Cole Taylor is a full time firemen, a part time husband, and sometimes a dad. Until a fire that changes his whole life.
Cole is hurt in the line of duty while trying to save someone’s life. While dealing with recovering from the injury Cole is faced with major life struggles. His wife, Megan, leaves him taking the kids along. He doesn’t get along with his in-laws and his friends seem to be at a distance now.
While Megan is staying at her sisters Tom, her dad, talks to Cole about his girls going astray. Cole doesn’t know the extent of what’s going on up there… Then there comes another call. This time Cole and Tom are on it together. During the fire Tom makes the choice to save Cole and a child, instead of himself. Cole must travel to his sister in laws to break the news to her, and his wife.
Cole finds the real meaning of the word ‘Christian,’ a real one, means to love as Jesus loved. You cant pick and choose who to be nice to or who to forgive. You have to do that for everyone. No matter the pain they’ve caused you.
He also finds out how to truly make a marriage work. Without putting God in it, and making Him first above all, you have nothing but two people. He is the key to making it all work!
If you cant tell, I loved this book. I also cried and cheered through many parts. I will read anything I can get my hands on by TK Chapin. Why am I just now discovering him? These books should jump to the top of list when looking up Christian Romance, or Suspense(Right by Dee Henderson and Karen Kingsbury). He is truly talented, and will bring many Christians on a closer walk with God. If you don’t believe, you will still enjoy Amongst the Flames. And may come out with a better understanding of how many of us think.
