His name is Connor Ford and he falls like an angel of mercy from the sky, braving the flames to save the woman he loves but knows he cannot have. For Julia Bishop is the partner of his best friend and fellow “smoke jumper,” Ed Tully. Julia loves them both--until a fiery tragedy on Montana’s Snake Mountain forces her to choose between them, and burns a brand on all their hearts. 

In the wake of the fire, Connor embarks on a harrowing journey to the edge of human experience, traveling the world’s worst wars and disasters to take photographs that find him fame but never happiness. Reckless of a life he no longer wants, again and again he dares death to take him, until another fateful day on another continent, he must walk through fire once more...

    " PArt of what I loved most about this book was that I could totally relate to Lily as far as seeing the man she loves leave her to fight fire as it happens to me regularly. But once again a great read from A.M. "

    " Good start to a new series for me. I liked both of the main characters. I also liked the secondary ones and am eagerly awaiting to read their stories. For the full review, check out Dirty Girls Good Books on 5-7-13, or check out our other reviews that are now posted. "

    " I really liked this story line and the new series is AWESOME! The author did great research on the Smoke Jumping industry and also had every accurate info of forest fire fighting work. I will happily wait for the next book to come out I am sure it will be equally as good of a read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katherine | 5/12/2011

    " This is a book that I come back to over and over. I just love the story. Two people held apart for so long. The description of the scenery in Montana and Africa is amazing. It's just a wonderful novel. I wish Nicholas Evans would just write more like this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 5/5/2011

    " I liked the first two parts. The third part I skipped a lot because I wasn't interested in the Africa part. I loved the poem that was read at the funeral. I thought that was a very moving piece. Good story but a little too long. Some of it was not necessary. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 5/1/2011

    " I read this book in college, so it's been awhile but I remember being swept up in it. I want to re-read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrienne | 3/26/2011

    " This book would be a good beach/vacation read. It's pretty predictable but I did get a couple surprises. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/23/2011

    " The same author as Horse Whisperer: he is a great storyteller. Nothing fancy or special about his writing but I think he picks interesting subjects. It is an easy romance read and I really enjoyed it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Randy | 2/22/2011

    " Oh boy was this bad. What a jumble of settings and events. Comic book like "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 2/1/2011

    " If I could put 10 stars I would amazing story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 1/31/2011

    " This was an enjoyable read. I would like to be able to recommend it, but the book and its characters ignore the existence of God and that troubles me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angie | 1/30/2011

    " this might be a decent book, but it is a horrible audiobook. It is narrated by Luke Perry and he should never be allowed to narrate another book. Terrible job! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/20/2011

    " I equate this book to watching a very entertaining drama. Completely sucks you in to the story, isn't always totally believable, but entertaining enough to keep you picking up the book to see what happens. Great vacation read! "
