Father had me take Lysander, his fastest horse, and sent me to fetch the doctor

I honestly don't know how short the book was..but it didn't take me long to read it. I didn't realize how little was told about Peter in the series, he was very vague. This novella was beautifully written, and you got to see the side of Peter you normally don't. In the 'My Blood Approves' series, he just seems so quiet, and to himself. But it's also told in Alice's point of view. In his novella you got to learn so much about him, his past, and his love for Elise. I do wish he would have written alittle more in the present, more about meeting Alice, maybe his yearning for her. But it's good to finally know what he was exactly feeling when he met her. I'm super excited to learn there will be a fifth and final book, and his last entry makes me wonder...hmmmm. Well done Amanda!

...but I guess I didn't really know what to expect. First let me say I am team Peter all the way. Although he's mentioned less in the book than Jack I still find him much more appealing and sexy and deep and all those things. Alice is crazy to pick Jack over Peter and I'm hoping she might change her mind later on.

I guess I thought this was going to explain a little more. About how Peter felt about Alice, what he was thinking, how much he loved her, etc etc. But most of it was repetitive and sometimes a little irritating. I get that he loved Elise but did people really drone on like that back in the day?

It did explain some things like Ezra's and Peter's past as well as how Mae and Jack came in and I enjoyed that. I guess I was looking for more detail. And Elise's death seemed kind of abrupt and poorly handled by the characters and thus the author.

It didn't give me closure like I'd hoped for so I'm praying for book 5.

There was also a HUGE error in the story, well, in my opinion. There's one part where he's writing to Elise and he writes "Elise" instead of "you" - and he wasn't addressing her, he was writing about her. That frustrated me and threw off the story for the time being. I just felt like it messed with the flow and left me a little disconnected. I had to stop reading and then go back.

Also, was anyone else confused by the ending? Is Peter planning on becoming a vampire hunter with Alice and killing Gunnar and his pack?

Finally, if you've read the whole series I would recommend reading this novella and do what I did - wait until you've read all four of the series before reading this.

I know it sounds like I didn't like this, I did. It was 80% what I wanted and 20% lacking. If she can wrap up this series nicely it makes the whole thing worth reading for sure.

first, read the entire "my blood approves" series of 4 books, then read this book.

this is a short book of letters written by peter, a main character in the "mba" series. and it is a beautifully written chance to see peter in another light; he proves to be a far deeper "person", with a greater moral code than suspected. it filled in gaps in the life of the vampires, also telling us alot about ezra, another of the key players in "mba".

this little book is written so well it surprised me alot- the "mba" series was good but not exactly great writing. so this book, with the literary way it is presented, is far better at describing emotions, actions, and historical references. we really get inside the characters of peter and ezra in a way that we did not before; they go from shadows to full blown characters.

IF you have completed the "mba" series and want to go on to learn more about the history of ezra's family, this is the book. it also answers any lingering questions about peter's relationship with alice, jack and mae's beginnings in this family, and how they ended up in minnesota.

i would highly recommend this book of letters, and hope that the end does really foreshadow another "mba" book in the future. one can hope.....

I absolutely LOVE the My Blood Approves series! I have read this series at least a half a dozen times since I bought it in January! I love Jack and Alice together, but also am drawn to Peter. But ultimately I do believe that Jack and Alice are the perfect couple! I am a fan of the Vampire Diaries books and Twilight books and I must say this series blows them out of the water! I cannot say enough about this series! If you haven't read it yet- I highly recommend it!!! I wish I could give it MORE than just 5 stars! The only complaint I have is that the book Wisdom (the 4th series isn't available on Kindle and I had to order it) I really wish Amanda would come out with the final book of the series titled Swear, but from what I hear that may be a long time before it is released, if at all, according to her website. But in the mean time I recommend to anyone who loves a great vampire love story- read all the books in the series My Blood Approves, Fate, Flutter, Wisdom AND Letters to Elise - all those books in this series are great!

Letters to Elise by Amanda Hocking is the perfect novella: it gives background for a character in a way that would have been difficult in the book and fills in blanks that allow us to better understand the character, in this case, the character is Peter from her 'My Blood Approves' series. This novella tells Peter's story, starting in the mid 1800's and spans the globe from New York City, U.S. to the green grass of Ireland to the freezing cold of Russia and back to New York. During the span of time he serve in the U.S. Civil War. The story is told by letters, some mailed, some not.

A beautiful romance unfolds in the beginning of the book. It's one of the most beautiful, pure romances I've ever read, I think. Then, as happens in stories (and in life) tragedy strikes and the theme changes to grief, loss, and, in a strange way to unrequited love.

I really enjoyed reading this novella. I had not sampled Amanda Hocking's writing before this but I am now anxious to read the series of which it is a part.
