Description

Fiction. Literature. Suspense. Christian Fiction. HTML: Based on the tragedy of the Twin Towers ... two powerful novels of heroism, loss, and redemption by New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury ONE TUESDAY MORNING The last thing Jake Bryan knew was the sound of the World Trade Center collapsing on top of him and his fellow firefighters. The man in the hospital bed remembers nothing. Not rushing with his teammates up the stairway of the south tower to help trapped victims. Not being blasted from the building. And not the woman sitting by his bedside who says she is his wife. Jamie Bryan will do anything to help her beloved husband regain his memory. But that means helping Jake rediscover the one thing Jamie has never shared with him: his deep faith in God. BEYOND TUESDAY MORNING Determined to find meaning in her grief three years after the terrorist attacks on New York City, FDNY widow Jamie Bryan pours her life into volunteer work at a small memorial chapel across from where the Twin Towers once stood. There, unsure and feeling somehow guilty, Jamie opens herself to the possibility of love again. But, in the face of a staggering revelation, only the persistence of a tenacious man, questions from Jamie's curious daughter, and words from her dead husband's journal can move Jamie beyond one Tuesday morning ... toward life..… (more)

I thought this bood was amazing. I knew 9/11 was terrible, by I didn't really understand the full affect until I read this book. The book was about these two families and how they were affected. One guy was very religous and completely believed and trusted in God and the other guy worked all the

time and didn't spend much time with his family. After 9/11 they find a body and they think it is one of the guys, who was a firefighter and send him home to who they think is his wife. He had lost his memory so they had no reason to believe it wasn't him. what they didn't know is that the guys look exactly alike and once his memory started coming back he had visions of his real family and they found out it was really the business guy. They end up finding his family and send him home. Having the experience with the religous family made him realize that he needed to spend more time with his family and so he turned his life around. The good thing about the book is that it really explained how serious 9/11 was and proved that you need to live your life to the fullest. I honestly don't think there was really anything bad about the book. I think the kinds of people that would enjoy reading this book are people who want to learn more about what happened on 9/11 and people who are religous.

I believe I read the first book in this series previously, though I'd never read the second one in the series. (This book contains both books in one edition.) Even now, more than 10 years past 9/11, it is still hard for me to read about it. The plot of the second book was pretty predictable. I

liked the theme that Kingsbury wove through the second book (that God can use even evil events to create some good). I liked that we got to see how the time spent with Jamie and Sierra and Jake's journal changed Eric Michaels and how he related to his family. I found all the "coincidences" in the second book a bit hard to reconcile with non-fictional life.

After 9/11, Jamie Bryan realized the man who returned home was not her husband, but a California businessman who looked like him with amnesia. This is Jamie's story on how she coped and the 2nd story BEYOND TUESDAY MORNING continues her next 3 years of struggles and successes.
