“At once humorous and heart-rending . . . The evocative style of Luanne Rice meshes splendidly with Joseph Monninger’s in a moving collaboration [that] brilliantly illuminates the precious value of relationships.”—Wichita Falls Times Record News   “For those who love and those who hope to love again.”—Lincoln Journal Star   Sam and Hadley West are both trying to survive a shared, unthinkable loss. For Sam, a sports journalist, acceptance means an arduous trek by dogsled across the Alaskan wilderness. For Hadley, it means renting a benignly haunted, salt-soaked cottage off the Maine coast, where she begins to paint again. Waiting for their divorce to be finalized, they begin to exchange letters, filled with longing and truths they’ve never before voiced, as they recall their marriage—its magic moments and its challenges—and rediscover the reason they fell in love in the first place.   In this remarkable collaboration, acclaimed writers Luanne Rice and Joseph Monninger combine their unique talents to create, through a series of searching, intimate letters, a powerful novel of an estranged husband and wife—and the moment that changed the course of their lives forever.   “It’s hard for the reader to remember that she is reading fiction and not eavesdropping on personal correspondence. . . . A journey of discovery that celebrates the beauty of letter writing, an art fast disappearing.”—Booklist   “Exquisite . . . a story of hope, healing and possibilities.”—Concord Monitor

I feel books find us when we need them, I do. I feel this way about "The Letters, A Novel" by Luanne Rice and Joseph Monninger.

A married couple separates after their son dies in a remote plane crash in Alaska. The husband Sam deals with is grief by taking a rugged trip to the plane crash site by Alaskan Husky Dog sled team.

Hadley, A painter that is struggling with her grief moves north to a cottage on the east coast and re-discovers her love of painting. She also is beating her urge to drink to drown out the grief.

Grief? If you haven't truly experienced it, it's unlike depression. Think more like a heavy fog that sits on your shoulders and pulls you under and keeps your skin feeling like it's been pricked a thousand times with pain and then you realize, yes, you still have to go on and keep living in the real world without the person you just lost to death...
Hadley and Sam are conquering these demons. They are writing letters back and forth because that is their way to communicate in this rugged out back and snowy blizzard of Alaska.

They lost their beloved, Paul. They relive their memories of him and their marriage. And, while the husband is tracking with the dogs to the plane site you an truly visualize the loneliness Hadley must feel in her cottage right off the coast of the icy Atlantic.

The corresponding through letters lets them reveal deeper layers of themselves like they once were before their life was torn upside down by the son's death.
As the pages turn, the story deepen as Sam edges closer to the plane wreckage. An ex-girlfriend of Paul show's up with more information that keeps adding more layers and textures to the story of their son.

I guess this is full of spoilers here, so I must mark that, but if you love a good love story with an excellent plot and with visually aesthetic scenery, this book is one for the movies. It beats Brigdes of Madison County and I recommend you buy it for your next read...If you can read it this winter. I will do the same.

I picked this book up out of the discount box at a big chain book store. I couldn't put it down. It is a great book. The plot is interesting and unique. The story is not fully revealed until the last page. The pacing is good, but slow compared to an action story. I would not recommend this book to a young person, but I would recommend it to any adult.

Really enjoyed this read. It was different and emotional at points. The author really hooked me with the story and I couldn't put it down. Thank you, great book.

This was different from anything I have read by Luanne Rice. It took me quite awhile to really get interested in the story (conversation). Once I was into the story, I was curious as to how this couple would end up.

I read The Letters by Luanne Rice and Josoeph Monninger more than a year ago and the story and characters remain with me. A haunting story of a couple that's lost their only son to a plane crash in the Alaskan Wilderness. The couple seperates, as many do with the loss of a child, but they write letters to each other in alternating chapters of the novel. The voices of Rice and Monninger are exquisite. The environmetal settings are rich in detail and the emotions ring true from the first page to the last. This collaboration by two excellent authors is definitely a five star read.

I have loved all of Luanne Rice's past books but this one just did not cut it. I was bored from the beginning. The story line was quite disjointed making it difficult to connect with the characters and find them believable. It was obvious that 2 people wrote this book. The main characters who were married for 20 years or more are now separated and on the verge of a divorce seem to not know each other at all. Its like two strangers are writing letters to each other and are trying to convince the reader that they were married. Odd. Dont waste money buying the book. If tempted, borrow from your local library. You'll be glad that you did!
It is amazing how much you learn about these 2 people through the letters they write each other. You feel their pain, their confusion, their anger in every word they write.
