The Last Letter Author:Rebecca Yarros Beckett, — If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have. — I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride. — My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She&rsquo... more »;s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.
And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.
So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.
Rebecca Yarros was a new author for me but she certainly didn't disappoint. After reading this book, I know she is a very gifted writer especially when she wrote this in just three weeks! A true to life romance--sometimes good things happen, sometimes bad things happen. The characters are well defined as you hear from both of them as the story progresses so you really get to know them and what makes them tick. I really could not put the book down for long. I read this 450 page book in less than 24 hours. I had to find out how the story ended. I believe it is one of the best romances I have read in a while. Warning: Keep a box of tissues handy. This original story is a real tearjecker but will also make you smile too.
