Publisher's Summary

A devoted fireman and a driven businessman: strangers with the same face. Only one will leave the Twin Towers alive, but will he ever find his way home?On the morning of September 11, 2001, two men meet in a smoky stairwell of the World Trade Center. One is Eric Michaels, a driven financial manager from Los Angeles who has been busy climbing the corporate ladder, often at the expense of his wife and young son. The other is Jake Bryan, a New York City fireman devoted to his wife and daughter. In the midst of the crisis, Eric falls on the stairs and Jake stops to help him up. The two men freeze momentarily, stunned by the uncanny resemblance between them.Later, after the building has crumbled to the ground, Eric awakes beneath a fire truck. He is burned and bloody and most of his clothes have been blown off. A fire captain rushes to his side, thinking he recognizes his friend Jake. By the time Jake's wife arrives at the hospital, Eric's face is bandaged and his memory gone.In the months that follow, Eric struggles to relate to a wife and daughter he doesn't remember, while on the opposite coast Eric's real wife grieves and finds comfort from Eric's brother, a single man who has always adored her. The emotional suspense builds as Eric begins to have disturbing dreams and flashbacks, and questions grow in Jake's wife's mind.The only way for Eric to find his way is by following the love of a special woman, and the footsteps of a man who no longer exists.

Extremely disappointed

This book should have been identified as Christian literature with a pervasive religious theme. I would not have purchased this book had it been identified by Audible for what it really is. This is not the type of literature that I enjoy or would consider reading. I am feeling quite deceived by the description of this book.

Very disappointing!

I am so disappointed with this purchase. I am not even half way through it but I don't think I can take anymore. Overall the book has a great story but it is way to religious for the average reader. I am shocked that there is nothing in the description that describes how religious the book really is. I am not anti-reliigion, but I can't even get into the story because every other paragraph is about how great Jesus is. If you're not looking for a SUPER religious book, don't buy it! Also, someone else mentioned, one of the narrators swallows so loudly every few minutes that it really starts to get on your nerves...
