Description

ISBN: 553802976

A husband's day-by-day account of his wife, Lauren's, remarkable recovery after sustaining 82% burns in the lobby of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Manning, a journalist, began writing a daily journal as he watched his wife lie in the ICU of the Burn Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. In the form of emails to family, friends and colleagues, he recorded Lauren's harrowing struggle and near-miraculous recovery -- and his own tormented efforts to make sense of an act that defies all understanding. This book is that email diary: detailed, intimate, inspiring messages that end, always, as if a prayer for a happy outcome: "Love, Greg & Lauren." If you know anyone who's been burned, the chronicle of this journey will be familiar, and this incredible soul-baring book should be an inspiration.
