his book was such a therapeutic read. I cried and then cried a little more as I read the details surrounding this fictional representation centered on the events of 9-11. My heart grieved intensely for the families that experienced the loss so vividly described in this book. Not only is it impossible not to love the characters in the book, you will find yourself rooting for them and eager to find out what happens to all involved. This is a story of love and hope in the face of immense tragedy. If you pick this book up, be prepared to be immersed in it... Be prepared to cry, because it will leave you emotionally raw. I would recommend this book to anyone as an amazing read.

ake Bryan is a New York City fireman and devoted family man. He has a storybook marriage to Jenny, his high school sweetheart. Taped to the inside of his helmet is the photograph and name of their four-year-old daughter, Sierra. Eric Michaels is a driven financial manager who has spent the past five years climbing the corporate ladder, often at the expense of his wife, Amber, and two young sons. On September 11, 2001, Eric is doing business on the 91st floor of the World Trade Center when the building is hit by a commercial airliner. In the race down the smoky stairwell, Eric falls. At the same moment, firefighter Jake Bryan is rushing up the stairs. He stops and helps Eric to his feet and as he does, his helmet falls. Eric hands the helmet back to the fireman and both men freeze momentarily, stunned by the uncanny resemblance between them. Minutes later the building begins to shake and crumble. When Eric Michaels awakens he is beneath a fire truck. He is burned and bloody, and most of his clothes have been blown off. A fire captain rushes to his side, thinking he recognizes his friend Jake, and leads him to a triage center, then contacts the woman he assumes is the man’s wife—Jenny Bryan. By the time she arrives at the hospital, Eric's face is bandaged from the burns and injuries. When the bandages come off, days later, Jenny assumes that the difference in his appearance is due to the effects of the burns. Eric remembers almost nothing from before the attack. In the months that follow, Eric struggles to fill the gaps in his memory and to relate to a wife and daughter he doesn't remember. On the opposite coast, Amber, grieving the loss of her husband, is helped by Eric's best friend--a single man who has always adored her. Then Eric begins having disturbing dreams and flashbacks--of a different family. And questions begin to grow in Jenny's mind.

Life is too short for half-hearted connections and meaningless run-throughs
