Pocketful of Sand
by M. Leighton
“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.

I can’t breathe! M. Leighton has written a book that has absolutely wrenched every ounce of emotion from the depth of my soul. Pocketful of Sand is that book.
What do you do when your worst nightmare comes true. You run. You run far enough away that you think your living nightmare will never find you and hurt you or the ones you love again. You stay to yourself and focus all your energy on the ones you love. And you never dream of a day that will be any different.
I’ve lived those days. That’s how I find myself so lost in this book that is may take me some time to recover once again. M. Leighton has written with such feeling and the characters are so real it feels like I’ve been living their lives since I started reading it.
And then . . . she gives you a choice. Happily-Ever-After? More? You get to choose how the story ends for you. Being the person that I am, I chose door number two, and a chance for more of these characters and more of this story. I hope I’ll get to meet you all there!
I highly recommend you read Pocketful of Sand by M. Leighton. I give it five steaming-hot cups of Room With Books coffee!
