Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

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*

Il libro viene presentato come una versione moderna del libro "Persuasione" di Jane Austen. Ma non posso dire di avere trovato i due personaggi di Jane insopportabili come questi due. Eliott, la protagonista, è un tappetino (certo lo è anche nella storia originale, ma mentre ci stava per una ragazza del 1800, è davvero poco credibile, o auspicabile, per una giovane del 21 secolo che vive a New York). Wade, il protagonista maschile, prende, se ne va, torna, riprende quello che vuole... Non mi è piaciuto per niente. I personaggi migliori (quelli che mi hanno fatto mettere le due stelline) sono il padre di Wade, che sta morendo ma che dimostra uno spessore e una sensibilità eccezionali, e Ben, l'amico di Wade che lo viene a trovare per supportarlo. Sono partita con le migliori intenzioni, ma il libro proprio non mi ha "preso". Mi dispiace.

3.0 su 5 stelle I wanted more romance 12 febbraio 2017
Di Book Addict - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
As soon as I found out about this book I couldn't wait to read it. I loved the cover, the synopsis, the teasers - everything. I pre-ordered the book as soon as it was available and was waiting with bated breathe for it to hit my kindle.

So it pains me greatly to say that this book didn't work for me. I found it incredibly slow, and felt Elliot and Wade's romance and path back to each other was the secondary story. Wades's dads sudden illness and the Elliot's toxic family were the main story here and sadly romance took a back seat and a second place.

I didn't connect with Elliot, she was a doormat allowing her family to treat her appallingly. She had no drive, spirit or enthusiasm and at no stage did she "fight" to get Wade back in her life. Wade changed his mind about what he wanted with Elliot in every chapter that was told from his POV and none of his reasons for staying away now or why he behaved the way he did 7 years prior were credible to me. I was expecting angst but what I got instead was frustration because the story was drawn out for no valid reason.

The book however was well written and parts of it were touching and beautifully executed. Rick - (Wades dad) was a great character and I did enjoy some of the poems recited through out the book.

Overall the tone of the book was quite sad and melancholy which I didn't mind and Mary( Elliot's sister) and her dad were great villains.

Whilst this book didn't work for me it may very well work for you so I encourage all to give it a try.

5.0 su 5 stelle You never can tell with letters 9 febbraio 2017
Di Old Dave's Romance Revue - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A change of plans, two ultimatums, and a choice were all it took to take the plans Wade and Elliot had crafted for a lifetime together and grind them into dust.

Even though after almost immediately regretting her choice, Elliot wrote to Wade in an attempt to reverse the trajectory of their relationship, followed by another letter, and another, and hundreds more. That was all almost seven years ago and in all that time, the only response Elliot ever got was no response at all.

The thing with letters though is that you never can tell. With no response, Elliot has no way of knowing what, if any impact they had on how Wade felt about her or they way they'd left things. No idea if he'd even bothered to read a single one before throwing them out. No idea at all, and right now, none of that seems to matter too much.

What matters is that her mentor, and surrogate father figure, Rick, was dying, and suddenly Elliot's main priority was to spend as much time with him as possible while simultaneously supporting her best friend, Rick's real daughter Sophie, and Sophie's younger sister Sadie through this tumultuous and emotional time.

The thing is, Rick has a son too. One that has barely been home in the seven years since he enlisted, but upon hearing the news, he, Wade, is on his way home too.

In all the books I've read from Staci Hart, perhaps the thing I've enjoyed the most is the sense of humor woven through them. Whether it be a more serious tale laced with humor, or a full fledged RomCom, I could always count on at least a smile every few pages.

A Thousand Letters is not that kind of book. Set largely against the backdrop of a dying man's final days, with close friends and family struggling to come to terms with his prognosis and extended family at a loss for how to help in any meaningful way beyond providing casseroles, Elliot has an awful lot on her plate.

On the one hand, there's her own dysfunctional family, and on the other, the family she's adopted is performing their own spiral into dysfunctionality as they try, with differing levels of success, to cope with the pressures their situation forces upon them.

So rather than a smile every few pages, I found that instead almost every page brought a new twinge to the pain I experienced in my chest as I read, and every few pages brought tears. The narrative so real that each heartrending emotion felt by the major characters was echoed as my own. Each distressing realization they experienced flayed yet another layer from my heart, and as the disturbing distance between Wade and Elliot ebbs and flows as they stumble almost blindly through experiencing the same loss and grief without ever actually sharing it, I couldn't help but empathize with each in their own stupor while concurrently just wanting to lock them in a room together and forcing them to work their issues out.

What makes a book like this truly work, what makes the angst bearable after a fashion, is that, from the perspectives of the two protagonists, their reasons for choosing the path they're on need to work. Their thoughts and motives, based within their understanding need to be not just tangible to the reader, but compelling such that even while the reader, with the vantage of perspective is silently crying "You fool! You fool!", at the very same moment they're commiserating with the character, "Were I in your shoes, I'd have done the same", and Staci manages this duality with precision and grace.

While this first person, dual point of view masterpiece is set in the same universe as Staci's Bad Habits series and it's related spin-offs, it very much stands on it's own as a standalone novel, and I simply couldn't help falling in love with it.

In my not so humble opinion, this is the best characterization, the best development, the best crafting of plot and prose. In short, the best writing that Staci has produced to date and I can't but help recommend it to anyone, whether they've read any of her other works or not, so long as they have an ample supply of tissues, or don't mind soaking their sleeves.

All the stars.

5.0 su 5 stelle This is a once in a life time kind of book. 9 febbraio 2017
Di Jordan Bates - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
There comes a time in your life where you read a book that just gets you. I thought I had read it already, but I couldn't be more wrong. Wade and Elliot's story did more than just move me, it broke me. But it also healed me like no love ever could, and by doing that, I feel that I have finally been freed. I’ve been through a lot in life, and this book, this is one of those books that makes you realize that you aren’t alone, that there are others out there that understand what pain is, and not just on the level of love either.

For once in my life when reading a romance novel, it’s not the female I’m relating to. Wade’s story is one that hits really close to home, and his strength embodies everything that a man like him has been through. For a man who has been dealt some of the worst cards, his perseverance to move forward is outstanding. Even though he does it for all the wrong reasons, and never the right way, you can’t help but understand why Wade makes the decisions that he does. But even though it is always Wade’s actions that move this story forward, it isn’t really Wade’s story, no. It’s Elliot’s, and that symmetry is beyond poetic. It’s Austenesque.

Elliot. Goodness. Elliot is a character who I bow down to. She is selfless in every way possible, even when it turns her life upside down. You can feel all of her pain, love, and anguish, BUT you also get to read it. Elliot’s passion for poetry is something that brings this book to the next level. Each poem is chosen specifically with what is happening, and it just seems to open all the wounds over and over again, but in the best way possible.

I’m going to be super honest here. This is Hart’s best novel by far. But not just that; this is hands down one of the best novels I have ever had the pleasure to read. Austen would be proud. I was DESTROYED by this book. My heart was shattered into a million pieces, and then put back together with forgiveness, acceptance, and love. You will be put on this rollercoaster of emotions, but you will love every single second of pain and love that you will feel, because I can guarantee that even though there is pain, there is love. Some much love.

I had to abandon this book at 30%, I felt like there was a story but at the same time isn't. There's so much inner monologue, the characters hardly interact which probably was the point. The first few chapters didn't hold my interest and I felt a bit depressed reading it. I really like this author but this book wasn't for me.

“For time cannot stop, But moments, Seconds, A fleeting smile, A kiss in the sunlight, Can live forever. -M. White”

I loved this book a lot. So beautiful, so angsty and so full of feels, ALL the FEELS! This is the first time I read a Staci Hart book and let me tell you that it won’t be my last. This author definitely has a way with words, simply beautiful. Is as if I was reading this book in slow motion, I just didn’t want it to end. I was so invested in the story and the characters, it was such a great experience. You know how much I love my second chance romances, and this one has definitely become an instant favorite.

“I'd loved him since the second I first saw him, and though time had passed, though I thought I'd buried that love, it sprang fresh the second I saw him again. The moments I kept locked away broke their chains and pressed themselves into my mind.”

This story is based on Jane Austen’s Persuasion so if you an Austen fan, you will be able to spot some similarities (and also differences) between them. This story is equal parts beautiful, equal parts heartbreaking. Elliot Marie and Wade met and fell in love when they were really young. They spend a few years together and have lots of plans for the future. An unexpected request by one of them and an unexpected answer by the other causes them to separate and go their separate ways. However, neither of them were ever the same. Omg, the angst is so much, the feels so great, you can’t help but feel for both of them from the get go!

“The first time I saw him, I was fifteen and he was sixteen, the boy with the dark shock of hair and broad shoulders, with eyes gray and cool as December and a smile as bright and warm as June.
The last time I saw him, I was seventeen, and he stood before me with tears in his eyes as he begged me to say yes. Begged me to go with him. Begged me to be his forever. Begged me to change my mind. But I couldn't. Didn't matter how much I wanted to, because I did. I would have given him the world. But in the end, it hadn't been up to me.”

Elliot’s best friend Sophie happens to be Wade’s sister. When Wade and Sophie’s dad Rick becomes terminally ill, Wade is forced to return home. And since Elliot is an integral part of the family, as she’s Sophie’s best friend and also Rick has always been her mentor, Wade is forced to face Elliot after 7 years. Let me tell you, this was quite the experience. From the moment they see each other again, you can feel the connection between them and the love they once shared. At the same time, there’s so much pain and so much hurt between them. Staci did an amazing job making me feel all these emotions that her characters were feeling. My chest was super tight the entire time.

“The boy who I walked away from lived on in the wreckage of my heart, and I never stopped wishing things had been different.”

“Elliot was a shock to my nervous system, a bucket of ice water down my back, and the clarity it brought stung all the way to my bones.”

There’s a lot going on in the book. Wade’s father’s illness plays a huge part on the story and is also beautiful and heartbreaking. At the same time, Elliot has this horrible family that I guarantee you will love to slap a few times. Elliot feels like time has gone by and her life is in a standstill. And Wade is now a soldier that has been affected by war and all the things he experienced back there. So, the road to each other’s lives for Elliot and Wade is definitely a hard one full of bumps. I believe the story was perfectly paced to accomplish that. A lot of the issues had to be resolved before they could be back together. A lot of healing and self-improvement occurs as the story goes on.

“I'd become an expert at compartmentalizing my feelings. It was the only way I survived, by stacking up dusty boxes in my heart for every hurt, packing them away in the dark. But times like these blew the dust off the tops, opening them up to free the old pain so they could do more harm in new ways.”

However, the love they have for each other is always very clear. Never for a moment did I doubt that they totally loved each other and that they deserved a second chance at happiness but they definitely had so much work to do. The exploration of what happens when couples separate and then find each other years later is one of the things I love the most second chance romances. In this story, they find out that even though they love each other and that’s undeniable, they are not the same people thy were years before, they have definitely changed. Whether that will make them stronger in the end is the real dilemma. But man is this book just full of feels.

“How could I explain that when he'd left, he'd taken me with him? How could I tell him he was all I wanted, and when he was lost to me, I lost all hope?”

“The only way I could have her was to beg for her forgiveness, apologize for pushing her, for leaving, for disappearing. But could we build on top of the wreckage of our past, or would it all fall apart, unstable and broken? There was only one way to know —I had to try.”

So let’s talk characters. My favorite character here was Elliot. I love her to pieces. I believe she was the center of the story and what made it a 5 star for me. Now, you know how I love my heroines to be strong and sassy, well Elliot is actually the opposite. She was a different kind of heroine, she was kind, silent and brave, really brave, but in a different way. In the beginning, I have to admit I was thrown off by this. She was extremely loyal to her family even when they were awful to her. A few characters throughout the story actually question her actions (or non-actions) and somehow she’s perceived as a doormat. Well, it’s her answers to those people that made me understand her and I immediately saw her in a different light.

"Braveness isn't always loud. Sometimes it's silent. There's braveness in sacrifice and kindness. It's in doing a thing that needs to be done, even though it's hard, and even though it hurts."

“It sounds like you're saying that because I don't stand up to them that I'm weak. But here's the thing —there's no point. Arguing will not change their behavior, and it helps no one, especially not me. I don't suffer very often because I don't let them hurt me. My being present is a choice. My enduring their judgment is a choice. My choice, and therein lies my power.”

Wade was a little harder for me to connect with. He was a little ambivalent and at times gave me whiplash. However, this is based on Persuasion and if you’re familiar with Austen’s heroes, they’re often infuriating! In the end, he comes through and it’s just precious. Plus, the love he has for Elliot is undeniable.

“I have been unfair and unjust. I've been resentful and angry. I've been so many things I'm ashamed of, but the one constant is that I've always been in love with you."

The secondary characters were also great and extremely well develop. Wade’s family, his dad Rick, his sisters, and his best friend Ben were incredible. Charlie, Elliot’s brother in law is another character I simply loved.

There’s definitely a lot of heartbreak and a lot of angst in this book. But there’s also lots of beautiful moments, lots of love, lots of healing. Simply put, this book was perfection. I have so many highlights I wish I could put them all in my review. Having to choose is so hard!

"I've waited for a second chance to answer this question. I've dreamed of what it would be like to give the answer I wish I had so long ago. And now I can tell you that I will follow you. I will follow you to the ends of the earth, if you'll give me your heart in exchange for mine." "My heart has been yours as long as it's been beating. It'll be yours until it beats its last."

I think Staci Hart delivered big with this book. I laughed, I smiled, I felt pain, and I also cried, tears of pain and tears of joy, and it takes a lot for a book to make me cry. Overall, although a heavy read at times, this was a fast read for me since I was totally hooked. I loved the writing, the pacing, the character development and the overall love story. If you’re in the mood for a romantic, yet heavy and full of feels second chance romance, this is definitely the book for you!

"Life is short, so short, so precious, every minute, every day. Don't let the people you love, the people who make you happy, the people who bring you joy —don't let them go. Hang on to them, even when it hurts. When it seems impossible. Hold on to the things that breathe life into you. Listen to your soul and honor what it tells you. Live. Fight for what you love. Because one day, you'll be where I am, and in that moment I want you to look back gladly, with no regrets."
