From Our Editors

Volunteer fireman Taylor McAden never shrinks from danger, yet there is one risk he refuses to take: falling in love. Then he meets Denise Holden, a single mother who's moved to the small town of Edenton, North Carolina, to start a new life. A close brush with death in a car accident bring Taylor and Denise together. First, Taylor must delve into his past to learn whether it's too late to gamble on the future in Nicholas Sparks' stirring The Rescue.

Employee Review

For his fourth book, Sparks seems to have gone back to the formula that worked so well with The Notebook. Taylor is dedicated to saving lives, but cannot let himself get close enough to anyone to have one of his own. Denise is a single Mom who is devoted to her son to the exclusion of living her own life. The two meet in tragic circumstances, and end up battling each others demons with mixed results. A good story with likable characters, although I didn't feel as swept up in the story as I did with The Notebook.
