“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.

Pocketful of Sand takes us on a journey of loss, love, fear, heartache, and redemption. It all begins when Eden and her daughter Emmy move to a new town. Eden knows it's best to stay away from people, and she sets out to do that, until she meets Cole from a distance. Cole has been through a lot, and now he can't seem to stay away from Eden even though he really wants to. These two embark on a very emotional journey, where neither one is really sure which way to go.
This book was pretty interesting. I didn't think it was bad, but it wasn't great either. I liked both of the main characters, and was really able to feel their heartache and loss through out the story. There were just a few things that bugged me though. Like Cole's technical relationship status, and some other things about how Eden handled her past. I just didn't like certain things about how it happened, or how other things were handled. So, overall this one was okay. It was a nice emotional read.
