Good read - well-developed characters, great dialogue, moving story. Would have been 5-star review, except the book was poorly formatted and needed some proofreading and editing. Tried all combinations of margins and fonts to no avail - orphan letters and punctuation on nearly every page. Very distracting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As is true for most Americans, the events of September 11, 2001 are seared in my memory, every detail of that day as clear as if it was yesterday. Although a fan of Mr. Hime's other books, I was hesitant about reading this one because of the memories and emotions tied to that day. It was hard to believe anyone could tell a story about Sept. 11 and do it justice - not even if they were there - yet Hime has done just that. With painfully real characters and salty Texas prose, Hime takes you on a journey across Texas, across America...and across time...to a place where even the most damaged soul can find hope. It's been two days since I finished the book and I still feel caught up in the story, my only disappointment being that it is over. Profound. Moving. Inspiring. Read it!Was this review helpful?
