    Reader ´ The Fireman's Wife A Novel ✓ Paperback The Fireman's Wife A NovelThis is a book about choices and regrets It's about not leaving things unsaid I didn't realize how much I was into this book until about 34 of the way through when the really dramatic thing happens I'm definitely not going to give it away here At that point I realized that I really had developed a connection to the characters to the point that I was almost in tears reading about their pain

    Reader ´ The Fireman's Wife A Novel ✓ Paperback The Fireman's Wife A NovelThis book didn't excite me until the final third of the book and I wish the energy that was there at the end of the book was portrayed throughout the entirety of the book Cassie and Peck both had their own separate storylines as well as a storyline together and I found myself longing for within their shared storyline I realize that the author's intent was to have Cassie find herself and put her pieces back together but I could only stand reading Cassie's point of view towards the end To me Peck was such a loveable character and I was rooting for him throughout the book and Cassie was not a character I loved Also I wi

    Reader ´ The Fireman's Wife A Novel ✓ Paperback The Fireman's Wife A NovelSet in the summer of 1970 this is a story that could easily be set in present day as the themes presented are universal and undeniably real Told in alternating perspectives of husband and wife it tells the story of a marriage ultimately threatening to fall apart after 15 years of struggle to keep it alive This novel was easy to read yet did indeed feel very realistic to me with nothing seemingly black white but taking into account all the complicated feelings associated with a marriage resulting from an unplanned pregnancy and the necessity to do the right thing bringing two people together from very different geographical moral upbringings ultimately forcing one to make sacrifices in order to make the marriage survive Though the character of Cassie is difficult to sympathize with the feelings portrayed by her character are undeniably true to life But not only does this novel explore the marriage relationship between the two main characters it also explores the rol

    Reader ´ The Fireman's Wife A Novel ✓ Paperback The Fireman's Wife A NovelI'm rarely interested in books where affairs are involved I know life doesn't come in neat little packages but adultery just doesn't fit into the literary places I like to escape I gave up trying to give this book a chance when the main character agrees to go away with her boyfriend before even considering what it will do to her teenage daughter You don't get to be that selfish for the sake of being selfish when you have kids There were no signs of abuse up to the point that I uit reading; that would have changed my opinion greatlyLife's short and my to read list is long I'm moving on to better things
