Publisher's Summary

Jake is a New York City fireman and devoted family man. Eric is climbing the corporate ladder at the expense of his wife and children. On a fateful Tuesday in September, two strangers meet for a startling moment in a smoke-filled stairway. Only one will leave the Twin Towers alive. Will he find his way home?

The last thing Jake Bryan knew was the roar of the World Trade Center collapsing on top of him and his fellow firefighters. The man in the hospital bed remembers nothing. Not rushing with his teammates up the stairway of the south tower to help trapped victims. Not being blasted from the building. And not the woman sitting by his bedside who says she is his wife. 

Jamie Bryan will do anything to help her beloved husband regain his memory, and with it their storybook family life with their small daughter, Sierra. But that means helping Jake rediscover the one thing Jamie has never shared with him: his deep faith in God. Jake’s fondest prayer for his wife is about to have an impact beyond anything he could possibly have conceived.

One Tuesday Morning is a love story like none you have ever heard: tender, moving, commemorating the tragedy and heroism of September 11 and portraying the far-reaching power of God’s faithfulness and a good man’s love.

One Tuesday Morning

The blurb about the book should mention its overt preachy tone or at least indicate that the publisher is Zondervan so that a person who just wants a good story doesn't have to endure so many hours of "church." I won't choose this author again.

Extremely disappointed

This book should have been identified as Christian literature with a pervasive religious theme. I would not have purchased this book had it been identified by Audible for what it really is. This is not the type of literature that I enjoy or would consider reading. I am feeling quite deceived by the description of this book.

Very disappointing!

I am so disappointed with this purchase. I am not even half way through it but I don't think I can take anymore. Overall the book has a great story but it is way to religious for the average reader. I am shocked that there is nothing in the description that describes how religious the book really is. I am not anti-reliigion, but I can't even get into the story because every other paragraph is about how great Jesus is. If you're not looking for a SUPER religious book, don't buy it! Also, someone else mentioned, one of the narrators swallows so loudly every few minutes that it really starts to get on your nerves...

What a concept!

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well-developed, and the research was excellent. It kept you wondering until the very end. It made me see much more clearly the agony and heartache the victims of 9/11 went through. Living in the Midwest, I sympathized, but never really felt their pain. This book took me there. We need more Christian fiction of this caliber.

Over the top "preachy"

I gave this book four stars because I enjoyed the story and finished it in a very short time. That said, there was entirely too much religion and preaching for my taste. The first two hours, where the characters were being formed, was very difficult to get through because of the heavy religious content. From there, the story took hold and the preachy aspect was spread out a bit. I have not read this author before and even though I basically enjoyed this book I will probably not read her again because "Christian literature" is not my favorite genre.

Not a thriller

Nowhere in the description of this book does it mention the particularly strong Christian content. Those readers who prefer a strongly religous book would probably like to know this about it, and those who thought it was more of an action book might be disappointed at the slow development and sometimes repetitive writing.

Suspend Critical Thinking!

Oh, why didn't I read the customer reviews of this book before purchasing it? I normally do, but the description of this book by Audible was so enticing, I opted to just buy it without further research. What a mistake!

As other readers have written, there is no warning in the book's description that this is wholly a Christian book, that Jesus permeates every paragraph.

Obviously this is not a problem for those who desire to read Christian slanted books. But I felt broadsided.
If you enjoy reading that the main characters discussed the (and I quote) lack of evidence supporting the theory of evolution, and feel that creationism tells the whole story, then by all means, you'll likely enjoy this book.

The premise of the story is quite good; the writing is not bad. But the constant preaching is truly annoying to those who did not expect--from the Audible description of this book--that this was a heavily weighted pro-Christian tome.

Liked concept, not "God" stuff

Interesting idea. Didn't realize when I purchased it that it was a "god' book. Same hollow stuff I've heard for years. Didn't finish. Would not have purchased had I read more reviews. My error on that. Amazes me that people are still so naive. And they may vote.

Yawn

Let me start by saying that I am a born-again Christian & have nothing against literature that features believers and the supernatural work of God. But this book just isn't very good writing. I have listened to about half, and I think I'm going to give up. The characters lack depth and the story line is not believable at all. On top of that, it drags way too slowly. How many hours does it take to make the (not believable, almost laughable) case of mistaken identity and amnesia? I have a friend who loves Karen Kingsbury's books, so I thought I would try one of her books. I wish I had saved my money.

not what I was expecting

I had not read any reviews before buying this and found it after looking for something inspirational . It started off ok and I liked the idea of looking at the events of 9/11 from a personal and family perspective. Then we got to the God part of the book and I realised this was Christian literature. I have my own beliefs about faith, God and life and although I do believe in a higher power, I couldn't relate to the Christian beliefs of the characters in the book. I also struggled with the plot, what are the chances of that happening! It took me a while to resume listening again but decided to suspend my disbelief and listen to it all the way through. I started to get a little more empathy for the characters as the book developed and did eventually feel the book was ok but wouldn't buy the sequel.

Religious craptrap

I was really eager to listen to this because of the significance and impact of 9/11. Instead, I had so much religion shoved down my throat that I wanted to throw up. Cannot even finish this. Its condescending towards those of us who are not religious, the usual rubbish about how we're lost etc.

Very Religious Overtones.

As decent as the base line story is, there are almost as many recitals of scripture as a Sunday mass. Definitely written with the intention to influence readers towards Christianity. Narration is shared by a female and a male. The female narrator was great but the 50 -60 year old male would try to imitate the voice of a young girls character....it was creepy.

Good story. Not a fan of narration

I've read the paper copy of this before and its a great book so i wanted to give it a go through audio book. I'm just not a fan of the narration. There's a few different voice actors reading different sections. Just wasn't a fan of the voices they gave the characters, especially the voice of the male narrator trying to do a voice of a small girl. it's just irritating. I really struggled to get through it with this narration. Much prefer paper copy of this book.
