The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks

'From one of America's most beloved-and bestselling-storytellers, here is a novel about a man and a woman trying to find courage to make the biggest commitment of all...to love someone forever. Taylor McAden was a risk taker. A volunteer fireman in the small southern town where he had lived his entire life, he was the first to take the plunge into a burning house to rescue someone, the first to put his own safety on the line. However, there was one risk that Taylor seemed unable to take, and that was to let any woman into his heart. Then he met Denise Holden. The single mother of a little boy with severe disabilities, Denise had moved from Atlanta to the small town of Edenton, North Carolina where her grandparents had left her a house. She came to Edenton in an attempt to make ends meet while devoting herself to the care of her child. Falling in love was the last thing she intended. A near fatal car crash brings Denise and Taylor together, and awakens in them feelings long dormant. But before Taylor can fully welcome Denise and Kyle into his life, he must first take the ultimate risk-to look into his heart and his past, and see if it's not too late to take a chance on the future.'

Another absolutely fantastic story by the wonderful Mr Nicholas Sparks. I don't know how he does it but manages to tug at every heart string throughout the story and attempts to rip it out at the end.... As with most of the books written by him, this one made me cry at the end... Beautiful story and wonderful characters.....
