this one got me! Could not put this down, even when I knew it was about to rip my heart to pieces!
I loved every part of this story. The love and the tragedy. The roller coaster! Cruelly well-written. Get a box of Kleenex. Or two. Heck, grab the tequila. You’ll need it all!
