This is a really good book. It is a true story of people in Middletown NJ who were affected by 9/11 and how they survived. It shows their struggles to go on and how some even went on to fight to get answers on what happened. Great read.

Great capsualization of post 911. Easy to read. Easy to fall into the lives and their hard fought victories.

I LOVED this book! I was totally hooked and involved with all of the families. I can't even imagine what all of them went through and then to share their stories with the world; they must have amazing strength!

Well-told story of the people left behind after the World Trade Center attack. Focused on one town, it follows widows, survivors, parents, and the community as it traces the changes in lives, and attitudes. I thought this would be difficult to listen to and at times that was the case, but in all it was uplifting and worth the time.

This is an excellent book about many of the lives affected by September 11, 2001. The author does a wonderful job of intertwining the before, during, and after effects of that dreadful day. The book takes you through high-highs and low-lows of people who's lives were forever altered by the falling of the twin towers. We forget about the fatherless babies born just days after 9/11, or the mothers and fathers who lost grown firefighter sons. In this book, you'll hear about last phone calls to spouses and loved ones, just to say "I love you". And sadly, the stark contrast of that sweet sentiment to the Bush Administration's unwillingness to open an independent research study into the numerous failures of government agencies that led to the attacks. Not being from the East coast and not really knowing anyone personally who witnessed 9/11 attacks, this book brought all of it home for me in a very real way. I highly recommend this book.
