Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385340664, Mass Market Paperback)

In the heart of every family
lie shattering secrets,
and a love that lasts forever...

When war and its aftermath take Josh from Natalie and her children, she must find a way to heal her broken family. And so Natalie begins writing letters from Josh that she hides for young Anna and Toby to find—notes from heaven that attempt to explain why he left, to offer comfort and wisdom. But when Anna suddenly reveals that her father has been speaking to her from heaven, divulging stories only Josh could know, Natalie must uncover the secrets of her husband’s past—secrets he hid to protect his family.

As Natalie’s search brings her closer to her own parents and reunites her with a love from long ago, she and her children will discover just how much of a hero Josh actually was—and that only by finally revealing the truths they’ve hidden from each other can they find peace, a fresh start, and the promise of a hopeful future….

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:13:44 -0400)

Natalie tries to bring solace to her children by secretly writing letters--ostensibly from their dead father Josh in heaven--that offer them comfort and wisdom, until her daughter announces that her father's spirit has been speaking to her.
