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.




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.

5 “Blaze of Glory” Stars!!!

Wow, just wow!! My review could NEVER do this story justice. Michelle Leighton has written a story so filled with emotion that even the meanest of people couldn’t help but shed a tear over Nate and Lena’s beautifully tragic story.

“Fate sometimes makes different plans. And most of the time, she can’t be reasoned with.”

I started this story thinking, how bad can it be? I will cry a few tears and enjoy a great story. Because I knew it would have to be great if written by Michelle Leighton. But, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. This story will change your life!!! It will drag your emotions through the ringer while also warming your heart. I cried! I laughed! I cried! I smiled! I swooned! And I cried some more!!! Not ugly cries, but just those kinds of tears that leak out from all moments finally building up and spilling over. Just like Nate and Lena, this girl couldn’t take but so much of the ups and downs. Hence the spilling of a few tears.

“I love you. Today. Tomorrow. Always.”

This story is unlike anything this author has ever written, and also unlike anything I have ever read. You literally feel every emotion Lena and Nate go through. The writing COULD NOT have been any better. After reading the last page, I felt like I needed to applaud the author. And hug her!! I want to thank her for such an eye opener on what really matters in life.

“I’m going to lose my wife. My soul mate. My partner in crime. The very air I breathe. I’m going to lose her, and there is nothing I can do about it.”

I know there will be some who will think this story is too deep or too sad. But it really isn’t!! There is so much happiness to this story! It’s about life. About what’s important. Life is making hard decisions and living with what life gives you.

Alright, I will shut up now, but my last few words to you all are….READ THIS BOOK!!!
