From Publishers' Weekly:

Breitweiser delivers her personal account as a 9/11 victim's widow-turned-activist in overdramatic prose blended with touching musical segues that invoke the ambience of Oprah. She recounts the first time she met her husband, Ron, and continues through until the last of his known remains had been at ground zero. Paralleling her private life, Breitweiser explains how she and three other widows fought to establish the 9/11 Commission and how they continued to pursue our country's leaders to determine and fix what went wrong. Five years later, she still has more questions than answers. Her narration is endearing, particularly the slight chuckles as she relates a particularly fond memory of her husband or daughter. She occasionally rushes her words ("more Ron" becomes "moron"), but her accent adds a personal touch. The bonus interview brings listeners up to date about her most recent events and adds to the overall production value of the audiobook. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
