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*

There was nothing about the characters I related to. At 17 Elliott does not run away with her boyfriend and for 7 years he avoids her. She spends time with his family and when in town, he avoids his family because of her. I didn't like Elliott because she weak, immature, and was only good at reading books. She took crap from everyone and only showed a backbone the one time someone pointed this out to her. I hated the book because the lovers only had to listen to each other for 5 mins but everyone wanted to hurt. They thrived on being the abused one & not being brave to live their own lives. The novel quoted other books too much. If I want to read Emily Dickinson I'd read it. Tell me a character's reading, not a whole poem of another's work.

This is probably one of the saddest (as in actually sad, not as in it being bad) stories I have read in a while. It even gave me a small dose of insomnia that didn't go away until I finally finished it and got some resolution with the characters. Wade is a straight up a-hole and I get that there are reasons, but I didn't feel like I understood them until the end and even still it doesn't make up for his behavior. The commonly used theme of people being bull headed and causing themselves extra problems by not communicating is also a slight pet peeve of mine but that's what gives a story the necessary drama to make it an actual story. I haven't read Persuasion, so I'm not sure how much this story followed it, buy I did enjoy the ending quite a bit and would read more stories involving these characters.

The book was good but I got disgusted with Wade. It always had to be his way, and Elliot let people walk all over her. She said she wasn't it was just easy not to fight with them. Wade walked all over her to. He loved her but blamed everything on her and others. Really a selfish guy. The story has it's said moments and finally Wade gets taken down a peg or two by Elliot and his family.

A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart is a solid, multi-tissue read. These characters are amazing. You will lose your mind. Just when you think you have it figured out, Hart flips that coin in the air. I swear, that is how she must have plotted this book, it curved so hard. So, so many tears. You must read this book.
