Peter Brennan carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. As Hanover Falls’ fire chief, he was responsible for the brave firefighters
who lost their lives that awful November night.
Can he ever shake the feeling that he should have somehow prevented the tragedy?
As he tries to rebuild the team at Clemens County’s Station 2, it seems he might find comfort in the arms of the woman he least expected.
My Comments: I thought this a perfect ending to the series! In the other two books, it seemed that Susan Marlowe was almost perfect. She reached out and ministered to others after her own husband died. This books shows she was flawed and had problems just like everyone else. Her life was not perfect and neither were her children. She struggles with issues like everyone else in the story – hers, however, are secret and not known to all. Pete Brennan struggled as well – not perfect – just human with human faults and frailties. I hated to see this series end, but it did so neatly and happily. Most questions were answered and I like that – not to be left hanging at the end of a series. Ms. Raney is an interesting writer capturing real human emotions. I look forward to reading more books authored by her!
