Publisher's Summary

A devoted fireman and a driven businessman: strangers with the same face. Only one will leave the Twin Towers alive, but will he ever find his way home?

On the morning of September 11, 2001, two men meet in a smoky stairwell of the World Trade Center. One is Eric Michaels, a driven financial manager from Los Angeles who has been busy climbing the corporate ladder, often at the expense of his wife and young son. The other is Jake Bryan, a New York City fireman devoted to his wife and daughter. In the midst of the crisis, Eric falls on the stairs and Jake stops to help him up. The two men freeze momentarily, stunned by the uncanny resemblance between them.

Later, after the building has crumbled to the ground, Eric awakes beneath a fire truck. He is burned and bloody and most of his clothes have been blown off. A fire captain rushes to his side, thinking he recognizes his friend Jake. By the time Jake's wife arrives at the hospital, Eric's face is bandaged and his memory gone.

In the months that follow, Eric struggles to relate to a wife and daughter he doesn't remember, while on the opposite coast Eric's real wife grieves and finds comfort from Eric's brother, a single man who has always adored her. The emotional suspense builds as Eric begins to have disturbing dreams and flashbacks, and questions grow in Jake's wife's mind.

The only way for Eric to find his way is by following the love of a special woman, and the footsteps of a man who no longer exists.

One Tuesday Morning

The blurb about the book should mention its overt preachy tone or at least indicate that the publisher is Zondervan so that a person who just wants a good story doesn't have to endure so many hours of "church." I won't choose this author again.

What a concept!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well-developed, and the research was excellent. It kept you wondering until the very end. It made me see much more clearly the agony and heartache the victims of 9/11 went through. Living in the Midwest, I sympathized, but never really felt their pain. This book took me there. We need more Christian fiction of this caliber.

Over the top "preachy"

I gave this book four stars because I enjoyed the story and finished it in a very short time. That said, there was entirely too much religion and preaching for my taste. The first two hours, where the characters were being formed, was very difficult to get through because of the heavy religious content. From there, the story took hold and the preachy aspect was spread out a bit. I have not read this author before and even though I basically enjoyed this book I will probably not read her again because "Christian literature" is not my favorite genre.

Very Moving I just loved listening to this book on my long drive home, for my camping trip last year. VERY Good audio and enjoyed the full case narration.

What a sweet story!

The "coincidences" told in this book could only be the work of God, and thankfully the credit is given to no one else! A very lovely telling of the very dramatic grief experienced by fire-fighters' wives who lost their husbands in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Wonderful narrator - would listen to her books anytime. Please, Audible, bring us more of this quality book & narrator. Thank you!

Very disappointing!

I am so disappointed with this purchase. I am not even half way through it but I don't think I can take anymore. Overall the book has a great story but it is way to religious for the average reader. I am shocked that there is nothing in the description that describes how religious the book really is. I am not anti-reliigion, but I can't even get into the story because every other paragraph is about how great Jesus is. If you're not looking for a SUPER religious book, don't buy it! Also, someone else mentioned, one of the narrators swallows so loudly every few minutes that it really starts to get on your nerves...

Extremely disappointed

This book should have been identified as Christian literature with a pervasive religious theme. I would not have purchased this book had it been identified by Audible for what it really is. This is not the type of literature that I enjoy or would consider reading. I am feeling quite deceived by the description of this book.

Awesome Story, Very Healing

What did you like best about this story?

The story told in this book is riveting and the setting unforgettable. While listening to this book, I discovered that I had some latent anger towards those who caused the event and the reality of the event. Now I have some praying to do and more forgiving. The characters were were well developed and the continuity of the story smooth.

What does Full Cast bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really liked the use of the different narrators. The book was not full dramatized; however, having both male and female narrators makes a difference in the ambiance and gives even more credibility to the story.

not what I was expecting

I had not read any reviews before buying this and found it after looking for something inspirational . It started off ok and I liked the idea of looking at the events of 9/11 from a personal and family perspective. Then we got to the God part of the book and I realised this was Christian literature. I have my own beliefs about faith, God and life and although I do believe in a higher power, I couldn't relate to the Christian beliefs of the characters in the book. I also struggled with the plot, what are the chances of that happening! It took me a while to resume listening again but decided to suspend my disbelief and listen to it all the way through. I started to get a little more empathy for the characters as the book developed and did eventually feel the book was ok but wouldn't buy the sequel.

Religious craptrap

I was really eager to listen to this because of the significance and impact of 9/11. Instead, I had so much religion shoved down my throat that I wanted to throw up. Cannot even finish this. Its condescending towards those of us who are not religious, the usual rubbish about how we're lost etc.

Very Religious Overtones.

As decent as the base line story is, there are almost as many recitals of scripture as a Sunday mass. Definitely written with the intention to influence readers towards Christianity. Narration is shared by a female and a male. The female narrator was great but the 50 -60 year old male would try to imitate the voice of a young girls character....it was creepy.

Good story. Not a fan of narration

I've read the paper copy of this before and its a great book so i wanted to give it a go through audio book. I'm just not a fan of the narration. There's a few different voice actors reading different sections. Just wasn't a fan of the voices they gave the characters, especially the voice of the male narrator trying to do a voice of a small girl. it's just irritating. I really struggled to get through it with this narration. Much prefer paper copy of this book.
