About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The author brilliantly brings into focus the realities of everyday people faced by all the dimensions of tragedy and heroism as they go about their chosen duties for family, friends and strangers. Be prepared to chuckle at her capturing the language of firefighter's lives as they accept and judge one another so rawly from (+) "buff" to (-)"peacock".
This young author has touched my soul and deepened my appreciation for all those heroically enmeshed in such a nerve shattering event followed by a year of tragedy,fear,jealousy, incredible stamina, energy and heroism. Reading his book enables us to grasp realities of the complexities of heroism and tragedy of personal loss. Recommend this book thoroughly - you'll not soon forget the emotions that reading it will touch in you.
This book WILL take you on an amazing emotional journey.
While she gets a few details of uniform (shawls for piper's plaids) and piping (puffing on their pipes) wrong, she's really captured the feelings of these men who face danger and death on a daily basis.
