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.

    " It was interesting to read a variety of fictional first-hand experiences from 9/11 and it was inspiring to read about how God can use the most tragic circumstances for His good. However, I found the characters to be somewhat predictible and the story very contrived. "
