A Thousand Letters 

A Thousand Letters

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 … 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

    You have books that can only manage to touch the surface of emotions, but Hart is beautifully capable of captivating us on a much deeper level. I felt like I could have cried the entire book I’m pretty sure I did. OK, so this review is WAY OVERDUE, I’ve had to do a re-read after finishing A Little Too Late and for some reason never made the connection between the two books. And even though it’s been a while since I’ve read it, of course, the tears were flowing once again. I’ve been super surprised with some of the low ratings … they know nothing, Jon Snow 😉

    Man, this book is just heartbreaking from the very beginning. To be young and in love, making plans for the future and one decision to obliterate it all. But as you read further into the book, you learn more about them individually and what they went through after that heartbreak together. They haven’t seen each other in seven years, brought back into each other’s lives because of Wade’s father’s sickness. Wade may be the blood relative, but Elliot is just as much as family as anyone else since she was also the best friend of Wade’s sister, Sophie.

    Every interaction between Wade and Elliot, even when words aren’t spoken between them, it still manages to take pieces of my heart away. There’s so much left unsolved between the both of them and both of their lives have drastically changed since that day seven years ago. Wade is just so angry and can’t bear to be around Elliot; he fights his true wants so hard, but when he tries to move forward on something, it doesn’t take much for his temper to rise and lash out. Leaving more chaos on his trail.

    One element that I loved the most was seeing Elliot’s growth and coming into herself through the book. I can’t say that I liked how she was a doormat for her family. She was essentially a shell of a person, giving into whatever her family needed. Even though she knew what they were doing, she was devoted to her niece, nephew, and brother-in-law (the only decent human being in her family besides the kiddos). You couldn’t help, but pity and be somewhat annoyed by the fact that she let them walk over her. But we see another facet of Elliot when she’s with Wade’s father and sisters. She is so fiercely strong for them, being the anchor that they needed. By the end, I grew to love Elliot the most, she bloomed into the perfect character I could have ever imagined. I was proud of her by the end!

    Despite being mad at Wade most of the time for his behavior, he came through in the end and all was forgiven. These two have to get through so much to finally be at peace together. It’s an emotional and heartbreaking journey bringing up the past and learning to deal with their current reality of Wade’s dying father and just resolving their own issues.

    A Thousand Letters is a #RSFave and I recommend everyone to go into this second chance romance blind. I remember when I first read it, this was not what I was expecting for a second chance story, but I loved every moment of it. It’s a must-read, so everyone needs to get up on it.

    Wow… A Thousand Letters is a MUST READ! Absolutely flawless. At first I wasn’t sure about reading this because I wasn’t a big fan of Staci Hart’s Tonic, but I’m so glad that I got the chance to read this. It’s a perfect modern-day version of Jane Austen’s Persuasion.

    “Braveness isn’t always loud. Sometimes it’s silent. There’s braveness in sacrifice and kindness. It’s in doing a thing that needs to be done, even though it’s hard, and even though it hurts.”

    The story is a second chance romance between Elliot and Wade. The two had plans for marriage after Elliot’s high school graduation, but things fell through and mistakes were made. A crack turned into a chasm, and they avoided each other for 7 years. Wade left for the army and Elliot stayed behind.

    When Wade’s father gets terminally ill, the two have to face their past and come to the realization that they aren’t over. But things aren’t going to be easy since both of them have seven years worth of pain, anger, and sadness.

    This beautifully written story made me experience so many powerful emotions. There were moments my heart was in pain. This book is a must for 2017.
