Fireproof

On the surface you would think that Caleb and Catherine have the perfect marriage. He's a handsome firefighter who saved her father when he was stuck inside a building. She's a PR specialist for a prominent hospital. But their marriage is not working for either of them, and both are frustrated by the attitude of the other. It's hard for them to remember the good times, like when they were newlyweds or when Caleb saw Catherine for the first time without the bitterness of the way their life is now. Catherine has met someone else at work and she's not having an affair...yet, but it seems to be headed that direction. Caleb knows that Catherine is done and wants to just let their marriage die, but then he talks to his father and his father convinces him that he needs to give their marriage just 40 more days and that will make all the difference. Soon Caleb gets a package in the mail from his dad, it's a book called The Love Dare. Every day there is a new thing that Caleb is supposed to do for Catherine, but he's doubtful it will work. Their marriage is too far gone for anything to work, or is it?


I really enjoyed the storyline of this book. I enjoyed the firefighting aspect, but I also enjoyed the Christian aspect too. And who doesn't like a little bit of a love story thrown into the mix! I haven't seen the movie, so I don't really know how it compares, but this was written after the movie, so I would guess that it's pretty close.
