The Fire Inside by Michelle Bellon

The Fire InsideBook Description:
Aiden, a doting husband and father, had the perfect life - a job he loved, a beautiful son, and a loving wife. In an instant, everything is taken from him and Aiden believes his life is over. Falling into a deep depression Aiden all but gives up on his job, his friends and himself. But when a mysterious force grants him the power to heal those around him, Aiden is forced to pull himself out of his misery in favor of the greater good. When he meets Ryan, a hardened, pessimistic teenager living on the streets, and Norma, a woman whose marriage is crumbling around her, Aiden acknowledges that maybe life still has a purpose and this ability to heal may be more powerful than he ever imagined.

My Thoughts:
This was a intriguing read.  Aiden's life is over in his mind.  He lost his wife and son so he has given up.  Ryan has to hide that her mother left.  Norma is a lady who wants children desperately and is fixated on that.  Three strangers who all need healing.
I like that the book is unique.  I felt so terrible about Aiden's family and how life spiraled from there.  I was drawn to Norma wanting children so bad.  Ryan's story was heartbreaking as well.  All three of these people so hurt and broken with there different problems was so sad.  Then it turned into a heartwarming story and I really enjoyed the characters and how the story went.
It was a 3/5 for me.  It was a good, quick read but completely predictable.
