Description Other Fires: Novel by Lenore H. Gay

Joss and Phil’s already rocky marriage is fragmented when Phil is injured in a devastating fire and diagnosed with Capgras delusion―a misidentification syndrome in which a person becomes convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an identical imposter. Faced with a husband who no longer recognizes her, Joss struggles to find motivation to save their marriage, even as family secrets start to emerge that challenge everything she thought she knew. With two young daughters, a looming book deadline, and an attractive but complicated distraction named Adam complicating her situation even further, Joss has to decide what she wants for her family―and what family even means.

Advance Praise Other Fires: Novel by Lenore H. Gay

“Once again, Lenore Gay has woven a story that captivates the reader from page one. Other Fires is a brilliant study of tragedy on multiples levels. Beginning with a dysfunctional family struggling in the aftermath of a terrible fire, she expertly peels back the layers of human behavior and motivation that unravels the lives of the guilty and innocent. Peppered with surprising twists and turns, the story will stay with you long after you close the cover.”―PAM WEBBER, author of The Wiregrass and Moon Water “Heartwarming and dramatic, the two major intertwining stories in Other Fires reach across decades from troubled childhood to mid-life adults and reaffirm what remains human and vulnerable in all of us. The portraits of the main characters arc from hopelessness to vulnerability and a sense of recovery. Gay holds the reader’s attention from the first page.”―DIANA Y. PAUL, author of Things Unsaid “How do people figure out their minds? This novel explores what constitutes reality, and from whose perspective. Drawing on her varied experiences in life and background in rehabilitation and mental health counseling, Lenore Gay weaves together the perspectives of compelling characters who interact in ways that keep the pages of this novel turning.”―CHRIS REID, PhD, Rehabilitation Psychology

My Review

Other Fires: A Novel is my first introduction to the work by Lenore H. Gay. I thought it was a good read. It is one that toyed a lot with my emotions. It is not an easy or light read. I had to make sure I was able to sit for a bit alone to keep myself focused on the story. I was mostly engaged from start to finish. 

I am giving Other Fires: A Novel three and a half stars. I would be interested in reading more by Lenore H. Gay in the future. I recommend other readers to pick this one up and give it a try. 

I received Other Fires: A Novel from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.


  1. I am so glad you found ;Other Fires' engaging. Thanks for hosting.

  2. It sounds like an interesting book. Thank you for sharing.
