An hour to Live, an hour to die was another book I read this week. This was a read on my list to read personally. I was intrigued by Happy Wives Club mentioning this, so I checked it out at the Library. This story is a letter collection given to Kristine Carlson by her husband on their 18th wedding anniversary. After reading this she asked him was he terminally ill. In response he says no but our true love inspires me. He writes that she is the person he would call if he had one hour to live. He writes to her all the reasons he loves her and admires her. After the book is published he starts to promote this book to millions. As he is away, unexpectedly he dies suddenly.

She only has this to help her through her grief and loss. I would say this is an inspiring yet sad book. Easy read and definitely a great inspiration to live "One day at a time". ( )

This is a true love story that serves as a reminder and a wake up call. It is written by Kristine Carlson, in loving memory of Richard Carlson, her husband of more than 25 years. His sudden departure from the world hit her hard but she has chosen to live and carry on his legacy. The book is focused on answering a letter Richard wrote to her on their eighteen wedding anniversary. And with it, also provides us insights, inspire us, and remind us what it is that really matters in life....

It took me only half a day to finish this book, mainly because I couldn't put it down. It's like a beautifully appropriate parting message from Richard Carlson; and his wife, Kristine Carlson's courage and strength is an inspiration and brings the message of hope.
