Goodreads: Dear Luke,First let me say—I love you…I didn’t want to leave you.…

Luke Richardson has returned home after burying Natalie, his beloved wife of sixteen years, ready to face the hard job of raising their three children alone. But there’s something he’s not prepared for—a blue envelope with his name scrawled across the front in Natalie’s handwriting, waiting for him on the floor of their suburban Michigan home.

The letter inside, written on the first day of Natalie’s cancer treatment a year ago, turns out to be the first of many. Luke is convinced they’re genuine, but who is delivering them? As his obsession with the letters grows, Luke uncovers long-buried secrets that make him question everything he knew about his wife and their family. But the revelations also point the way toward a future where love goes on—in written words, in memories, and in the promises it’s never too late to keep.

Ope’s Opinion:  Read this book!!  It is so good!  There are more twists and turn then I have ever read in a book, but they were believable. The characters are amazing.  You can feel what they are feeling.  This book was put under Fiction and Romance.  It is both of those, but I would also put in the Mystery category.  

What a ride this book took me on.  I did not want to put this book down.  I finished while on an  airplane.  When I was done, I wanted to be able to talk to my daughter about it – it was frustrating to be on the plane at that point.  As soon I got off the plane I called her and said OMG! about three times.  We both thought it was a great book!

The ending left me wanting to know where everyone is now. I think I need a sequel.
