Jamie Bryan, widow of a firefighter who lost his life on that terrible
day, has found meaning in her season of loss by volunteering at St.
Paul’s, the memorial chapel across the street from where the Twin Towers
once stood. Here she meets a daily stream of people touched by the
tragedy, including two men with whom she feels a connection. One is a
firefighter also changed by the attacks, the other a police officer from
But as Jamie gets to know the police officer, she’s
stunned to find out that he’s the brother of Eric Michaels, the man
with the uncanny resemblance to Jamie’s husband, the man who lived with
her for three months after September 11. Eric is the man she has vowed
never to see again. Certain she could not share even a friendship with him, Jamie shuts out the police officer and delves deeper into
her work at St. Paul’s.
Now it will take the persistence of a tenacious
man, questions from her curious young daughter, and the words from
her dead husband’s journal to move Jamie beyond one Tuesday morning.
