Elliot was an interesting heroine to read. She's surrounded by awful people and just seems to accept that this is her lot in life. Her sisters, her father are honestly just some of the worst people a person could ever be stuck with and it immediately brought an underlying sadness to the book. Despite this, Elliot is kind to them and helps them with their personal lives. I loved that she had a refuge in Sophie as well as in her workplace WASTED WORDS(!) as it helped Elliot not be too heavy a character to deal with.
Wade on the other hand was a bit of a douche. Idk if that's just sticking to the Jane Austen model (after Darcy it doesn't seem like that much of a stretch, although I do feel like Jane Austen was trying to tell us something) or if it's been heightened a bit more for this book but whilst I never hated him, his actions were not agreeable. His relationship with his sisters was mostly a nice touch and I did like how he got it together in the end. By the final chapter I definitely didn't think my douche comments so that was
Wade and Elliot together definitely made for an intriguing couple. Despite their love of each other being clear as day, they encountered so many obstacles before finally being able too get to a good place. Overall, the feeling that this book left me with was one of a story well told from beginning to end.
Mild spoiler alert: there are poems at the beginning of each chapter and I love them all.
Rating: 4 stars
Elliot is a writer and a live-in nanny for her nieces and nephews. She is kind and generous to a fault. Wade is a military man, brother to Elliot's best friend, and Elliot's former fiance. "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." Fate forces Elliot and Wade to spend weeks together, which is painful and uncomfortable for them both. Can they reconcile and rekindle what they once had? Or will they part ways and once again live with regrets for what could have been?
The plot was riveting, and I read the book straight through in one day. I just had to know what would happen between Elliot and Wade. The characters were complex and immediately likable, especially Elliot, although at times I was very angry with Wade.The author dealt tactfully with the very difficult topics of love and loss.
This was my first book by Staci Hart, but it certainly won't be my last! Once I'm over my massive book hangover, I will definitely be downloading more of her books!
A Book Lover's Emporium
The first is because of how this author handled a parents death. It was real and painful, yet beautiful and poignant at the same time. Having gone through it myself I thought the author handled it wonderfully.
Secondly, the author handles a soldier coming home and readjusting to life well. I loved Wade's character arc. This story is mainly about him and I loved seeing hi let love in again.
Sophie and Sadie were great characters. To see how they all dealt with grief was heartbreaking but comparing it to the coldness of Elliot's family made the contrast even more stark.
Elliot was the only character that I felt took away from the novel. So much was out into wade and his family that I just wish we saw more emotion from Elliot. Her grief is written about but she is such a stoic character that you never really see it.
Her and Wade's story is one of second chances and it truly is a beautiful one.
A Thousand Letters is so beautifully written, not only with the main story which is so real and so raw, but with the extra details like the poetry and the imagery. I felt every emotion along side Wade and Elliot and this angst filled rollercoaster had me in tears. I was captivated from the first page and desperate to find out if Wade and Elliot could find their way to their HEA. I love Staci Hart's books, but I really was blown away by this poetic masterpiece.
