There was a time in my life when the light within me shined so brightly. At some point I lost it. I lost me. Life used to course through my veins like an out of control wildfire, unstoppable and infectious. Time was supposed to heal, but all it did was slowly strip me down to an empty vessel void of passion, desire, and drive. I wanted to scream, “Be the one to save me,” but my soul was drained, my heart was shattered, and time had siphoned the life out of me.
A Firefighter’s Flame took a much different route than I expected. When I was first started this ARC I initially thought, “ooh! Hot fireman!, this book is going to have a lot of steam!” but it wasn’t like that. It was much MORE.
This story dives into several different themes that people can relate to in everyday life: love, loss, faith, betrayal, trust, and regret.
The main character, Lennox, is the wife of a firefighter and is quite like most of us individuals. She endures many similar struggles that we do and her inner dialogues are so very genuine and realistic to most of the crossroads and obstacles that we all come across at some point.
The only difference that separates Lennox from many is her battle with depression and a manic disorder.
I, myself, like Lennox, have battled a long dealing with depression and know from personal experience that it is not a walk in the park.
I could ramble on about this but I think this book is more of a read it for yourself because it was that worth of a read!
It was such a privilege to see Lennox bloom from teenager into an adulthood while battling this illness of hers and seeing her grow, fall in love, make decisions, take chances while trying to rediscover and find herself.
A DEFINITE MUST READ that packs a lot of great feelings and emotions and most importantly…HEART!
