Publisher's Summary

The fire that was to change so many lives started with a single shaft of lightning. It struck on a still and moonless night and cocooned for a while in the heart of an ancient pine. The woman camped nearby with her group of troubled teenagers slept on, hearing nothing. But one among them would be lost forever. For soon the pupa of fire would hatch and engulf the entire mountain. Into this inferno will come the Smoke Jumper. His name is Connor Ford, and he braves the flames to save the woman he loves but knows he cannot have.

Wonderful!

Nicholas Evans is one of my favourite writers and this is probably my favourite Evans novel. Pure poetry. The narrator is wonderful.

Fast paced, hugely entertaining, beautifully written! I cried, laughed and needed to brace myself for some chapters, but could not put it down!!

Loved it and got sucked in the story from the first chapter and finished it less than two days.

Great story and not what you expect.

I really enjoyed how this story progressed and how it was not what I first expected.

Great sensitive story on human and nature

This is a great story about friends that love nature , love the same women and fight against fire. these people are fighting against human cruelty and for small good things to give kids better life.

Epic story

After a heart-stopping first chapter the book slows its pace and gradually builds up a picture of the main characters and their lives. There's perhaps a little too much about smoke-jumping in the middle of the book, but after that the story takes off and one feels by the end that one has been witness to an epic story.

What a ride...

Well, I am glad that I ignored the dull blurb that accompanied this audio book, and took a chance on it because I have enjoyed other books by Nicholas Evans. It sounded like a bland, uninspired romance. It couldn't have been further from it. I usually enjoy Evans transporting me to beautiful Montana, but in this novel he took me across the globe too, and I loved it.

Great Story. Narrators female voices grated on me.

Im not a fan of the narrators voices for the women in the story. Made Julia sound feeble minded. So I nearly didn't get into it, luckily the story was good & kept pulling me back in.
