Overview

Through a series of e-mail messages, Letters from Alcatraz invites the reader inside a man's heart and mind. As C.J. comes of age in San Francisco, he meets and falls in love with Diana. Diana is a beautiful young woman who from the tender age of one lived on Alcatraz Island. He spends the following forty years living two separate lives, the life that he shares with Diana; the other life that he fears Diana will find out about someday.


C.J. struggles as he indulges in a lifestyle that is rife with sex, drugs, and rock & roll; a lifestyle that leads to trouble at each and every turn. His other lifestyle, the one he shares with Diana, is what he desperately wants to protect. Over the course of a year, C.J. finally opens up to a complete stranger, sharing his most intimate thoughts and memories as well as his deepest and darkest secrets.


The story that unfolds is brutally honest, compassionate, and heartfelt. As you find yourself rooting for the bad boy, you will also find yourself questioning everything that you thought you knew about emotions and deceit.

    Finished the books "Letters from Alcatraz" and "R

    Finished the books "Letters from Alcatraz" and "Return to Alcatraz" by Tina Tina Marie Westbrook . It's follows a man through letters he wrote to Tina about the sixties on. Back when it was hippies and free love. Not only how he was connected with Alcatraz and history of it but his crossroads in life and living two seperate ones.How he made choices and how he dealt with them . It makes you think of your own choices good or bad and what would you do. Both books were a really good read the books really suprised me it was so different in what I thought I was going to read. It's a must read. You could of knocked me over with a feather,truly shocked and suprised.

    Letters from Alcatraz, Forty years later

    Letters from Alcatraz is taken from a series of email messages from a young man coming of age in San Fransisco, a man leading two lives, one with a troubled past and one of undying love for a woman. The characters, the story and how the author wove it all together made it hard to put down. Letters is a story filled with passion, intrigue and will surely keep the book in your hands until your done. The author left the ending open and I'm sensing a sequel in the works. Letters is a wonderful escape from everyday life and I look forward to the next one from this author.
