After reading How. To Walk Away I needed to re-read the firefighter’s story who showed up in the first chapter. Cassie’s who life changed on her 16th birthday. The beginning of her finding peace with herself is when her mother calls and says she needs help “for a year”
Out of duty or loyalty or just because Cassie’s devoted her life to being “one of the good guys,” she says yes. Her life in Austin has been falling apart anyway. She gets everything back in Lillian, at her moms. Everything she was missing that she didn’t even know she was missing.
It’s a story about heroes and love and forgiveness. And it’s delightful!
“It’s a strange thing to know about yourself, but there it is: I’m at my very best when things are at their very worst.”
