Larkin's Letters by Jax Jillian

Larkin's LettersLarkin's Letters by Jax Jillian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this book in one sitting.

As I got past the story and onto letter 2, I had to take myself away to my bedroom to continue to read.

Most of the time I couldn't read out of blurred vision and a need to keep blowing my nose and wiping my tears as they were falling thick and fast down my cheeks.

Its left me a sniveling wreck.

That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it, I did.

Jax Jillian has written this book so true to life, this could be a real life drama that anyone can experience or know of.

Its taken me several hours to think about what to write for a review.

Is it well written? Yes
Would I recommend it? Yes, especially if you like a tear jerker.

I was sat in Ryan's heart as he read those letters, as he lived his memories, as he looked forward to his future.
Gutting, heart wrenching? Oh yes.
Just be ready with the tissues.

Friendship, falling in love, childhood friends, fear of knowledge, then death. 


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 left behind.

Ryan has worked hard to become one of Hollywood's most sought-after actors, but no matter how 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 her he would never let her die alone. But we learn that not all of our promises are always within our control
