Publisher's Summary

When confronted by raging fires or deadly accidents, volunteer fireman Taylor McAden feels compelled to take terrifying risks to save lives. But there is one leap of faith Taylor can't bring himself to make: He can't fall in love. Then, one day, a raging, record-breaking storm hits his small Southern town. Denise Holton, a young single mother, is driving through it when her car skids off the road. With her is her four-year-old son, Kyle. Unconscious and bleeding, she - not Kyle - is found. And when she wakes, the chilling truth becomes clear to both of them: Kyle is gone.
During the search for Kyle, the connection, the lifeline, between Taylor and Denise takes root. Taylor doesn't know that this rescue will lead him to the possibility of his own rescue from a life lived without love. That it will dare him to live life to the fullest by daring to love.

Can't put down story!

Sparks does it again with a story you can't put down until you find out what happens. As you read the book you start to care a lot about the people in the story and what happens to them. There is excitement, mystery, and romance (without the trash).

Simplistic, light listening.

The narrator is good, the story is fine. It is simplistic, but once in a while it is good to just listen light.

A tug at the heart strings

Nicholas Sparks created a beautiful story with brilliant flow and. perfect ending, despite having me worried for a while how it might end. the characters were refreshingly real. The narrator brought them to life wonderfully. My favourite Sparks novel to date.
