Things You Save in a Fire by Katherine Center
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is one of my favorite books this year. It has a few layers to it. The story of a mother seeking to make amends with a daughter she left behind when she left her marriage. The story of a female firefighter trying to make her way in a job she loves but one that is primarily male dominated. And then the story of two young firefighters finding romance. I love Cassie. She is so strong, brave and flawed. I don’t want to go into details because the story is so good, I want you to read the book. If I start talking about the things that touched me, what made me angry, what made me laugh and what made me sigh, happily, I know I will tell too much. If you have a book club, you definitely want this book on the list. There is so much to discuss! If you aren’t in a book club, read it and send me a message. I’ll discuss it with you. Or find a buddy reader. Just read this book. It is one of the most interesting books I have read this year.
I read an advanced reader’s copy that I won. My understanding is that a discussion guide will be available online. I will be looking for that. I keep a notebook just to write down my answers and thoughts. I find that entertaining. I probably should find a local book club but, as an introvert, this fits me. Put this book on your TBR and look for it’s release in August.
