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 t

Staci Hart is one of those authors I want to read forever. I am literally obsessed with her writing, her characters, her stories. She is an author I only discovered a little over a year ago and I have already read several of her titles. I can't get enough. She writes books I want to read. A Thousand Letters was actually a new adventure for not only her as the author, but also us as her readers. Staci typically writes Romantic Comedy, and ATL is NOT that. Not even a little. SO BE WARNED. No RomCo ...more

'A Thousand Letters' was my second book by this author and while I didn’t love it as much as the first, I liked it. If you are fan of second chance romance stories, then you don’t want to miss this one. Stacy Hart’s newest release was utterly emotional, equally heartbreaking and heartwarming, full of angst and it will keep you glued to the pages from beginning until the end. Stacy’s storytelling was fantastic, addictive; her poetic, lyrical prose being so wonderfully done. If you a

A Thousand Letters is easily the best book I’ve read so far in 2017 and I’m certain it will make my top favorites list of the year. It was the perfect book for me. High on emotion, gave me all the feels and was a gorgeous second chance romance. I’m going to be honest, when I started reading this book I was a little shocked. I’ve only read two other Staci Hart books, but they were much lighter than this one. Don’t get me wrong- I loved the other two books I’ve read, but this one… it pac

To infinity & beyond. That's where A Thousand Letters took me. It built me up, broke me down, crushed my heart and soul then breathed the warmest of love right back into those broken pieces.

“The words I had weren't enough. They'd never been enough. They'd never be enough.”

A Thousand Letters has literally stole all of my words, my breath, my heart. Everything. Like the quote, words are not enough. They never will be, because there are no words to fully tell you what this book means. What it

This had to be one of the most irritating books ever.If you are looking for a book that teaches you how to be a doormat, then look no further.



It was just painful. Not painful in a good way, like one of those books that touch your soul. No, this was painful because the plot was stupid. The main characters – also stupid. I should have known considering how bad Tonic was. I only sat myself up for failure. This author has a bad

So... *sigh*
I read this when I should have been writing. DON'T JUDGE ME!


See, when Staci Hart told me 'A Thousand Letters' was based on/was a retelling (of sorts) of Jane Austen's 'Persuasion' I couldn't help myself. I had to start it. And once I started it, I couldn't stop reading until it was over.

Oh Wade. Oh Elliot. You do things to me!



Staci Hart's wonderful prose evokes all the feelings this time around (and I do mean *all* the feelings) in a unputdownable retelling of one of my favorite bo

⭐⭐⭐ 3 Stars ⭐⭐⭐

A thousand letters was a story that made you feel and believe with all your might in second chances. It was emotional, heart felt, and it gave you the sense that if you truly love something and you let it go, fate will have it’s way of intervening and bring it back to you. But sometimes you have to wonder, at what cost?

Ugh, I hate DNFing books. This is actually my first DNF of the year and as much as I don't want to do it, I made it a New Year's resolution to DNF books I'm just not feeling and just stop wasting time my time on crappy books. Unfortunately, A Thousand Letters is one of those.

If I had to rate this book by no other criteria than this author's writing style I would have given it 5 stars. Staci Hart has a lyrical voice and I fell in love with it at the get-go.

I existed in the space between our hands, between the beating of our hearts, between the breaths we slowly sipped, savoring the moment I'd imagined for so long.

Wow. WOWWWWW. When you're moved to tears within the first 10% of the book, that's how you know two things: 1) The emotions in this story are powerful and 2) The author can WRITE.

We all know I'm a fiend when it comes to angst, but I've never had angst done like this. Never in my life have I read a book that was so raw, so REAL, so honest and heartbreaking in such a flawlessly beautiful way. Every single page made me feel -- anguish, pain, love, loss, desire -- I felt EVERYTHING. Hart didn't just

A Thousand Letters is the first book I've read by Staci Hart and, being a lover of the second chance trope and seeing the number of positive reviews, I was looking forward to reading.

"In an hour, my world had been brought to a stop. In five hours, it would begin to turn backward, back to my past, back to the boy I loved. The boy I ruined."

Told from a dual POV, this is a fairly somber read right from the opening chapter. And ordinarily I'm happy with that, so perhaps it's me because yo

It's very rare that I do this, but I can't finish this one. DNF at 18%. The story and writing are beautiful, but I don't care for either main character. I don't do weak women! Hopefully Elliott grows a backbone by the end of the story, but I just can't stick around to find out.

Since I like the writing and plot, I'll definitely read other works by Staci Hart. Please take my choice with a grain of salt. I like strong, sassy, feisty woman. That's why this book didn't resonate with me. If that's no

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.

I adored this book! You know when you pick up a book and you connect to the story from the very first couple of chapters, it draws you in and makes you become a part of the world that is laid before you on the pages - this was that experience for me.

A Thousand Letters was an emotional read, very sad, but full of hope.

A Thousand Letters was an emotionally, beautiful story about the power of second chances, the family you choose and the ability to forgive. Wade and Elliot were once the epitome of best friends and soul mates but life proved that it isn't always easy or straightforward. And Elliot and Wade's story is an example that second chances may only come around once in A Thousand Letters, yet can be more perfect than the first time.

Give me a book based on a Jane Austen novel and I will read it in a heartbeat. A Thousand Letters is based on Austen’s Persuasion and it's a fine updating with a modern twist. Elliot is our heroine in place of Anne, Wade is Captain Wentworth, and the rest of the family follows the outline of the original—right down to the horrible sister and father.

Elliot works at a bookstore (the one from Wasted Words, by the way) and also watches her ungrateful and selfish sister’s children. She was left heart

A Thousand Letters is the first book I've read by Staci Hart. I must admit, the book cover caught my eye first and foremost. It was then when I'd read the book blurb, promising a very angsty emotional rollercoaster ride, did I drop everything and request an early copy of this book.

One thing that really stood out for me is the very poetic nature of Staci Hart's prose. Granted. This book centers around a Literature graduate, several poems and classic books quoted along t

I came across this book's blurb only last week and it was the last sentence that intrigued me: *A contemporary romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Persuasion*. Staci Hart is a new to me author, by the way.

I'm a sucker for Persuasion and have been ever since I first read it. It has a special place in my heart. And if you need a reminder what an astonishingly beautiful piece of work Persuasion is, please please read Kathy's formidable review. And even if you don't n

I had such high hopes for A Thousand Letters. So many of my reader friends adore this author's writing style and storytelling, Staci Hart comes highly recommended. This was the first book I'd read from her and I was both surprised and disappointed that this story just didn't work for me. That gorgeous cover and that compelling blurb had me geared up for an angsty second chance romance and I was left feeling underwhelmed.

This story is a modern day retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion, and maybe

Dear god, this book was so beautiful!

The language had such a haunting quality to it, that I just couldn’t put it down.

From the very beginning of the book, Hart grips your heart in an iron hold, and refuses to let go. At certain instances, I really felt like my heart was more than just skipping it’s beats. This book was so lyrical, and emotional that it felt like one of tragically beautiful f

Fair Warning! This book will not only capture your heart, it may even leave it a bit worse for wear.
