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.

    "Taylor needed to go to a therapist"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Send Taylor to a therapist immediately.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not. It would be too sappy. And I was mostly annoyed with Taylor.

    "It's ok."

    "Not one of Sparks' better stories"

    Didn't like it much. Too dull. So so story line. Could have been better. Boring.

    "Boring story & annoying narration"

    I have nothing good to say about this book. As soon as it started I was PRAYING that the man reading the acknowledgements was NOT going to being reading the whole book. His voice was beyond annoying. But alas, he was the narrator. I decided to forge ahead anyway. It is boring. Not once was I ever concerned with what would happen. The main character was whiny. The kids dialect aggravating. I made it about halfway through and then asked for a refund.

    "I hate One Book!"

    I cannot listen to this Sparks novel because One Book has over ridden it and will not let me proceed. I would not use such a busted app if you paid me to! Please remove it and let me listen to my downloaded books in peace!

    "Enthralling and Refreshing"

    Loved the characters and the story was beautiful. Super sad when a dear character has to go. Yet another winner by Sparks!!

    Story
    "This is a Good One!"

    This isn't Nicolas Sparks best, but I haven't listened to one I didn't like from him.
    The narrator did a fantastic job with this book, especially with the interpretation of the little boy, which is so important to a book being a success.
    I like the story and it was an easy listen and it ended up with a lot of emotion. Of course I was hoping it would end well. Sparks always has a clincher and he did it again.
    I liked this book and would recommend it to any Nicholas Sparks fan.
