We, the public, knew only half the story.
A very different perspective of a devastating event from the 20th century. Our author gives us a very personal perspective of how this disaster affective her life and that of her son.
I really enjoyed this book in so much that I listened to it in one session however there were a few things that I scratched my head at. I never could understand why her son kept referring to his Father by his first name seeing that he was his birth Father. Perhaps I missed that explanation.
I really felt that having the phone ringing and hearing so many other voices added so much but I really must admit that I got very bored listening to the long memorial service and the absolutely 'nightmarish' singing! However as for the remaining 90% of the book is was a winner for me and I would highly recommend it.

While I feel for their loss, I got the feeling that Helen was very emotionally detached. She treats her son more like a friend than a child. I also was uneasy with the son using his father's first name all the time.
The book told me more about how the passengers and crew died. I knew the father of one of the flight attendants. I know there were many questions.
