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.

    "Good all the way through!"

    Great book. A little slow at times. I normally cry many times through N.S. books but managed to only cry at the end.

    "boring!"

    i love Nicolas sparks but this is not on top my list. it was unnecessarily descriptive. He should consider readers intelligent and just get to point.

    Story
    "The storyline was "ok" at best."

    It wasn't great, that's for sure. I was disappointed because, unlike the other Sparks books I've read/listened to, I never fell in love with the characters. I listened, waiting for something to ignite... it never did. However, I think the narrator was partially, if not fully to blame. The male character was supposed to be 36, and the woman 29. The narrator's voice was that of a nasally older man, which threw off my perception of the characters. His voice wasn't strong enough to portray a masculine firefighter. It almost made me dislike the characters, which is never good. The story ended and I pressed stop. No tears, no wishing I could hear more... unlike the last book I listened to by Sparks, "Two by Two." Now THAT book was amazing.

    "The Rescue"

    A love story of two people who found each other because of an accident and how their love grew. And the story of a young child and how he learned to speak because of a very dedicated mother.
