Title: A Firefighter’s Promise
Author: Patricia Johns
Publisher: Love Inspired
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
Each of the Love Inspired novels is an adventure for readers the moment the book is opened. Here a young boy named Christopher is recently told by his mother that he was adopted. Christopher begins to have trouble at school eventually resulting in his being expelled. His mother Rachael moves back to her hometown in the hopes that Christopher will adjust and adapt to life in a small town along with meeting the firefighter who found him in a box outside the station one rainy night seven years ago.
Rachael only has Christopher after being widowed five years prior when her firefighter husband was killed one night while on duty. Rachael knows all too well what living with a public servant is like so she shies away from any man showing interest in her who works as a firefighter. After finishing the novel, my respect and admiration for all public servants grew even though this is a fictional novel. I could see the toll it would take on any relationship or family when at any moment an emergency could pull their loved one into the line of fire.
The other issues fictionalized for readers are not the main focus, but the hope and restoration that God can bring into lives is the highlighted message. Waiting for the right moment when God brings two people together is inspiring and being together for a lifetime, though it involves work, is priceless! There are many other stories Love Inspired offers. A Firefighter’s Promise is a stand-alone novel.
