This is a true story of a young woman from Wisconsin who was killed on Sept. 11, making her first-ever business trip to the World Trade Center. It's a heartbreaking topic ... as a firefighters's wife, especially, I am drawn to this sad topic. The local connection made me even more intrigued, thus I really wanted to like this book more than I actually did. Andrea Haberman's story is tragic, as is everything connected to that horrible day -- and as a parent, I cannot imagine what her family went ...more

Finished reading Just A Few Sleeps Away ....I couldn't put it down. My heart aches for Andrea, Al, her parents, and family.... I still cannot fathom what Her loved ones went through - the story has helped me connect to the events of 9/11
on a deeper, more personal level. Thank you for sharing this story with me.

This was a book selected by my book club and not one I would have normally chosen. I am very glad that I read it and was moved greatly by it. I am looking forward to the author joing us next Thursday to discuss it.

The first half of this book was great, Heartbreaking and devastating. The second half seemed to drag - definitely a pacing issue. I'd have preferred a little more of the relationships and a little less of the hunt to understand the inexplicable.

Pretty funny -- the Mike Nichols who is described in Goodreads' author bio as the person who wrote this book is not the Mike Nichols who actually wrote it.
