I absolutely love Karen Kingsbury's writing! Out of all of her books, though, this series is my absolute favorite. I could not put it down till I turned that last page. My heart ached for Jamie & Sierra, with what they were going through. It brought memories of 9/11 crashing back so fast that I found myself crying throughout the majority of the 1st book, "One Tuesday Morning", and, then again while reading "Beyond Tuesday Morning". Mrs. Kingsbury has a way of writing a story that makes you f ...more

The first of these books, One Tuesday Morning was a great way of learning to understand about 9/11 although perhaps not a book to read late at night in bed! However, the author writes with such faith, realism and understanding that you can feel the pain of those involved in the tragedy almost as strongly as if you had been there. She tells the story through the eyes of two families, one a fire fighter's and the other a business man's. Although totally unrelated the two families lives become enta ...more

I absolutely LOVED this book. I couldn't put it down. While my losses in life aren't the same as the main character, I felt as if some of the main points were aimed at me. I definately have had a breakthrough in my grief process. When the book states that a person should "choose life" instead of living for/in the past, I lost it. I couldn't stop crying. I probably cried through half of the book, but it was something I needed. The loss of my tiny son shook me to the core, and I didn't know how to ...more

This book was GREAT! It was confusing for the first couple of chapters....trying to follow all of the characters being introduced...but once I got past that and to the day of the NYC Twin Towers tragedy....I was HOOKED! I never wanted to put the book down....This was 2 books in one.....and I just read where there is a third one in this series coming out later this year and I can't wait to read it!

Predictable but a lovely full circle story

Of course this sequel was predictable...but I wouldn't have it any other way. I found it a little drawn out at times, over explanatory, but all in all a beautiful story that will stay in my heart and mind for a long time. When I chose this series, I did so only because I had read and enjoyed another book by Karen Kingsbury (Dandelion Dust). The topic of 9/11 being near to my heart as I am a NY City native. Curiously, when I moved to California I lived an

OMgosh... these books were so wonderful.. i love that Kingsbury is a Christian author. She writes so beautiful. I love that the story doesn't end with the 1st book... The story becomes full and love is all around in the second one!

What a well written book dealing with a painful subject to many of us. One more way to help me process 9-11.

Recommends it for: Karen Kingsbury fans, Christian fiction fans, 9/11 fiction fans
I believe I read the first book from this 2 book edition previously. I had not read the second book in this edition before though. The first book deals with several families and how their lives are impacted by the events of 9/11. A case of mistaken identity gives one man a chance to become the husband and father that his family needs. In the second book, we get to see that that has persisted. The plot of the second book was predictable in that I knew what would happen before it did. I like the m ...more

One Tuesday Morning:

This is the first book I ever read by, Karen Kingsbury. I saw it at the store not long after 911, and because of that, wasn't sure I was up to reading anything about 911. Only because of the fireman on the cover, I bought it. My husband's a fireman.

Well, I was quickly drawn into the story. It was well written and a great read, keeping you turning the pages, wanting to see what happens next.

I finished the book, and thought it was really good; I couldn't get the brother, Clay,

This was one of the best books I've ever read! I just couldn't put it down. It made my heart break for everyone who lost a loved one on that tragic day. I think most everyone was changed that Tuesday morning. This book brought back some of the emotions I had in the weeks after 9/11 & I couldn't get through it without crying. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

This book is about a guy named Jake Bryan waking up to the sound of the twin towers collapsing. Jake Bryan gets collapsed on my debris from the towers and fire fighters must battle to get him out. This book was a very hard book to understand in some parts but is a very good book. I suggest you read it.

Whewwwww, this is a long book. 600 pages! Man man man! What a beautiful written book. I laughed and cried. I wish I could meet a little girl like Sierra. Her heart is so pure and lovely.

This book opened my eyes to a lot of things and allowed me to see such a gentle side of those working at St.Paul & those who had been affected.

I don't like how wordy the author is, I had this issue with her other books. But other than that, such a beautiful story of life. Man, such a great book.

This book is beautiful. Such a compelling story and Karen truly understands the art of writing. Never in my life have I felt so involved into a character's life until I picked up a Karen Kingsbury book. Absolutely amazing. I'm dying to get my hands on the 3rd book.
Tammy
This was my first Karen Kingsbury read and I couldn't put them down. Two parts, the first part was the better of the two but you have to read them both.
Beverly Tanner
Both really good. I prefer the second but both are filled with sadness, love, tears, happiness and His presence. Good read! *Thumbs up*

I read this book once before and it was heart touching, I lost a cousin in the first tower, and it is hard not to have mixed feelings about it, while the story is fiction the plot that led up to Jamie believing Eric was Jake was not really plausible, even the most stubborn workaholic would not have stayed to crunch numbers for a business that may cease to exist, the towers were coming down and what deal can you make if you are dead, and despite the amnesia other signs were telling her Eric was n ...more

Loved the book and this story. I did think it was a bit drug out and very predictable . I had the end of the second book figured out before I finished the first one. Still a good read.

I considered reading these many times, but the subject matter (people affected by September 11) made me hesitate. I finally decided to listen to them and enjoyed it. I like the author's stories but struggle with how wordy she is. I am not a wordy person and don't understand some authors' need to cover every angle of a situation, then come back at it a few more times. So I enjoyed them. They are good.

If you read no other book by Karen Kingsbury, this is the must read one. Actually two books under one cover. You will not put it down, plus you will forever want more of Karen Kingsbury books in your own personal library. This was my first read by this wonderful author and I have given this book to everyone of my friends and more, I'm sharing Karen's gift of love.

Having only recently discovered my love of reading, this book has made my new found hobby even more enjoyable. I especially like the way she writes from different characters' perspectives, and the creative way she highlights the beauty of God's character in the midst of the most difficult of circumstances. I look forward to reading more of Karen Kingsbury's books.

This put a nice closure to the first book in the series. The end was predictable, but the lesson of "choosing life" after a tragedy was sincere. I probably would not have read these two books had not a friend loaned them to me. I'm glad I did though. I gained an even deeper insight into the lives of those who lost loved ones.

If you love Christian fiction these two books are worth the read. Karen Kingsbury has a wonderful way of taking the tragedy of 9/11 and creating a story when even the most faithful questioned God. I love reading her books! They leave me feeling renewed in my faith and inspire me to be a better person.
