Read the book and meet the author of LETTING GO. About the book: Memory of war always loomed large for Dwight Bogdanovic. After all, his immigrant grandfather volunteered to fight in World War I and his working-class father joined up with the Canadian Army to fight the Nazis early in World War II. Yet it is only when Dwight's soldier son, Bertrand, is killed under mysterious circumstances in Afghanistan that he really tries to understand why men fight and die. Dwight struggles to overcome the loss of Bertrand and constantly replays letters from him in his head before realizing that the greatest challenge is not merely to survive, but to let go.
