BOOK REVIEW ― A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart


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*

Rating & Review


description A shot of adrenaline is all it takes, triggered by a thought. A word. A memory. And every time the reaction is singular, a fingerprint of a moment. Sometimes it’s a flutter, a flicker of wings in your chest. Others, it’s a relentless vise that stops the beat, if only for a second. It might be a hot burn, spreading like wildfire in your ribs, or an icy cold space, empty and void. But the heart always reacts.

It is said that beauty breeds in chaos and this story is exactly that. The story is a beautiful chaos of what could have been and what if's. The chaos of a love story that ended way too soon but the burning embers still flickered in the hopes that it will be ignited once again.

This story is chaotic.
This story is beautiful.

This story is heavy with emotions that run rampant from the very first page and grips you and doesn't let you put the books down until you witness the heaviness that coated the pages turned into a lightness and a happy ever after you were holding on the hope for.

A Thousand Letters is easily one of my top favorite book of 2017 and another fantastic addition to the super angsty Second Chance Romance. This book was perfect and I wouldn't change one single thing about it.

descriptionLife is short, so short, so precious, every minute, every day. Don't let the people you love, the people who make you happy, the people who bring you joy —don't let them go. Hang on to them, even when it hurts. When it seems impossible. Hold on to the things that breathe life into you. Listen to your soul and honor what it tells you. Live. Fight for what you love.

Elliot and Wade. They are perfect for each other. Their love knows no time, space and boundaries. They never stopped loving each other, even when they left on bad terms and didn't speak to each other for years.

There are sunshine and rainbows in this love story. There is pain and hurt, and loss and so many things left unsaid that are waiting to come out from both, Elliot and Wade.

I adored every minute of this book and I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a read that is high on emotion and all about love, loss, and second chances.
