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*


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.

Second chance romances can often be angsty and this was no exception, with a hero who is back from his military base in Germany to spend time with his dying father, and a heroine who is so deeply ingrained in her ex-boyfriend’s family, loved by everyone but her own flesh and blood.

Wade and Eliot never stopped loving each other, but circumstance and pride has prevented them from being together, and it was torturous for me as a reader to see how much they loved each other but still be apart.

“My regret was infinite. And that regret had made me lonely. Angry. It had changed me, twisted me into the man I was now. And now… now it was impossible to see a way back. I told her now or never, and that mistake would haunt me until the day I died.”

If you are looking for an emotional read that will resonate with you, I highly recommend this book, the writing was phenomenal and I really hope Hart pens more books like this in the future, you could tell that this book meant a lot to her as an author, it just shows in every paragraph and word, there is so much passion.

I am basing my five stars on both my feelings whilst reading this book, and the sheer quality of the writing, A Thousand Letters was a surefire winner for me.

A Thousand Letters is a standalone contemporary romance, told from dual POV
