Fully Involved

A novel by Lindy Bell

            Plano author Lindy Bell, Abilene Christian University grad and sister of retired Abilene Fire Chief Larry Bell, has penned a powerful debut novel about the dedication and dangers of fire service.

Fully Involved features a young couple very much in love with each other and with what they do for a living – firefighter Andy Garrett and second grade teacher Katie Garrett.

Theirs is a love they pledge will last forever. But when Andy finally goes to the doctor after hiding his excruciating pain from Katie as long as he can, they have to confront the question of what “forever” means.

This is one of the most poignant and moving novels I’ve read. I became “fully involved” as I devoured the 460-page story in just two evenings.

The author, who went through the Plano Citizens Fire Academy in addition to being the sister of a fire chief, writes knowledgeably about how firefighters face increased risks of cancer as one of the lesser-known hazards of their profession.

Paperback, 466 pages. $18.95
