I highly recommend reading this book for the romance, light suspense and insightfulness of the authors take on 9/11. The author takes a look a how a childhood friendship can shape into an adult romance and does an excellent job with it. Furthermore, she delves into a firefighters emotions and experiences during the 9/11 cleanup. After reading this book, I feel even more respect and admiration for those firefighters and volunteers who were part of the 9/11 aftermath.
One side note, I wrote the author to find out whether this book will be released again in the near future as it is not available new at this time. She wrote back that she has rewrote it adding steamer parts and its at the publishers for review. I so enjoyed this book, that I will immediately be going out to buy the new version. Regardless, if you are able to get a copy of this version, I definitely recommend it!
