Feeding the Fire
A broken family. A deadly hobby. Can a firestarter and firefighter rise from the cinders of a painful past?
Thirteen-year-old Jessie hopes a stepfather will fix her fractured home. But with her older brother missing and her mother riddled with guilt, Jessie feels more helpless with each passing day. Desperate to control something in her life, she sets her first fire and ignites a dangerous obsession.
Firefighter and medic Zach would do anything for the young girl who idolizes him. But with Jessie’s mother so distant and depressed, he fears his love won’t be enough to give her the help she needs. Focusing on a rash of local arson cases instead, Zach notices a pattern that’s eerily similar to the brother he couldn’t save…
When Jessie’s pain causes her to strike match after match, she captures the attention of a firesetter willing to teach the girl his secrets. And unless Zach can put two and two together, his best intentions could go up in flames.
As the blazes spread, will a young girl’s cry for help raze her family to the ground?
Feeding the Fireis a richly woven work of women’s fiction. If you like heartrending drama, stories of families fighting their past, and complex relationships, then you’ll love Amy Waeschle’s brilliant novel.
