“The Last Letter is a haunting, heartbreaking and ultimately inspirational love story.“—InTouch Weekly


If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have.

I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride.

My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.

And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.

So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.

Please don’t make her go through it alone.

This book slayed the hell out of me.

A couple of things you should know about me and reading:
1. I do most of my reading on a treadmill or just before I go to sleep.
2. I cry at pretty much every Disney movie. I also cried all the way through the movie Wonder.

As someone who writes primarily romantic ...more

The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros is as much a heartbreaking as it is heartwarming contemporary romance. For anyone not familiar what the title, The Last Letter, is referring to the book is about a soldier who was killed in duty leaving a letter to be read after his death.

This book is indescribably beautiful. The sheer genius of how Rebecca weaves the letters into the story to match up w/the poignancy of the corresponding chapters... I have no words. None that would do it justice, anyway. This book will most definitely rip your heart out. But then it puts it back in ...more

“If I ever hide something from you, it’s because I’m terrified to risk losing you. That whole roller-coaster thing? I’ve never felt like this. Never had my heart leave my body and belong to someone else. I don’t know how to have a relationship, and I’m bound to screw this one up.”

I just finished this book, and I am a crying, slobbering mess, and I don’t think I can write a review. Maybe in a few days, or weeks or maybe never.

Highly recommended, just make sure you have a mega box of tissues!

The Last Letter blew me away. It’s a story of love, lust, courage and heartbreak. It's about how love can heal and how loss and challenge make us stronger and more resilient.

Just by reading the synopsis, I knew it was going to be a tear jerker.
But at the back of my mind I was praying that this book wouldn't turn into a 'Dear John' type of book.

4 stars for this Women’s Fiction novel. The Last Letter is everything you could want in women’s fiction- laughter, tears, romance and a steamy sex scene or 2.

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Rebecca Yarros

Rebecca Yarros is a hopeless romantic and lover of all things chocolate, coffee, and Paleo. In addition to being a mom, military wife, and blogger, she can never choose between Young Adult and New Adult fiction, so she writes both. She's a graduate of Troy University, where she studied European history and English, but still holds out hope for an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Her blog, The Only Girl Among Boys, has been voted the Top Military Mom Blog the last two years, and celebrates the complex issues surrounding the military life she adores. When she's not writing, she's tying on hockey skates for her kids, or sneaking in some guitar time. She is madly in love with her army-aviator husband of eleven years, and they're currently stationed in Upstate NY with their gaggle of rambunctious kiddos and snoring English Bulldog, but she would always rather be home in Colorado.
