A Thousand Letters
by Staci Hart
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 9th, 2017
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*
A Thousand Letters is available in both ebook and paperback editions AND IT’S FREE TO READ ON KINDLE UNLIMITED! =D
The shades. The models. The colors. WHAT DIDN’T I LIKE IN THIS COVER?!! Seriously, I’m in love with everything! The delicate yet clear work with the white and black letters, the light adjustment, THOSE MODELS. I can’t even with this cover, the mood for the theme of the romance couldn’t be more perfect!! I really need this paperback at my shelves, just saying.
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, even 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. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.
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.
Thanks so much for reading! I love retellings, not only for fairy tales, but also for the classics! I hope you guys loved the premise of this book as much as I did ❤
