Life has a strange way of repeating itself, and I want my experience to help you. My hope is that you'll consider my words and remember my heart....


Harry Whitney is dying. He has Alzheimer's disease, and he knows his "good" time is dwindling. So he compiles a book of poems for his beloved granddaughter, Emily, hoping that his words of hard-won wisdom will heal the old wounds that are tearing his family apart. But Harry's poems contain much more than meets the eye -- clues and riddles that lead to an extraordinary cache of letters and a promise of hidden gold. Are they the ramblings of a man losing touch with reality? Or has Harry given them a gift more valuable than any one of them could have guessed?

A memorable tale of the power of love and family, Letters for Emily is a novel sure to enrich readers of all generations.
