This handsome firefighter makes a living coming to the rescue, but Gin doesn't need a man to fight her battles.
After Raine's dad walked out, Ginevieve Lightly never lived in one place too long, a rambling lifestyle that defined her daughter's youth. When their car dies in Banister Falls, Wisconsin, Gin promises Raine they can stay until she finishes her senior year of high school. Gin will do anything to make sure her daughter has a bright future . . . a future that's compromised when Raine reveals she's pregnant.
Dan Moretti has only ever called Banister Falls home. After losing his best friend in a tragic accident, Dan devoted himself to responding to fires, rescuing the helpless, and guiding Cody Bennett, his best friend's son, through life. With Cody being the epitome of the good kid, it was an easy job. Until he says four little words: "The baby is mine."
Knowing gossip of Raine's pregnancy will erupt sooner or later in the small town, Gin's reflex is to grab the suitcase and escape to a new city, a new life. But with each passing day, Gin's feet stay rooted in Banister Falls, and she falls a little more for this local firefighter who shows her not all men abandon women at the first sign of smoke.
As Gin and Dan do the best they can to guide the two teenagers through their early entry into adulthood, they discover together that romance can bloom in the rockiest of situations. And God can turn the pieces of a broken past into a beautiful new beginning.
About the author:Kathryn Springer is a USA Today bestselling author. She grew up in northern Wisconsin, where her parents published a weekly newspaper. As a child she spent many hours sitting at her mother's typewriter, plunking out stories, and credits her parents for instilling in her a love of books --- which eventually turned into a desire to tell stories of her own. Kathryn has written nineteen books with close to two million copies sold. She lives with her husband and three children in Marinette, Wisconsin.
I started this book one night intending to just read the first chapter, and before I knew it I was halfway through the book - it is that good! I was immediately hooked on the story and completely involved in the characters' lives. Kathryn is an amazing author as she has the ability to hook the reader right away with not only the storyline, but by creating such real-life believable characters as well and writing in such a way that their emotions can be felt by the reader. I found myself connecting with all of the characters, even Evie, whom I struggled with liking at times. I love how Kathryn will go back in time in some of the chapters providing background information as far as Gin's growing up years and why she has raised Raine the way she has and why she is so quick to want to pack up and flee. Also, learning the history between Dan and Evie added so much to the story as well as they were best friends along with Evie's deceased husband, yet there are other feelings that have always been there as well. I highly recommend this book as it is sweet romance along with heart-wrenching issues and this is a story and characters that will stay with you long after you finish reading the book.
