Goodreads:   Sean Magee is a firefighter—a hero who risks his own life to save others, running into dangerous situations few have the courage to dare. While fighting a horrific blaze, Sean becomes trapped by flames and is nearly overcome by smoke. Just when it seems that all is lost, he’s led to a window—by what he swears is divine intervention. And then he jumps . . . 

. . . into a new life. For years, Sean has shut down his feelings, existing in a state of emotional numbness. Coming through that fire, he knows that he can no longer be that man whose his heart is closed to the world. But before he can face his future, he must confront his past and everyone in it: the family, the friends, the woman—and the love—he carelessly left behind.

Kritters Thoughts:  Written from a man's point of view, Sean Magee is a firefighter who right at the beginning is faced with tragedy and decides to take this opportunity to turn his life into a second chance.  He has things in his past that he wants to make right, but must get through both physical and emotional therapy to be able to successfully confront his things from the past.

As mentioned above, told from a male's point of view, I loved it.  It was different and I liked different.  Although weird to read from a male who would tend to get a little emotional at times, I appreciated reading it.  I loved seeing the people that surrounded him during his tragedy and after and how he was able to help them heal in ways as they were helping him heal.  

A great book about second chances and using each moment to live life to the fullest was a nice reminder about setting the right priorities.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
