While working on A Soldier’s Heart, he turns to his high school English teacher for help. No one is as surprised as Millie when she and Raymond fall in love. As adults, Wally the grocer, Raymond the reporter, and Sheriff Bud finally solve the Donny Weber mystery. But when Raymond loses Millie his war starts all over again. Meanwhile Raleigh honors her in a most unusual way. Letters to Millie: Raymond becomes the town drunk. Bud and Wally intervene to keep him from killing Tiltin’ Stilton, the world’s worst lawyer. Driven to the brink of insanity, Raymond starts writing letters to Millie. Meanwhile, Stilton’s enemies bring big city crime to Raleigh. A plane crash, a dry cleaner’s sudden wealth, and contract killings have only one thing in common, a lawyer named Stilton. Three lifelong friends unite to stop the crime wave, and save Raymond from violence and booze. He turns his letters to Millie over to a friend for safe-keeping, and we see how writing saved a man from madness. Letters to Millie is about real life, but it is a love story after all.
