    Laurel Lockwood lost her son once through neglect. She's spent the rest of her life determined to make up for her mistakes, and she has succeeded in becoming a committed, protective parent-maybe even overprotective. Still, she loosens her grip just enough to let Andy attend a local church social-a decision that terrifies her when the church is consumed by fire. But Andy survives...and remarkably, saves other children from the flames.

    Emotional rollercoaster of a family story.

    No - I don't re-read or re-listen to books but I have been thinking about the issues the booked raised.

    Yes - deals with a range of emotions.
