Release Day Review:The Empty Jar by M. Leighton

THE EMPTY JAR IS LIVE!  And what better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than with a book like this, a poignant tale about the power of love.  This is what readers are saying about the new story from M. Leighton:

“The ultimate love story.”
“It is a masterpiece.”
“Heartbreaking. Hopeful. Brilliant.”
“Hands down the best book I have ever read.”
“If I could only tell you to read one book this year, it would be this book.”
“After today, life as I know it will be ‘AEJ’, after The Empty Jar. I will not be the same.”

This personal note is something the author asked that we share with you:


This book is not a romantic fairy tale. Yet, it’s the most romantic story I’ve ever told.  It’s a journey of pain and loss, of hope and happiness.  It’s both achingly tragic and exquisitely beautiful.  It’s a love story.  A true love story about real love. The kind that sees you through the night and holds you when you cry. The kind that won't give up and never lets go. The kind we all dream about and few find. But it’s real. I promise you, it’s real. I’ve seen this kind of love, and I've seen this kind of heartbreak. I got to see it up close and personal, and quite honestly, I will never be the same.  I hope it changes you as much as it changed me.

The Empty Jar

Three months touring Europe.
Romantic.  Dazzling.  Unforgettable.
The trip of a lifetime.

But some lifetimes are shorter…

We couldn’t have known it would work out this way.  No one could.  No one could’ve guessed that something so beautiful could be so tragic.

But it is tragic.
Yet so, so beautiful.

That’s what sacrifice is—beauty and tragedy.
It’s pain and suffering for something or someone you love.

And this is the ultimate sacrifice.
One stunning act of true love.

This is our story.

Our true love story.

What I thought about The Empty Jar

The Empty Jar is a beautiful and very emotional love story between Nate and Lena.  What makes this book special is that it's focus isn't on how their story began, but more how their story develops.  I've been wanting a book about how love evolves over the course of a relationship, and this story did just that.

I can't really talk about the plot without spoiling things, but I will say this is a book that will touch you. It will wring some emotions from you and make you cry.  If you are in the mood for something like that, this book is for you.  That's not to say it's not about love. Because it is. Very deep, forever kind of love.

M. Leighton took a real chance in writing The Empty Jar. The realism of the circumstances, especially those most of us will face at one point in our lives will not appeal to everyone. It's not your typical romance, but it's very much about love. If you like to examine the many emotions of love and aren't afraid to shed a tear or ten over characters in a book, I think you'll like this story very much.  I know I did.
