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*
Staci Hart takes you on an absolute phenomenal journey in her newest novel, A Thousand Letters.. A breathtakingly beautiful second chance romance filled with life, loss and so much love. I cried a thousand tears, my heart broke a thousand times and when it was all said and done my heart was so freaking full of LOVE from this amazing story that I would read it a thousand more times.
This book stole my breath. I picked it up and I simply devoured it. This was my first read from this author and certainly won’t be my last. A story of a childhood love that was ripped apart when Wade went into the Army. He wanted Elliot to choose, her family or him. Ultimately she chose them and the years that followed were full of unanswered letters, little did Elliot know the grief that was tearing Wade apart. The hurt of him letting her go, the hurt of what he has seen in his years in the military. He was upset with not just her but ultimately himself for letting her go.
Now that he is back due to a tragic event he wants to make it right but unnecessary jealousy creeps in, along with doubts, insecurities and anger. It isn’t only Wade that is suffering, so is Elliot not just from the current situation or from Wade but from issues within her own family. Now that they’ve found their way back to each other will their obvious love for one another outshine and overcome?
If you want a book that will truly take you through a gamut of emotions this is it. I loved every single second of it! A definite must read for all angst lovers!
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.
