What I enjoyed most about Nine Letters is watching Luke work through his grief, with his beloved ones. Even his new friends wants the best form him. They don't want him moping around. They want him to get well and continue life. I enjoyed watching both Luke and Rae move on together, even though they have both lived through some tough times. Watching Luke heal and opening his heart to love again is so worth reading this story.
The story within Nine Letter is great. It's about giving life a second chance. It's amazing reading how one man goes from loosing his loved one, to watching the days pass by to eventually opening to new adventures. I loved how his wife knew him so well. She knew she had to leave letters to help him get there, even after she was gone. This is what true love is all about. An unconditional love. It's a very soul-touching, heartbreaking yet heartwarming story that everyone should read.
