|Plot Summary of The Smoke Jumper|
|""The Smoke Jumper" centers on two best friends, Ed and Connor. Ed falls in love with Julia, a woman who works as a rehab counselor for troubled youth. She takes kids out hiking and asks them questions like "How does that make you feel?" One of the kids, Skye, is killed during a forest fire and during the same fire, Ed is injured and becomes handicapped. Julia marries him, even though she is secretly in love with Ed's best friend, Connor.
We learn that Ed is sterile, so he and Julia ask Connor to be a sperm donor so that they can have a child. Julia eventually gives birth to a daughter, and heads off to war-torn Uganda so that she'll feel closer to the now-absent Connor since he once took a series of photographs there."
