In The Letter (Grand Central Publishing, 2012), Marie Tillman recounts how she rebuilt her life after her husband Pat’s untimely death in Afghanistan. It’s also her tribute to him as she carries forth his legacy as co-founder of the Pat Tillman Foundation.
This moving and courageous book details her difficult journey to recovery after the “friendly fire” incident that killed this former professional football player who left the profession to join the Army.
Marie writes about how a letter she found on her dresser from Pat helped her to love again. If you are looking to read an honest, open and inspirational book, The Letter would be a great choice.
You can listen to Marie talk about her life on this podcast of The Women’s Eye Radio Show with Stacey Gualandi.
