‘Avoiding the Flame’ sets stage for romance between two characters reluctant to accept God’s plan

Wrought with themes of romance and tested faith, “Avoiding the Flame” gives readers a new perspective on dedication to God’s will and the love between man and woman.

God is the driving force behind the relationship unfolding between Elisabeth Wilson and David Reed in the new fiction by author Amy S. Wheat, “Avoiding the Flame” (published by WestBow Press).

Wheat’s new book is a wholesome love story written with Christian readers in mind. “Avoiding the Flame” follows Elisabeth, a single woman who is forced into motherhood by a family misfortune, and David, a man whose self-sacrifice and career has stopped all prospective romantic relationships.

Each woman David meets turns out not to be the one God has picked out for him; Elisabeth seems to be no exception. A firefighter by profession, David cannot resist the urge to rescue Elisabeth from her life struggles, and the two develop a budding romance.

Wrought with themes of romance and tested faith, “Avoiding the Flame” gives readers a new perspective on dedication to God’s will and the love between man and woman.

“Both main characters are striving to live righteously,” Wheat says. “Their misconceptions about each other block them from following the path that God designed for them. Like so many of us, our goals for our lives and God’s goals are two different things. It takes faith to trust God over logic, fear and doubt.”
