A box with Love Letters From Vietnam etched on top holds letters written from a passionate yet deeply flawed soldier to his wife decades ago, but stays buried in a closet for years, until the Vietnam veteran is gunned down in the driveway of the home he rents for his mistress. As a way to work through her anger and sense of betrayal, his daughter, Jennifer, opens the box and sorts through the letters, answering four of them back in time to Vietnam . . . and then she writes to him in the heaven she hopes he has now found. After attending Alex Woodard's concert, Jennifer sends the singer-songwriter her package of letters, which launches Woodard on his own journey of exploring the dichotomy between dark and light as he imagines himself as Sergeant Fuller at war and begins to write songs sung from Fuller's heart. An album of songs included with the book propels this true story and features Woodard as Sergeant Fuller and Molly Jenson as Jennifer, singing songs based on the exchange of letters as a soundtrack that can hopefully lead to a final, redemptive father-daughter dance in Jennifer's heart.
