About The Book.
The Legacy Letters reveals to us the rediscovered private letters from a dying father to his children—and his wife. His words of wisdom, interwoven between deeply personal stories and poignantly-told memories, ultimately become the practical, moral, and spiritual guidebook for his children he’d never live to see, and for his wife, his redemptive act of love. The Legacy Letters has won 5 national awards, including the Mom’s Choice Award.
From the Back Cover: “A tragedy begins. A husband and wife separate. He’s dying. She doesn’t know. She’s pregnant. He can’t return. Now he races against time–In the solitude of a mountain cabin. In a faraway mountain range. Trying to finish… For his children–his captivating stories and memories, turned into practical, moral, and spiritual instructions, now their “guidebook to life.” For his wife–his intimate words of great love and deep regret, now his journey of redemption, now her passage to forgiveness. Ultimately, he gives his final gift to her, to them, and now, to us all.”
