Aiden had the perfect life. A job he loved, a beautiful son and loving wife. In an instant everything is taken from him and Aiden assumes his life is over. Falling into a deep depression Aiden has all but given up on his job, his friends and himself. But when a mysterious force gives him the power to heal those around him, Aiden is forced to pull himself out of his depression in favor of the greater good. When he meets Ryan, a young woman living on the streets, and Norma, a woman whose marriage is crumbling around her, Aiden acknowledges that maybe his life still has a purpose and his ability to heal maybe more powerful then he may ever imagined.
The Fire Inside is a well-developed story that is focused on three characters whose lives become interconnected. Like real life, what connects these individuals is their pain - each character has reached a low point in their life. Aides loses his family. Ryan is at a crossroads in which she could end up having a harder life than anyone would want for her. Norma is having her marriage crumble because she's unable to see anything besides her want in the relationship. Through varying point of views we're able to get each character's perspective and really understand what each person has not only gone through, but eventually how love and caring for each other is power enough to heal.
This is an emotional book that is dramatic in the best way. If you enjoy books like that, definitely give this one a try!
