Rescue by Anita Shreve

An EMT falls in love with a reckless patient, who then abandons him and their daughter, and he struggles with whether he should let her back in.

I blazed through Rescue, which doesn’t have the strongest of plots but offers an emotionally compelling story nonetheless. Though it takes a turn for the melodramatic near the end, I stayed with the characters because I found them to be so real. It didn’t offer any grand revelations, nor did it make my toes tingle, but it was a pleasant enough read.
