Determined to find meaning in her grief, Jamie pours her life into volunteer work at St. Paul's, the small memorial chapel across from where the Twin Towers once stood. In the stream of broken, grieving people who make their way through the church doors, Jamie connects with two men, a firefighter forever changed by the attacks, and a Los Angeles police officer.
Unsure and feeling somehow guilty, Jamie opens herself to the possibility of loving again. But a shocking revelation sends her reeling. How can this be the plan for her life?
Now only the persistence of a tenacious caring man, questions from Jamie's curious daughter, and words from Jake's treasured journal can move Jamie Byran beyond one Tuesday morning toward life.

A must-listen sequel to "One Tuesday Morning". The trials and tribulations of a woman trying live a Christian life who found her faith in God after her husband's death in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Many lessons can be learned from listening to this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to more Christian fiction.
An excellent sequel to "One Tuesday Morning", Karen Kingsbury shows how one's personal faith in Christ can overcome even the most dire events that life can throw your way. I wouldn't have expected anything less from the author. Rather than living in the past and constantly dwelling on the personal loss from the fall of the Twin Towers, Jamie relies on her faith to go forward with her life. While her personal loss will always be a part of her, her faith carries her into the future. A truly inspiring novel about how faith and love can overcome tragedy and loss.
It's obvious from the other reviews that people are disappointed with Karen's books because of the "religious" tone so as long as you understand that's what you are getting, this book is EXCELLENT. I don't usually read fiction but couldn't put this one (and One Tuesday Morning) down until I was finshed. I am a Christian woman and love that there is a fiction book out there with so much Christian emphasis. This book actually helped me with my faith issues and helped me with my view of God. Actually changed it a little. So I highly recommend this book as long as you understand exactly what you are getting.
I own a small shop selling custom/costume Jewelry. I love to listen to audio books while I create jewelry. I love all animals and get very upset when they aren't treated well, even in fiction.
Yes I would listen to this book again because I enjoyed it so much it was a really very special love story
I didn't want it to end ! I kept rewinding it listening to bits over and over again so that it would last longer. I was really sad to see it end.
I've listened to other titles by Karen Kingsbury this is by so far my favorite I actually didn't like some of the others so this one was something special
I found the story to be good, however, I almost didn't want to continue listening to it because the narration was so annoying. Some of the narrators had weird mouth noises and it sounded like you could hear their stomachs growling or something. I found that to be extremely distracting. But again, it was a good story.
The writing in this book, or maybe the editing, was poor. The trip to New York changed dates and lengths of time more than once. (At first it would go into December, but later ended up being early November, and switched several times from 3 to 6 weeks and back.) Then the writing-- a couple times she said things like, "She did a quiet laugh," instead of "She laughed quietly." I could almost forgive it when she was writing the scenes with the little girl, but then she continued in some of the adult scenes, like she forgot where she was.
The story itself was predictable and not too believable.
As for the narrator, she was ok, but at times she seemed to get her voices mixed up.
The redeeming quality was the MESSAGE of the book, which I found to be quite inspiring. I just wish that message could have been presented with better writing.
This is definately a "God has a plan for your life so choose life" message story. If you don't catch that message the first 40 or 50 times they say it, don't worry, they say it a few hundred times more before the end of the book. I guess they figured the listener couldn't remember it for more than a few sentences so they just kept beating the listener over the head with the same message over, and over, and over etc.
There are also lots of Bible referances and lots of messages to not think for yourself but instead, ask God to give you the answer to every little thing and to pray for an answer from God if you get close to making a decision on your own without asking God to give you the answer.
The preview write up for this book should make it clear that this is a religious book and not just a novel. It seems that the write up deliberately leaves that part out.
Too bad this book was not identified as an evangelizing tract. I could have skipped it. The story (which could have been quite good) is entirely masked by the clear agenda of pushing Christianity. The language used by the author is simplistic and the Bible quotes are jarring and inappropriate. Christy, by Catherine Marshall gives a beautiful example of how true Christian faith can be illustrated in a literate and elegant way. Perhaps if you need something to prop up your faith, this book may speak to you. For those of us who prefer literature, this book misses the mark by a mile.
