RELEASE BLITZ & 5 STAR 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*

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

Seven years ago Wade walked away from Elliot, breaking both of their hearts. But now he has to return home for reasons that no one should ever have to face and the last person he wants to see is Elliot. But when your ex is your sister's best friend and practically family, avoiding her is not going to happen. And thanks to current circumstances, their reunion is anything but happy.

Elliot and Wade's journey back to each other is a hard and frustrating one. They both have outside forces that are holding them back from what they really want. Elliot has a TERRIBLE family who constantly belittle her and make her feel like she doesn't deserve her own life and Wade is holding on to some serious guilt for not doing the right thing all those years ago. They both have to overcome some serious stuff before they are able to move on. 

This book was so hard to read at moments. There were times when I actually had to put the book down and take a short break. Not because the writing was awful or the story was bad, but because of the exact opposite. At times it felt so real. I found myself reflecting on things I've gone through in my life and then I found myself relating to the characters in a way I never have before. 

This review is shorter than my usual review because I really don't know how to put in words how much I loved this book. Staci has written a gorgeous book. It's been a couple days since I finished reading it and I finally stopped crying. On the surface this story is a wonderful second chance romance, but it is also so much more than that. 

Author Bio

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.
