One Tuesday Morning | [Karen Kingsbury]

One Tuesday Morning

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.

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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Wow!"

    I am now a regular book listner and reader, and this is one book you don't want to miss. I laughed so hard and cried so often I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster. It was a ride I will never forget. I have read other Karen Kingsbury books but this is one I couldn't put down, or turn off. I would even recommend this book to Christians that don't typically read Christian novels. It has universal appeal.
