Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.
I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.
But now he’s back.
I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.
Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.
One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.
*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*

Review

Guys… This is my first best book of 2017 new release! You need A Thousand Letters in your life. Most of you know Staci Hart for her romantic comedies, but she completely outdid herself with this one.

 

You feel every freaking emotion. You connect with the characters and their strife. You feel the pain of the situation as a whole, and on a personal level.

 

I connected so much with Elliot it was unreal.  I’ve felt her pain. I’ve been in her shoes with the way she feels.  There’s only so much you can give before you’re all tapped out. She is a freaking saint for putting up with the things she does. I admire the way she doesn’t let how others treat her affect her too much.  She’s strong and has a backbone when she feels like she needs it.  I love that she’s there for the people she loves, even when it hurts so much she can barely stand it.  I’ve loved many of Hart’s characters, but Elliot takes the cake. I connected with her on a personal level, and it completely gutted me.

 

My heart also broke for Wade.  He’s a man who has lost himself and struggles to find his way back to the guy he used to be.  He struggles with letting people in, and doesn’t rely on too many people to help him when he’s in pain. I really enjoyed seeing his character progress throughout the book even though I wanted to smack him upside the head a few times.

 

All in all… I loved this book. It destroyed me and put me back together.  Grab some tissues, your strongest alcohol, and dive in.  You won’t be sorry.

About Staci Hart

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, even though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.

From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.
