A Thousand Letters: Inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion (The Austens Series Book 2) Kindle Edition
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*

Simply put this is a remarkable story and could be the glimpse into the lives of many with how relatable it is. Absolutely recommend.
Well...I have just read my #1 book for 2017 to date.
What a beautifully sublime reading experience Staci Hart has delivered in
A Thousand Letters. It's simplistic reality of devastating loss & misunderstanding will haunt me for a long time to come.
For those of you who have experienced, to any degree, the loss of a loved one, reading these words will resonate so deeply within you that you will feel you are back in time with that person...experiencing all those emotions all over again. And those of you who are not touched with loss will have your eyes opened to how devastating losing someone you love can be.
This story is not your normal sexy HEA read.
It is raw, gritty, combative & at times just truly heartbreakingly cruel.
But....what it also is...is poetic beauty...superb writing at it's highest quality.
Staci is hugely talented in poetic prose & she has used this ability to weave her briilliance into a piece of writing that is so seamless & effortlessly flowing you don't realise your reading is actually being paused by different chapter headings.
Elliot (is this an intentional salute to T.S. Elliot poet extraordinaire?) would have to be one of the strongest characters I have ever come across..she endures such heartache in this story...but we can all learn a hell of a lot from this brave brave woman.
Wade (another intentional wave to the literary world?) is devastating...to Elliot, to his family & to himself, but he is also lost & can't seem to claw his way out of the abyss he has plunged himself into.
I'm not going to go into storyline, plot, characters, because this story is bigger than all of that.
I want you, the reader, to purchase this book & let it take you on your own journey, because this one will affect us all differently.
Be warned... this story is highly emotional...this story is highly addictive... this story is PHENOMENAL!!!
Thank you Staci Hart...this is not my first of yours...but it is my favourite.
This is worth so much more than 5stars...just devastaingly brilliant!

Elliot was an interesting heroine to read. She's surrounded by awful people and just seems to accept that this is her lot in life. Her sisters, her father are honestly just some of the worst people a person could ever be stuck with and it immediately brought an underlying sadness to the book. Despite this, Elliot is kind to them and helps them with their personal lives. I loved that she had a refuge in Sophie as well as in her workplace WASTED WORDS(!) as it helped Elliot not be too heavy a character to deal with.
Wade on the other hand was a bit of a douche. Idk if that's just sticking to the Jane Austen model (after Darcy it doesn't seem like that much of a stretch, although I do feel like Jane Austen was trying to tell us something) or if it's been heightened a bit more for this book but whilst I never hated him, his actions were not agreeable. His relationship with his sisters was mostly a nice touch and I did like how he got it together in the end. By the final chapter I definitely didn't think my douche comments so that was
Wade and Elliot together definitely made for an intriguing couple. Despite their love of each other being clear as day, they encountered so many obstacles before finally being able too get to a good place. Overall, the feeling that this book left me with was one of a story well told from beginning to end.
Mild spoiler alert: there are poems at the beginning of each chapter and I love them all.
Rating: 4 stars
The first is because of how this author handled a parents death. It was real and painful, yet beautiful and poignant at the same time. Having gone through it myself I thought the author handled it wonderfully.
Secondly, the author handles a soldier coming home and readjusting to life well. I loved Wade's character arc. This story is mainly about him and I loved seeing hi let love in again.
Sophie and Sadie were great characters. To see how they all dealt with grief was heartbreaking but comparing it to the coldness of Elliot's family made the contrast even more stark.
Elliot was the only character that I felt took away from the novel. So much was out into wade and his family that I just wish we saw more emotion from Elliot. Her grief is written about but she is such a stoic character that you never really see it.
Her and Wade's story is one of second chances and it truly is a beautiful one.
A Thousand Letters is so beautifully written, not only with the main story which is so real and so raw, but with the extra details like the poetry and the imagery. I felt every emotion along side Wade and Elliot and this angst filled rollercoaster had me in tears. I was captivated from the first page and desperate to find out if Wade and Elliot could find their way to their HEA. I love Staci Hart's books, but I really was blown away by this poetic masterpiece.
