about this book: In 1932, former New York City Fire Captain Jake McCann is appointed fire chief in Woodhill, a small Ohio village. He and his two officers, also from New York City, are haunted by their memories of two tragic events. For Jake the appointment is a chance for him to rebuild his life in the town where his twin brother, a physician, already lives.

The first person Jake meets upon his arrival is Laura Darvey, a woman married to a local gangster. In addition to her profession as a nurse, Laura raises Appaloosa horses; inviting Jake to visit her farm sparks his interest in horses and provides an opportunity for Jake and Laura to become more than friends. When Laura's husband learns of the relationship, he unleashes the fury of Prohibition Era gangsters on both of them.

MEMORIES explores problems facing the fire service that haven't changed much over time. How Jake and his friends overcome their personal demons is much the same as firefighters and veterans of today must deal with their emotional scars.
