What makes a classic inspirational romance? It’s more than just the presence of a standard firefighting hero or optimistic heroine. The men and women are flawed humans, sympathetic and realistic in their actions. Plot twists and scenes are so engrossing the reader feels compelled to reread the pages. The author illustrates what love is, before the characters recognize it themselves, in an almost aching way. Finally, a faith lesson is taught in a fresh manner and stands the test of time. In Falling for the Fireman, Allie Pleiter has written an engrossing classic love story in such a clear, bold, emotional manner, a reader is swept along as strength is found, pain is healed and love grows.
Jeannie Nelworth is as human a mother and heroine as can be found. She faces fears with a shield of sunny optimism and hides the burden of pain from too much loss. Firefighter Chad Owen has his own pain to hide and recognizes other hurting souls in Jeannie and her son, Nick, who have lost more than their home in a fire. Chad and Jeannie’s interactions are poignant and beautifully written. But it is also Chad’s growing love and empathy for Nick that makes this story so special. More than a keeper, Falling for the Fireman is a classic.
