"His name is Connor Ford and he falls like an angel of mercy from the sky, braving the flames to save the woman he loves but knows he cannot have. For Julia Bishop is the partner of his closest friend, Ed Tully, an ambitious young musician. Julia loves them both but the tragedy on Snake Mountain forces her to choose between them and burns a brand on all their hearts." "With his blond, blue-eyed looks and laconic cowboy charm, Connor is the only child of a Montana rancher and a rodeo queen. Until that fateful day, he has been happy to spend his winters nurturing a career as a photographer and his summer vacations with Ed, "smoke jumping" - being dropped by parachute to fight remote forest fires." "In the wake of the fire, he embarks on a journey to the dark heart of human suffering, traveling the world's worst wars and disasters to take photographs that find him fame but never happiness. Reckless of a life he no longer wants, again and again he dares death to take him, until another fateful day on another continent, he must walk through fire once more."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

An absolutely stunning read. Reeled me in right from the very first sentence and kept me thinking hard long after i turned the final page. This extremely moving book had me in tears.

Great read. Could not put it down. If you did not feel the same way... your loss. P.S. PERFECT ending:)
