Be sure to have a box of hankies close by when you read this book- you're going to need them. This is the story of Todd Beamer, one of the passengers on the ill fated flight 93 on September 11, 2001. As is often the case, the story is in the telling and Lisa Beamer, Todd's devoted wife, weaves a compelling yarn about a young upwardly-mobile couple who were living there faith "below the radar," as Todd liked to say. As has been said, "Fate seldom calls on us at a time of our choosing" and such was the case for Flight 93 and the brave men and women who prevented that day from being much, much worse. I suspect that when many congressmen and women stood on the steps of congress to sing "God Bless America" more than a few were saying a silent prayer of thanks for the brave heroes who prevented flight 93 from reaching them. Lisa's courage matches that of her husband as she allows us into her life and heart as she bears the news and tells her children of the unthinkable. Among the best and most heart-rending books I have ever read.

This is a great account of Flight 93, which crashed in a Pennsylvania field on September 11, 2001. Lisa Beamer is very forthcoming about ever detail of her husband's last day on earth, their marriage, their family, etc. They were very faith oriented people, so there is a lot of religion mentioned through out the book. Sad, happy, eye opening.
