Favorite Things Thursday

This week we are sharing our favorite books, and I must say I love every book that Nicholas Sparks has wrote but I fell in love with this book when I read it. I remember thinking about it for a Week straight after reading it.

Favorite book





Description

When confronted by raging fires or deadly accidents, volunteer fireman Taylor McAden feels compelled to take terrifying risks to save lives. But there is one leap of faith Taylor can't bring himself to make: he can't fall in love. For all his adult years, Taylor has sought out women who need to be rescued, women he leaves as soon as their crisis is over and the relationship starts to become truly intimate. When a raging storm hits his small Southern town, single mother Denise Holton’s car skids off the road. The young mom is with her four-year-old son Kyle, a boy with severe learning disabilities and for whom she has sacrificed everything. Taylor McAden finds her unconscious and bleeding, but does not find Kyle. When Denise wakes, the chilling truth becomes clear to both of them: Kyle is gone. During the search for Kyle, the connection between Taylor and Denise takes root. Taylor doesn't know that this rescue will be different from all the others, demanding far more than raw physical courage. It will lead him to the possibility of his own rescue from a life lived without love and will require him to open doors to his past that were slammed shut by pain. This rescue will dare him to live life to the fullest by daring to love.

I absolutely love books by Nicholas Sparks! He's incredible at writing romance. So far I've read The Lucky One, The Last Song, and The Notebook, I'm planning to read Message in a Bottle soon. The Rescue sounds very interesting, I'll definitely read it one day! I hope they make movies based on every one of his novels, though of course, the books will always be the best. :)
