Captain Patrick Brown had an uncanny ability to be exactly where he was needed at exactly the right time. He died on 9/11, surrounded by scores of burn victims he was trying to evacuate from the WTC’s North Tower. Outside the FDNY, the many people whose lives he touched insist that he was inspired when it came to knowing their hurt, and how to heal it. To deal with her loss, his close friend and former fiancée began collecting stories about Pat, carefully stitching them together with her own narrative. The result is an intimate and moving literary experience, as well as a riveting introduction to a highly complex man whose legacy--encapsulated here --is destined to live on.
