What would you do if the love of your life had no memory of you? A man tries to win back the love of his life after an accident has her in a coma in this emotional, romantic drama from #1 ebook phenomenon J. L. Perry writing as Jodi Perry
The 19th of January, 1996 ... I'll never forget it. It was the day we met. I was seven and she was six. It was the day she moved in next door, and the same day I developed my first crush on a girl.
Then tragedy struck. Nineteen days after our wedding day, she was in an accident that would change our lives forever. When she woke from her coma, she had no memory of me, of us, of the love we shared.
That's when I started writing her letters.The stories of our life. Of when we met. About the happier times, and everything we'd experienced together.
What we had was far too beautiful to be forgotten.

This is perhaps my favourite book from Jodi Perry. This was an emotional, breathtaking love story filled with tears, love and hope and is Braxton and Jemma’s story. . I had to stop reading at times as there was so much emotion that I felt overwhelmed, such was the wring of Ms.Perry. Nineteen Letters is one of those books that will remain with me for a long time. Braxton is one of those character’s that you find difficult to describe, his love for Jemma transcends so many levels. When tragedy strikes his beloved Jemma, Braxton finds that she no longer has any memory of their life together or their shared history. Determined to help and remind her of their life, he writes a series of letters showcasing the life that they have built. This was an emotional roller coaster of a read, however one that I wouldn’t have missed for the world; I was riveted from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book and was totally blown away by the talents of Jodi Perry.
On the 19th January 1996 two little children, Jemma and Braxton meet for the first time. After nineteen years knowing that they were soul mates, they married and were well and truly in that honeymoon period. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and nineteen days later it was back to work for the couple. Driving to work in the pouring rain, Jemma is sideswiped and horrifically injured, not only physically, but her brain has been injured too causing her to have amnesia. Upon waking from an induced coma, Jemma doesn’t know anyone including Braxton. But he won’t give up on the love of his life that easily. Over the months Braxton writes Jemma nineteen letters reminding her of their time together. Each letter shares a moment. He also gives her a charm bracelet and a charm with each letter. Can Jemma fall in love with Braxton all over again? Nineteen letters is one of the sweetest books that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It is so beautifully written and realistic too. It gives you butterflies whilst reading and a lump in your throat. It is like being on an emotional roller-coaster. Told in dual perspective Jemma and Braxton are just a delight to get to know. Jemma understandably is scared, worried and anxious. She doesn’t know who anyone is. She doesn’t even remember who she, herself is. That must really be scary to wake up and to have a ‘stranger’ holding your hand, declaring he’s your husband and telling you how much he loves you. The same can be said for Braxton. He is worried and scared too. He loves his wife and will do anything for her. He’s loved her for nineteen years and he’s not giving up on their love now. The only thing he can think of to get her to come back to him is to write letters to her, hoping that they will get her to remember him. This book is moving and uplifting too. The characters are vivid and the tough times that they both were going through were so heartfelt. I was hooked from the beginning and was totally engrossed in finding out whether this perfect couple could once again be together. This is just an adorable story that needs to be read.
What an absolutely breathtaking book. It is an emotional journey of epic love. Reminded me so much of The Notebook by Nicolas Sparks in feels but it was its own unique story. It is heartbreakingly, beautiful the love Braxton has for Jemma as he tries to bring her back to him after she loses her memory. The letters were such a insight into their lives...I couldn’t wait for then next one. The charms adding just another layer to this beautiful story. This book totally captured my heart! Loved it! This was the very essence of a LOVE STORY. There was no over the top moments, no drawn out sexual scenes, this author used words to make you feel the intensity of the love this man had for this woman. Just pure romance. Top favorite 2017!
This book had everything!!! What would you do if you forgot everything in your life? Even your beloved? How would you continue through life? Those are the questions that Jemma and Braxton have to find a way to answer. This was the first book from Ms. Perry that I read; with that being said, I absolutely loved this book. The reader could feel the emotion that the author put into the story. I was devastated for Jemma and heartbroken for Braxton. Such a wonderful story to read. I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Perry.
5 -- “What we had is far too beautiful to be forgotten.” -- stars I have loved every single book Jodi Perry has written so far. I only start them when I know I’ll not be disturbed, because I don’t want to stop reading when I start. It wasn’t any different with this book. Jodi Perry can write whatever she wants and I know I’ll read it. I loved Nineteen Letters so much! It’s sweet, beautiful and touching. Braxton and Jemma became neighbors when they were children and they have been best friends since. They were inseparable. They slowly fall in love with each other, but both of them don’t dare to admit it because their friendship is too precious to them. When Braxton and Jemma do become a couple, they are a strong and solid couple. Both of them can’t imagine a life without the other one in it. They get married. Their love and marriage were suppose to be forever, until Jemma had an accident and she woke up not remembering anything. Braxton doesn’t want to give up on Jemma and their love. He decides to write letters about them and hopes that maybe Jemma will remember something. Jemma is strong, nice, independent and a little lost. She can’t remember anything and everybody is a stranger to her. She isn’t sure what to do, but she fortunately has many people that care about her and will never give up on her. Jemma slowly starts to live again. She also spends more and more time with Braxton. She can understand why her old self fell in love with him and she hopes that her new self will too one day. I love Jemma, but Braxton has my heart. While I can’t imagine what Jemma was going through, I felt for Braxton too. He remembers everything and the love they shared. He wants his wife back, but he knows that there is a possibility that that won’t happen. Braxton is patient, caring, gentle, loyal, passionate and loving. He’s an incredible man! He’s always there for Jemma. There isn’t a thing he won’t do for her. After just the first letter, I couldn’t wait for the next one. I love all the letters that Braxton wrote for Jemma. That man can write! He wrote from the heart. The letters were beautiful and emotional sometimes. They told us about Braxton and Jemma’s pasts. Reading how it all started and progressed, had me rooting even harder for a second chance for Braxton and Jemma or for Jemma to remember something. What they had is truly too beautiful to be forgotten.
Sadly, I’ve never read anything by Ms Perry before, and that has been my loss. Nineteen Letters broke my damn for her words and now I can’t get enough of them. What more can I say than that? What would you do if your wife almost died after just getting married and then when she wakes up from a coma she doesn’t remember or anything about your life together. Walk away? Or fight? Braxton had no doubts he was going to fight to the bitter end before he gave up. His love for Jemma bleed through each painful, painstakingly beautiful letter and page he wrote. This was so different from any story I’ve ever read before, so poignant and yet uplifting too. The heartbreak and then the laughter to sooth the pain, it all just left me feeling, well, it’s hard to explain. Kinda floating on a cloud of aaahs, maybe lol. I loved this book from start to finish and dare anyone to pick it up and read and not love it.Never read anything like it before
