“She’s beauty for my ashes. And I’m hope for her heartache.”—Cole Danzer
I don’t know what makes a great love story. Is it that instant attraction when boy meets girl? The passionate kisses and the fairy-tale ending? Or is it a lifetime of tragedy, paid in advance, for a few stolen moments of pure bliss? The pain and the suffering that, in the end, you can say are worth it for having found the missing piece of your soul?
The answer is: I don’t know. I don’t know what makes a great love story. I only know what makes my love story. I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thing that saved me. That saved us. He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole. If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine…ours is the greatest of them all.
Contains material that some may find disturbing. Not intended for readers under the age of 18.

♥MY REVIEW♥ by Colleen
M. Leighton has been one of my favorite authors since I read Down to You years ago. Her characters and stories become more then just words on a page, they become real and end up owning a piece of your heart. Pocketful of Sand proved to me yet again why I always return to Michelle’s books, time and again.
The tale of Cole and Eden is not a typical love story. Both characters have seen their share of despair, sorrow, and loss, their hearts broken and souls shattered. Yet when they find each other, they seem to find the good in the world again…and the good in themselves. The unbelievable torment that Cole and Eden had endured in their lives before they knew one another was astounding. They are kindred spirits in loss, but together they rise above what anchors them to their despair.
This book needs to be read. It teaches that from despair comes hope, from torment comes understanding, and from loss, love. Eloquent and lovely, a beautiful story from start to finish.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author M. Leighton is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you’ll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren’t roaming in that direction, she’ll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.
