rabck from book_drunkard; Written as a series of letters to her infant daughter, the author focuses lightly on the events during and post 9/11, but more on her courtship and marriage to Jeremy. The pictures leading into each chapter were a nice touch. The difficulties in being a "hero family in the spotlight" were mentioned lightly, but it must have been so hard to grieve and be pushed into the spotlight by the media and well-meaning general public folks who were clamoring for more info about the tragedy. Interesting about the things that were recovered. This book will travel along in the "Y" bookring - a very worthwhile read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312319223, Paperback)

On September 11, 2001, Jeremy Glick boarded United Flight 93 only because a fire at Newark Airport had prevented him from flying out the day before. That morning, he called his wife, Lyz, to tell her the plane had been hijacked and that he and a group of others were going to storm the cockpit, an effort that doomed Glick and his fellow passengers, yet doubtless saved lives on the ground and instantly became known worldwide as a heroic moment of resistance. But Lyz wanted the couple’s daughter, Emmy, only three months old when the plane crashed, to learn much more of her father’s story than just the ending.
Your Father’s Voice narrates Lyz’s struggle to come to grips with her husband’s death in a series of letters from Lyz to Emmy that give a wrenching but clear-eyed account of Lyz’s first years without Jeremy.
Through it all, Lyz pragmatically details the challenges of a single parent raising a daughter in the aftermath of horrific tragedy, and urges Emmy to listen for what Lyz can still hear when the wind is right: her father’s voice.
