The Legacy Letters Book Review


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.

My Thoughts:  In a nutshell, The Legacy Letters is a series of letters written from a dying father to his children.  It's a beautiful story and evoked many emotions.  As I read the book I reminisced about my father-in-law who passed away years before Hubby and I married.  I recall him as a wonderful man with a gracious smile and a kind demeanor. Although my children never met their grandfather, they love hearing stories about him and often ask what he was like.  I often wonder what tidbits of wisdom he would've shared with our children.

The Legacy Letters is thoughtfully written.  The Legacy Letters is not a book you read fast, it's more of a book to be savored slowly to really appreciate the story.  However, if you're like me you will find yourself emotionally wrapped up in Papritz's story.  Overall a really good read.
