Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It’s June 1970. As the low country of South Carolina burns in a seven-month drought, Cassie Johnson longs for escape: both from her husband, Peck, the town’s newly promoted fire chief, who seems more interested in saving everyone else’s life than in living his own, and from the low country marshes where Cassie has never quite felt at home. But as Peck and Cassie drift apart, their teenage daughter, Kelly, finds herself torn between her parents and her desperate need for normalcy. It will take a tumultuous journey back to the North Carolina mountains before Cassie can begin to understand the complicated love that resides, unrecognized, deep in her heart.

From a masterly voice in Southern fiction, The Fireman’s Wife is an emotionally bare and moving novel about one woman’s struggle to do what’s right–for her family, for her love, and for herself.

Synopsis:

After fifteen years of marriage, Cassie Johnson is feeling the stresses and strains of her relationship with Peck, the town's newly appointed fire chief, as the time he spends saving others and Cassie's attraction to one of his colleagues could doom their lives together, in a novel set in South Carolina's low country in 1970. Original. 25,000 first printing.
