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.






First and foremost, I applaud Michelle for sharing this deep and moving story. I encourage everyone to read this book. It’s your non-traditional romance story but it is so well worth the read.

I knew jumping into this book, my heart was going to be aching and I would shed ALOT of tears. What I didn’t expect was to find the strong compassion and love filled throughout this book. This book will reach into the very depths of your soul and make you feel a love so pure and true, you can’t help but be filled by it.

I won’t go into the particulars of this story. You have to experience this book on your own. It is not an easy ready but it is an amazing journey. Tears flowed freely from my eyes and while that it made it difficult to read, I knew I had to continue on. I laughed, cried and just felt every single thing in this book.

Michelle really makes you stop and think about life and love. She makes you realize we only have one life and we need to live that life to its fullest. And when you find a love as fierce as this, you never let a day go by that you don’t cherish and revel in it.

Michelle, thank you for writing this outstanding and captivating story. This book will forever be with me and I thank you for that.

“Fill your jar. As long as your jar is full, your life will never be empty. And every chance you get, put your face in the sun, and show the wind how to fly.”
