New Release Review | A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart

Title: A Thousand Letters
Author: Staci Hart
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 9, 2017

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 bought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

*A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*

A breathtaking story that’ll invoke many emotions and cause them to constantly swirl. My heart ached while reading, but it was also beautiful and full of hope.

Wade and Elliot gave me chills. I always like second chance romances or simply when characters share a history. There’s an opportunity to gaze into their dynamic and past, whether it be good or bad, and it adds so much depth to the story. That’s exactly what happened with Wade and Elliot. Without delving too much into it, I felt their history and potent connection. Now after not speaking for years, they have to deal with being pushed back together and losing a mutual loved one. 

Their journey was raw and real, and all-consuming. The execution of this story was wonderfully laid out and formulated. Both intense and poetic, this book breathes love and hope with every powerful word.

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.
