Dear Kate (The Letters Book 1) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Hope didn't just leave memories behind her though. She also left behind a husband to whom she entrusted their two adorable young children, and a box of letters. Knowing that she wasn't going to win her battle, Hope had written dozens of letters, not just ones to be read by her children on special occasions, but also some for her three best friends.
Even from the grave, Hope's first letter to Kate does what Hope always did best. Impart advice ... and meddle.
For her part, Kate feels compelled to honor her best friends dying wishes, even though what's being asked of her is something that she might have refused had Hope still been living.
Kate, ever the serious, level headed one of the group, the one who's already up for partner at the law firm she works at, has been asked to do something so foreign to her nature that she's not even sure she can, even if she wanted to.
Starting at Hope's funeral, Dear Kate by Elizabeth Lee is one of those books that brings a kaleidoscope of emotions. Grief and sadness, hope and joy, fear, wonder, doubt and love. It's all there and more.
Told first person from dual perspectives, it follows Kate and Deacon, a guy Hope thought would be a good match for Kate as they embark upon an emotional quest as Kate seeks to understand where true happiness lies and discover whether she has the courage to search it out.
Unlike many series, the two other best friends, Will and Vanessa, not only feature heavily, but we see aspects of their own stories start to unfold in the background even as the bulk of the attention is on Kate.
I found this book to be a fantastic read, full of heart and joy, and can hardly wait for the next two volumes in the series.
If you're looking for a story that makes you want to embrace everything in life, look no further. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop because the characters grab you by the heart. I devoured it in one sitting. I can't wait to read more of Hope's letters in the next book.
I liked the premise, and how the story plays out. I felt Kate and Deacon's connection from the first page they met. I loved this book, and can't wait for Willa's and Vanessa's.
