I really enjoyed reading this book and finished it in two days. I fell in love with their love story from reading Where Men Win Glory by Jon Krakauer and couldn't wait to read Marie's book and hear about her love and life with Pat. I expected a little more about their relationship and time together. I loved Pat's letters to her and wish there were more to read, although I understand those are private letters to Marie. He was clearly head over heels for his wife and his words were refreshing and romantic. As a girlfriend of a soldier I know how much those letters mean. This book was more about Marie learning how to live again after Pats passing. I admire her strength, bravery, and determination to follow Pat's request for her. And I appreciate her willingness to share her experience so open and honestly. I wish her the best and love for her in the future.

Amazing book that makes you look at life from a different perspective.  It's a story of true love and true loss.  It makes you think about what a military really goes thru.  Definitely take the time to read this book!

The Letter is a moving, compassionate and an extremely honest reflection of a couples life, and a wife's ability to overcome fears, shyness, and guilt after her husbands death.

Readers get a perspective that otherwise went without notice. Good reading. Eye opening on numerous accounts.

The story is beautiful, sad, and inspiring. It's much more than that, but my words really wouldn't do it justice. Especially for anyone struggling to deal with loss, I would highly recommend.

4.5 stars A quick read which chronicles Marie Tillman's days and years after the death of her husband, Pat. I, too, read Krakauer's Where Men Win Glory and wondered what the family perspective would be. Because of the title, I'd expected "the letter" to be more of a significant player in the book; however, it ultimately becomes just the right focus. As a former Air Force officer who dealt with mortuary affairs, I saw the anguish of loved ones left behind and wondered what their lives would be like once the military stepped away and life had to go on. Marie tells of hiding away, of trying to stay out of the spotlight but still keep Pat's memory and Foundation going, and of fearing returning to the social and dating scenes. I appreciate Marie's candor and willingness to let us in on her world.
