Book Description:

While passionately in love with his wife Katie, Andy also loves being a firefighter and when he is diagnosed with cancer, his whole world is turned upside down. What seemed so certain only days before, is now an unknown. Andy tries to protect Katie by not telling her, but her fears, and his increasing pain and moodiness only succeed in fueling a growing divide between them.

The fire station and its comradery are Andy’s refuge, but station officer Lt. Mike Bentley wages a vendetta against Andy, only making Andy more determined not to reveal weakness of any kind. In spite of Bentley, the C shift crew rallies to support Andy until events take a downward turn.

Firefighters face a myriad of dangers but invisible dangers can pose the greatest threat of all. Will courage, duty and even love be enough to save Andy from this unseen threat? If the worst should happen, would his greatest legacy be the love of the fire service or his love for his wife? Time can only tell because in the end, the unforeseen might have the greatest impact of all.

My Review

BROTHERHOOD BY FIRE by Lindy Bell was a very well-written fiction book that I had a great time reading. This book was different from any book I had ever read before as not only was the main character a firefighter it focused on the firefighter as a person and not as a part of a crime drama or a murder mystery. I really felt for Andy as he struggled with both his cancer and his choice to keep it a secret from both his wife and his fire station crew. My sympathy and interest in Andy kept me turning page after page as I had to find out how Andy's battle with cancer and his relationships with those close to him would end. It was quite simply an amazing book that I am so very glad I decided to read.  

Note: I would like to apologize to anyone who was left waiting for my review. I had set it to automatically publish as I was away during my review date and it did not publish like it was supposed to. I am very sorry that this happened.
