When I’m Gone by Emily Bleeker

Book Blurb:

Dear Luke,

First let me say—I love you… I didn’t want to leave you…

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.

I think that the Book Blurb describes this book well enough and I will leave it at that.  It’s a sentimental journey through one man’s grief and getting to know his wife in the ways he didn’t know her!  Not really my cup of tea but I did read it quickly and like Luke I wanted to know the mysteries about his wife that he didn’t know.  The problem is that the end didn’t really offer up any great surprises.  I found it a bit predictable.  All-in-all, just an okay read for me.  For those who are a bit more into the touchy-feely type books, you may appreciate it more.

I won this book through a blog contest that was hosted by A Bookaholic Swede.  Check out her blog, you’ll love it!
