  • Things You Save in a Fire #ARC Review


    From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new novel about courage, hope, and learning to love against all odds.
    Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she's seen her fair share of them, and she's a total pro at other people's tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to give up her whole life and move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own.
    The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie's old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren't exactly thrilled to have a "lady" on the crew—even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the infatuation-inspiring rookie, who doesn't seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can't think about that. Because love is girly, and it’s not her thing. And don’t forget the advice her old captain gave her: Never date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping...and it means risking it all—the only job she’s ever loved, and the hero she’s worked like hell to become.
    Katherine Center's Things You Save in a Fire is a heartfelt and healing tour-de-force about the strength of vulnerability, the nourishing magic of forgiveness, and the life-changing power of defining courage, at last, for yourself.

    Review


    There is a moment in Cassie's life that simply defines her existence so far. Something from the past that deeply marked her and made her the warrior she is today. She is very well suited to her work as a firefighter, and is seen by everyone as an extremely competent and ethical professional. But the past comes back to haunt her and  force to redefine her goals. When her mother calls for her help and a situation gets her down, she drops everything she has built and go to face a new team of firefighters who do not quite accept a female figure among them.

    Willing to prove her competence, she goes out of her way to assert herself in this masculine environment until she meets sweet Owen and is illuminated by this aura of joy that captivates everyone around him.

    As they are both new to the station, she is assigned to train the guy and this proximity will generate many conflicts in her mind.

    I loved the plot and the way Cassie's story was conducted, even though I thought the writer put a lot of strong drama into the lives of the main characters. A book about forgiveness, second chances, learning from the past and fighting for the future. A book about the power of love.
    4/5 stars

    Resenha

    Existe um momento da vida de Cassie que simplesmente define toda a sua vida até agora. Algo do passado que a marcou profundamente e a tornou a guerreira que é hoje. Ela está muito bem adaptada em seu trabalho de bombeiro, sendo vista por todos como uma profissional extremamente competente e ética. Mas o passado volta para assombrá-la e redefinir suas metas. Quando sua mãe telefona pedindo sua ajuda e uma situação a deixa em maus lençóis, ela larga tudo que construiu e vai enfrentar uma nova equipe de bombeiros que não aceitam muito bem uma figura feminina entre eles.

    Disposta a provar sua competência, ela faz de tudo para se afirmar neste meio masculino até conhecer o doce Owen e ser iluminada por esta aura de alegria que cativa todos a volta dele.

    Como ambos são novatos na estação, ela fica designada a treinar o rapaz e essa proximidade vai gerar muitos conflitos em sua mente.

    Amei a trama e a forma como foi conduzida a história de Cassie, mesmo tendo achado que a escritora colocou muito drama forte na vida dos personagens principais.  Um livro sobre perdão, segundas chances, aprender com o passado e lutar pelo futuro . Um livro sobre a força do amor.
    4/5 estrelas.
