A Journey from Loss to Life and Finding a Way Out of Grief 

On September 11th 2001, 33-year-old Elizabeth Turner was working at Channel 4 when news broke of the attacks on the World Trade Centre. Surrounded by TV screens, like her colleagues, she watched as the horror unfolded. But for Elizabeth, the atrocities were even more painful - her husband Simon was at a meeting at the top of one of the towers as the planes crashed into them.

Elizabeth was seven months pregnant with their first child. As the destruction unfolded, and Simon did not call, Elizabeth's world crumbled, and she spiralled into an unimaginable abyss of grief. This courageous and moving memoir packs a powerful emotional punch, and hooks the reader from the first page.
