    Loved this book

    It hooked me right from the first chapter I loved all of the characters really felt their pain. It took me a long while to figure out who the bad guy was. I really did not want it to end I felt like I was saying goodbye to my friends

    An Edge of Your Seat, Scare a Minute, Romance

    I loved the characters and the plot. It reminded me of "law and order" with a plot right from recent events. I really identified with many of the characters, and grew to care about the family.

    An insightful look at some modern military dependents struggling between support to their loved ones and their opposition to the Iraq War

    Following 9/11 NFL running back John Stanton informs his wife Abby and his parents that he is giving up his football career and his multimillion dollar contract to enlist in the army. After training, he and his unit deploy in Iraq where he is killed in a friendly fire incident. The officers who inform Abby of her husband¿s death insist he was a hero killed by insurgents.<BR/><BR/>The Wives¿ Club provides a grieving Abby with support while her in-laws demand Arlington National Cemetery, which the military is elated to provide. However, Abby begins to find discrepancies in the official report especially since her spouse was disenchanted with a war that made no sense. As she begins to demand the truth, the Wives¿ Club and her in-laws demand she shut up before she taints the image of a hero while John¿s two siblings encourage her to keep probing. Meanwhile, the maniac who deliberately murdered John has come to town to live the life of the late football star.<BR/><BR/>The obvious Pat Tillman connection aside, ONE SEPTEMBER MORNING is an insightful look at some modern military dependents struggling between support to their loved ones and their opposition to the Iraq War. The characters are fully developed and clearly divided. Most of Stanton¿s unit and their families want Abby to go away while his parents want nothing to taint their son the hero. Abby needs the truth and her anti war sister-in-law pushes her to keep asking. Although the psychopath provides added tension that takes a way from an otherwise deep look at the family member on the home front while a loved one is in a combat zone.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
