“RESCUE is about a Vermont EMT named Webster who has been raising his daughter alone since she was a toddler–the age at which the mother, Sheila, left them. The girl, Rowan, now 17, is beginning to break away from her father in ways Webster finds hard to understand. As he tries to keep his daughter on an even keel, he wonders if he did the right thing when his marriage began to unravel. The EMT scenes are authentic and sometimes rough. I did a lot of research to get them right, and I now think all parents should take some kind of modified EMT course for first-aid emergencies. I hope you enjoy the book.”
A rookie paramedic pulls a young woman alive from her totaled car, a first rescue that begins a lifelong tangle of love and wreckage. Sheila Arsenault is a gorgeous enigma–streetwise and tough-talking, with haunted eyes, fierce desires, and a never-look-back determination. Peter Webster, as straight an arrow as they come, falls for her instantly and entirely. Soon Sheila and Peter are embroiled in an intense love affair, married, and parents to a baby daughter. Like the crash that brought them together, it all happened so fast.
