The last thing Jake Bryan knew was the roar of the World Trade Center collapsing on top of him and his fellow firefighters. The man in the hospital remembers nothing, especially the woman sitting next to him. Jamie Bryan will do anything to help her beloved husband regain his memory-even if it means helping Jake rediscover the one thing Jamie has never shared with him: his deep faith in God.
Laura struggles to reconcile her faith and the loss of her distant husband in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Did he really stay in the building to finish a business merger as the rest of the company fled?
Quick pace with lots of initial action that is sometimes difficult to read. Even the inner dialogue moves quickly. The backdrop of a nation in mourning sets the somber tone of the book. Jake & Jamie are well developed, their counterparts are less so. You get a feel for their lives but not their heartache. Simplified feelings. Spiritual growth and healing are integral to the story. 2003, 333 pages
