Author Spotlight: Susan Pogorzelski’s The Last Letter

Author Spotlight

Written as a series of letters between 1999 and 2003, The Last Letter is a touching coming-of-age tale about Lia Lenelli, a teenage girl struggling to shape her own identity while a chronic illness threatens to tear her world apart. Based on the author’s own struggle to find a diagnosis and subsequent recovery from chronic Lyme disease, The Last Letter is a moving story of survival, hope, and the legacy we weave.

“The Last Letter is a semi-autobiographical account of my experiences living with late-stage, Chronic Lyme Disease. This book, while primarily a work of fiction, became a way for me to share my story, including the struggle to find a diagnosis, the complications that come with treating such a complex illness, and the emotional toll that years of fighting for your own health can take on the soul,” tells Pogorzelski.
