9780751539387: The Smoke Jumper

His first novel, the international phenomenon The Horse Whisperer, became a publishing legend, setting a benchmark for contemporary bestsellers when it hit #1 on the New York Times list faster than any first novel in history.

He returned to enthrall his fans all across the world with his second triumph, The Loop, proving that here was a master storyteller of enduring power and appeal.

Now the acclaimed author delivers a searing new novel of love and loyalty, of guilt and of honor. In a story set against the epic backdrop of wilderness firefighting and frontline photojournalism, he gives his millions of readers another hero...The Smoke Jumper.

In The Smoke Jumper, Nicholas Evans delivers his most powerful novel to date, a story of two best friends and the woman they both love. When a terrible mountain fire forces her to choose between them, all three lives are changed forever. Here, Evans explores the territory her has carved out as his own: raw but complex emotion set against a vast landscape. Writing unflinchingly about the yearnings of the human heart and the painful quest for self-discovery, he gives us here a story of three fine people forced to walk the flames of passion and guilt and to make the devastating choice between love and honor.

The Smoke Jumper combines pulse-pounding suspense with an unforgettable love story that his readers all over the world will avidly embrace.

Review:

New York born and bred, Julia Bishop has no warning that spending the summer counseling troubled teens in Montana will change her life forever. Happily in love with smoke jumper and musician Ed Tully, she looks forward to spending the summer weekends with him in Missoula and is stunned and disturbed by the instant connection she feels to his best friend, Connor Ford. Connor, a Montana rancher and smoke jumper, loves fighting fires almost as much as he loves photography, and before the summer is barely started, he loves Julia Bishop just as deeply. The bond between the three is strong but the work of a smoke jumper is fraught with danger and the trio soon face death by fire. Survival changes their lives forever and places them on paths that divide Julia, Ed, and Connor just as surely as their individual journeys bind them irrevocably together. The Smoke Jumper is a tale of loyalty and guilt, honor and selfless love, and the human cost of choices made. --Lois Faye Dyer

From the Back Cover:

The elk emerged from the burning trees and stopped on the ridge above him. Its coat was scorched black and its antlers flamed like a torch. It stood there staring down at him and he felt like a pagan summoned before some ancient deity or devil from a world beyond. He slowly raised his camera and took its picture. Then, suddenly, it was gone, as if it never had been. But Connor knew it was an omen, though of what, as yet he had no idea.
