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.
I listened to this book on Audible. The narrator was a gentleman (I can't remember his name and I'm too lazy to go look) and he did a good job with the book. It is about Natalie, a wife and mother of 3 children, who dies following a long illness. She reaches out to Luke, her husband, through letters which are delivered to his house following her death. He is assisted through his grief and with the child rearing responsibility by his wife's best friend, Annie, and a college student, Jessie. There are many twists and turns as Luke tries to discover secrets from his wife's past that he was not aware of. The book is funny, sad, happy, and touching. I very much enjoyed listening while I was busy driving kids to and fro and waiting for them to finish their activities. I would highly recommend the book!
