Editorial Reviews

Review

"I interviewed Genelle Guzman just after the world changed on September 11, 2001. I wondered how what she went through would affect her life in the years to come. In this eloquent and poignant book, I ended up reassured and inspired. And not just about Genelle. But about humanity. Even though we know Genelle was "the last survivor," the detail in this book is intricate and tense; as you read each word it makes you angry, sorrowful, and incredulous all over again. But the underlying story of Genelle's strength, fortitude, faith, and kindness is a vivid and important reminder that good is far more powerful than the evil we saw that day. This isn't just Genelle's incredible story. This is a story that does honor to the innocent victims of 9/11 whom we will never forget." (Gary Tuchman, CNN national correspondent)

Angel in the Rubble is a riveting, simply-told story of strength, hope, and miracles by a simple, yet extraordinary, woman. It strengthened my faith in God, humanity, and those American values that make the USA the remarkable country it is. It's a potent shot of hope, whether Jew or Gentile, Muslim or Atheist. (Wendy Fitzwilliam, Miss Trinidad & Tobago, author, and Miss Universe 1998)

“I simply devoured Angel in the Rubble; I read it from cover to cover and found it impossible to put down! Genelle’s life is undeniable proof that miracles still happen. Even when all hope seems lost, it is never out of reach. Hope was a choice that not only kept her alive for twenty-seven harrowing hours, but caused her to live her life in the aftermath of tragedy with deep conviction and passion. She shares that hope is available to all of us, regardless of whatever circumstance we may face. It is hard to read Angel in the Rubble without searching your own soul and asking yourself what truly matters. You will never look at your life, your family, or God the same again. This book is sure to impact the world, but more importantly it will touch your heart in a profound way.” (Crystal Woodman Miller, survivor of the 1999 Columbine High School shooting and author of Marked for Life)

Inspiring. Gripping. Riveting. Read this book. It will clasp you by the hand and compel you to get right with God and others—today. You’ll be challenged to believe in miracles . . . in angels . . . in redemption . . . and most of all—in God Almighty. (Robert Rogers, author of Into the Deep: one man’s story of how tragedy took his family but could not take his faith and founder of Mighty in the Land Ministry)

Format: Hardcover
All of us remember the events of 9/11. Most of us remember what we were doing and where we were when those terrible events occurred. Genelle Guzman-McMillan was literally right in the middle of things. She worked in the North Tower. She was officially the last survivor pulled from the rubble of the Towers. She was rescued 27 hours after it all began. During the time she was trapped she had time to look at her life and where she had been heading and what she hoped to do IF she was found. She was pinned in a small space only able to move one arm. It was during this time when she felt so alone that she reached out to the God she had pushed away so long ago. This is not only her story of survival against all the odds, but her story of spiritual renewal. She made promises to God that she is now working to fulfill on a daily basis. This is a must read for anyone who wants to read a 9/11 survival story. It is a definite read for anyone who feels all alone in this world and would like to find their way back to God. It is for anyone who just wants to be inspired. I definitely recommend this book.

Angel in the rubble is an absolute must read. From the moment I started reading this book it was very hard for me to put it down because I desperately wanted to know what happened next. I was inspired and captivated by Genelle's recount of the horrific ordeal that took the lives of many of her friends and co-workers on September 11th. Her narration gives you insight on the frightening thoughts and stress that went through all those innocent people minds. Whether you're a believer or non-believer this book is a true and faithful testament to me that there is a God, even though I can't see him, I know that he is real. A miracle like Genelle's just further proves to me that God is always with us and he will never forsake us.

If you can draw a breath, there is always hope. No matter how bad thinkgs look at the time. Sure we don't usually go through the things the Genelle went through but the references to hope still apply. Sometimes extra ordinary things have to happen to you so that God can capture your attention. Trapped underneath millions of pounds of rubble you'd think to yourself, "there's no way anyone will find me here. I'm doomed." I'm sure this woman was tempted to go there. But her story was just beginning, not ending. Give this book to the people in your life that need a lift or a boost to get going again. Life is a gift so get on with it!

"When the world says 'Give up', hope whispers 'Try it one more time.'"

I think this book is filled with great quotes! I've marked pgs so I can remember them & look back on. I can't imagine going through what Genelle and others went through first hand on 9/11. Hearing her story, the story of some of the rescuers, and some of those who lost their lives on 9/11 was very emotional! Their persevance and hope is inspiring! I'm so happy to have this book in my collection!

Once you start reading, you can't stop. You get drawn into the story being told, knowing the magnitude of what happened on 9/11.

It was a great book. Very inspiring. To think a person could survive under those circumstances is a miracle from God.
