EXCERPT FROM REVIEW:
Breaking Sandcastles by Kirk Burris is an epic love story. This romance is one for the ages I can assure you. Set in the 1960’s this book takes you through to the past and present lives of our main characters Marion and Jonathan.
This book shows us what it is like to fall in love for the first time, how to fight for what is yours, and how real love fought against the odds. Written in the third person we are taken into this world with real life situations instead of fictitious ones. You can relate to the characters on a personal level, that it makes you a part of their world. Marion is your average girlfriend with her own insecurities about herself, about life, and ...
This was such an amazing book to read that once I had it I couldn’t put it down. Burris takes us into his world of art, beauty, and passionate love for another person. I can say that I had the absolute honor of reading this. It made me laugh, and cry, but most of all it made me appreciate love even more.

Wow! What a wonderful story. I can't remember when I've laughed and cried through a book as much as this. Super character development. I really got attached to Marion and Jonathan and enjoyed the journey so much. Marion's personal growth is a testament to love's power. I so appreciated the sense of humor the author has, and it helped break up the more serious moments. SPOILER ALERT - The end will leave you in need of tissues. I don't care how old you are or your gender, I challenge you not to cry on this one! Loved it all so much. I'm going back to read it again so I can catch all the tie-ins. Well done. Would be a great movie!! (hint-hint)

This was such a sweet and tender love story. It was so easy to fall in love with both Jonathan and Marion, both as individuals and as a couple. They are both realistic and their love story is pure and one that many, I imagine, would love to experience. The storyline flowed so well and with ease, and the descriptions were perfectly written...
What I also really liked about this book is the way it ended. Without spoilers, I found the ending to be fitting and it wonderfully tied the whole love tale beautifully.
Overall, I loved this read and I really enjoyed coming back to it each time I picked it up. I would highly recommend this to those who enjoy sweet and timeless romance.

What a great debut novel. I was drawn in right from the beginning. The characters were likable and fun. I laughed and cried. I expected a typical romance but there were enough plot twists to keep me on my toes and questions left unanswered until the very end. A very sweet story that I would highly recommend. Very reminiscent of The Notebook in its style.

There was nothing about this story that I didn't love! When tragedy strikes for Marion and Jonathan, memories take us back in time through the tale of their life long romance starting in the '60's. There is laughs, tears, and an ending that all the foreshadowing in the world could not have prepared me for. Definitely recommend for all !!

This is one fabulous book! Kirk Burris has done an incredible job with character development and tying up all the loose ends for a great conclusion.
A love story with twists and turns that keep you turning the pages. Beautifully written and flowed like a river. Pace of the story was good with no lengthy descriptions to bore you. I would definitely recommend this book!
