Man Down

Jessie Goodson is on his way to becoming a paramedic, but the past he would like to leave behind, catches up to him in some ways one day.  Randal Connors is a paramedic and is going to be training a couple of the soon to be paramedics in Jessie's class, with a definite "hands off" policy towards the students.

Will the man who is broken and scarred be able to shine through and will the veteran paramedic hold fast to his own rule?

An interesting read and it seemed much longer than it actually was - in a very good way.  Not only does it show how the past can shape people, but how they are able to overcome the past.  I liked the characters both because they were vibrant and believable and because of the way they interacted with each other.  The book ended much too soon for my tastes and I wished it was a lot longer.
