I preserve legacies...

So begins the story of Jessica Weaver—wife, mother, and fire archeologist. Preserving Yosemite National Park's natural and cultural resources is Jessica's job. Preserving her family's legacy is her obsession. But when she discovers her husband's infidelity, betrayal’s flames threaten her family and all she's fought to protect.

Haley Weaver, a sophomore in high school, is a daddy's girl. As she enters the throes of first love, timid yet intrigued, Haley also discovers her father's affair. Stunned and broken, Haley flees into the wilds of Yosemite National Park. If she can't trust her father, how can she trust her boyfriend—or even love itself?

When wildfire breaks out and Haley is missing, Jessica fears the worst. In a race against time, she searches for her daughter as she deals with the magnitude of what her husband's affair may cost her family. How can she go on if she doesn’t find Haley in time?

And what will Jessica do to preserve the legacy that matters most?

My Thoughts:

I felt like I was reading part of my life as I read Flames. I saw myself in Jessica and my daughter in Haley. The pain that Ginny expressed in the book is real, and it is horrible. The only way that I got through it was with God. I'd still be a big angry mess if not for Him.
The characters were real, as were their feelings. Watching the characters deal with everything happening to them was encouraging, in that if they could do it so could you.
This is a great book and highly recommended!


 
The opportunity to write is the fulfillment of a life-long dream. Through the tumultuous years of my childhood, I lost myself in the stories I read. There, in the world of fiction, I escaped the trauma I faced and found a place of safety and rest. Now, I’m the one writing the stories that I hope provide a place of rest for others. - See more at: http://ginnyyttrup.com/meet-ginny/#sthash.GEBHiUyi.dpuf
