Product description

Product Description

"I left you something on the nightstand," she said.
"You did? What is it?"
"Just turn over and look," she pleaded.

He turned over to look, hesitantly, not wanting to look away from her. She always seemed to disappear every time he looked away. A manila envelope lay atop the white rustic nightstand and the word "Ryan" that was penned across the front was beckoning him. He glared at the envelope for just a moment before turning back to her. But she was gone.

As Ryan Boone struggles to come to grips with not being able to keep a promise he made to his dying wife, Larkin's Letters propels readers into the mind of Ryan as he struggles with frequent visits from her ghost and a series of letters she leaves behind. Ryan worked hard to become one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors, but no matter how busy or famous he became, he always remained loyal to his childhood best friend, Larkin James. When Larkin is diagnosed with leukemia, Ryan sacrifices his career to be by her side and in turn realizes how much he had always loved her. Throughout Larkin's sickness, Ryan promised that he wouldn't let her die alone. But we learn that not all of our promises are within our control.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read Love Story 13 August 2015
By Lindsay Detwiler - Published on

“Love is home. Love is laughter. Love is an embrace. Love is the foundation of our soul. Love is the engine that keeps us motoring through life’s journey. You’re my love, and you have given me reason to motor on through life as long as I have been able to this past year.”

Larkin’s Letters starts out feeling like a typical, emotional romance but morphs into so much more. It follows the story of Ryan, a famous actor, and his love and loss of Larkin. Ryan and Larkin were best friends their entire lives. Once Larkin is diagnosed with Leukemia, however, their relationship changes. This story really makes you think about how much you take for granted in your life and how strong love can be.

I loved that both Larkin’s and Ryan’s voices shine through in this novel. Larkin’s letters give us insight into her deepest feelings, while the book also focuses on Ryan’s memories of their time together. The transition between the two is seamless, contributing to a deep understanding of the relationship.

I also liked that the relationship was very realistic. It wasn’t a perfect relationship, and there were many problems that Ryan and Larkin faced. I liked that Jillian didn’t focus only on the beautiful moments. I liked that it felt real.

This book is truly an emotional roller coaster. Jillian does a great job at showing a tragic story in a beautiful way, verging on an almost poetic style at times. There are some really nice moments that are strengthened by Jillian’s emotional descriptions.

The only thing that bothered me was that Larkin chose to ignore her family at the end in favor of Ryan. I felt like this was a bit harsh and out of character. Nonetheless, the strength of the story overall and the excellent writing allowed me to overlook this.

If you enjoy a deep, emotional romance, this is the book for you. It focuses on the emotional connection in love, the power of friendship, and the beauty of life. This book will make you think about your loved ones differently and make you appreciate the time you have left. I would describe Jillian as Nicholas Sparks meets Mitch Albom but with a unique flair that it all her own.

5.0 out of 5 stars thoughts on this incredibly beautifully emotional journey of love that is Larkin's letters 8 August 2014
By hello-booklover - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book will shatter you. There are no words to describe it's beauty, love and just how wonderful and amazing the story is. Ryan is soo soo amazing, kind, sweet, beautiful inside and out. and Larkin is gorgeous both inside and out. their story is beautiful, kind, romantic, heart wrenching, wonderful, sad and incredible. Have kleenex at the ready because you will surely need them. It's like a beautiful love song that you wish would go on forever.

Larkin and Ryan were best friends since childhood. they took different life paths but never lost touch with one another. They supported one another, was there for each other no matter what and loved each other so deeply that there wasn't anything they wouldn't give up for each other. they believed in one another and were each others belief and cheering system.

suddenly Larkin becomes ill and there life is put into a tailspin. Ryan sacrifices everything to be with Larkin when she needs him the most. as they are together their feelings change and they realize they love one another. That is not to say obstacles aren't in the way. Abigail and their fears of losing their best friend. but they do come together and are together in such a beautiful soul shattering way. all this is conveyed in letters that Larkin has left for Ryan her best friend and husband after she is succumbed by illness. As ryan gains strength from the letters, he remembers the moments of heaven Larkin talks about and it helps him to heal. I think the most beautiful letters were the last two. One about their renewal of vows and hers on the plane. Also Ryan's letter to her was gut wrenchingly beautiful. This man loved with all his heart and soul.

He can't let go of her because of fear that she is not happy. These letters help in the healing process and show him that Larkin is his angel the letters his wings and pieces of heaven that help him find peace.

Each letter is more beautiful and insightful as the next and will shatter you in a million beautiful different ways. You can feel their love for each other pour off the pages and in the words that are written on the page. Each emotion is felt of theirs and comes alive off the page.

A beautifully haunting love story that is a incredible emotional journey through a series of letters and trying to let go that you feel from the first page to the last. A incredible journey that shouldn't be missed just remember kleenex is needed because you will be touched in ways you never thought possible.

At times this book was hard to read with the years that were in my eyes. Hate that he wasn't there when she died but think it would have been even harder for Ryan. Can't wait to read the next one.
