A stunning new novel about courage, hope, and learning to love against all odds. Things You Save in a Fire is a heartfelt and healing tour-de-force about the strength of vulnerability and the nourishing magic of forgiveness. Cassie Hanwell was born to handle emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she's seen her fair share of them, and she's a total pro at managing other peop;e's tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to give up her whole life and move to Boston, Cassie suddenly has an emergency of her own. The Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie's old job as it could possibly be, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren't exactly thrilled to have a "lady" on the crew.
