Book Review: The Fire Inside By Michelle Bellon (#giveaway)

The Fire Inside
By Michelle Bellon
Genre: Literary Fiction

Book description:

Aiden had the perfect life. A job he loved, a beautiful son and loving wife. In an instant everything is taken from him and Aiden assumes his life is over. Falling into a deep depression Aiden has all but given up on his job, his friends and himself. But when a mysterious force gives him the power to heal those around him, Aiden is forced to pull himself out of his depression in favor of the greater good. When he meets Ryan, a young woman living on the streets, and Norma, a woman whose marriage is crumbling around her, Aiden acknowledges that maybe his life still has a purpose and his ability to heal maybe more powerful then he may ever imagined.

My Review

Author Michelle Bellon has taken three completely different characters and interwoven them together in a moving plot. This book starts off fierce with the death of Aiden's wife and son in a car accident. We watch his character experience a downward spiral and pretty much give up on life. In the meantime, readers meet abandoned teen girl, Ryan, and frazzled Norma who is desperate to get pregnant.

I absolutely love how Aiden's trauma and depression led him to tap into healing energies which allowed him to transform the lives of sick and dying people. This is where the story brings the characters together. It's a story about forgiveness, rebuilding, and trusting even when your past experiences say otherwise.
