About the Book

Based on a local crime and set against the lull before everything changed for America in the summer of 2001, this novel looks at people battered by the happenstance of their own lives and by the defining event of the turn of the century, the attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11. The novel is concerned with how people survive and how some even manage to reach a state of grace.
