This is how author T.K. Chapin describes his book Amongst The Flames.
“A burning building doesn’t scare me at all compared to the thought of losing you.”
Firefighter Cole Taylor is the man everyone looks up to at Firehouse 9 in downtown Spokane. He’s been at the department for ten years and has no fear when it comes to dangerous situations.
Megan Taylor, Cole’s wife, is a stay-at-home mother of their two boys. She was everything Cole ever wanted in a woman and the perfect wife any man could ask for until one day when she decides to leave Cole.
Cole has fought hundreds of fires in his lifetime, but he had never tasted fear until he came to fighting a fire in his own home. Amongst The Flames is a Christian firefighter fiction that tackles real-life situations and problems that exist in Christian marriages today. It brings with it passion, love and spiritual depth that will leave you feeling inspired.
I did not know I was a firefighter until I read this book, then I finished and realized I have never been a firefighter. I found the story to be enjoyable and painful at the same time. Maybe it is because I could identify with Cole’s thoughts and blissful ignorance. I felt every emotion that Cole felt, including having very sweaty eyes at a couple of points in the story. No spoiler here. (Note to self: find a manly synonym for crying.)
As Cole and I learned, there is no magic pill to fix a marriage that is burning down. It takes a change of heart and a lot of work.
Author Chapin has received many positive reviews of his story. This is one more. I give this book 5/5 stars because it is well written in many ways, for one example, he kept the POV purely Cole’s in the entire book. I found only one homonym spelling error and one excessive article.
