Inked Avenue Reviews… “A Thousand Letters” by Staci Hart

//A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart//


A thousand feelings for A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart. It was the most frustrating, most heartbreaking, and most romantic novel Hart has written and I adored every word. The story-line, the characters, the gut-wrenching tragedy they’re facing… every element of this story wrapped it’s arms around my heart and had me teary eyed by chapter two.

a-thousand-letters-staci-hartStaci Hart perfected the contemporary twist of a Jane Austen novel. Turning her inspiration from Austen’s Persuasion, into a classic love story perfected for a modern day romance reader. Complete with poetry that reflects both the unfortunate heartbreaking moments and the moments that breath life into your soul, A Thousand Letters reads like an elegant piece of prose. Crumbling your heart to dust from page one but slowly piecing together a new stronger beating heart in it’s place.

This is unlike any other romance I’ve ever read from both Hart herself or any other author. Yes, it holds all the necessary elements to be qualified as a romance… love, longing, heart shattering tragedy, etc… However, this novel goes above and beyond what I was expecting and gives a new meaning to the word angst. You can definitely pick up on the subtle  Jane Austen details sprinkled throughout the story, adding to the maddening and enraged feelings I had towards Elliot’s family… and Elliot and Wade… also, adding to the heartwarming and swoon worthy moments. {Again, I’m looking at you Elliot and Wade}.

A Thousand Letters is the classic romance of a contemporary generation. Breathing new life into simple love story about second chances and the hope that love can stand the test of time.




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*

//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, 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.

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 reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
