Luke Richardson has returned home after burying Natalie, his beloved wife of sixteen years, ready to face the hard job of raising their three children alone. But there's something he's not prepared for--a blue envelope with his name scrawled across the front in Natalie's handwriting, waiting for him on the floor of their suburban Michigan home. The letter inside, written on the first day of Natalie's cancer treatment a year ago, turns out to be the first of many. Luke is convinced they're genuine, but who is delivering them? As his obsession with the letters grows, Luke uncovers long-buried secrets that make him question everything he knew about his wife and their family. But the revelations also point the way toward a future where love goes on--in written words, in memories, and in the promises it's never too late to keep.

In the beginning, the book deals with a husband's grief after losing his wife to cancer. It quickly turns into a type of detective story. It seems he gets over his grief pretty quickly as he starts getting the hots for the neighbor about 6 months after is wife died. Everything ends happy, for him, the kids, the neighbor, etc. A little too big of a bow tied at the end
