READ ¸ One September Morning Adison and his bitter younger brother Noah But amidst her loss is a growing conviction that the truth about John's death is far from overGripping thoughtful and emotionally powerful One September Morning is a story of loyalty and betrayal of a shattered family's journey toward healing and of the courage it takes to confront the truth not just about our enemies but about those we love best. I ve not read any books of any sort about 9 11 or anything to do with its aftermath since that cloudless sky blue September day in 2001 I never wanted to I never felt the need to So I m not sure why this particular book called to me when I found out about it But I m glad it did This is a moving touching emotional albeit terrifying story of what can happen on any given day to change our lives This story s backdrop just happens to be the military and our country s war in IraAt first I wasn t sure I was going to like each chapter shifting from character to character to advance the story but this method actually works in this instance You get the full effect of what that character is feeling and doing at that point in time Another issue I had to get used to was reading in present tense instead of past tense It didn t take long though and that actually worked for this story also bringing you into the moment with these characters and their lives as it s happeningAbby Stanton is suddenly living every military wife s nightmare Her husband John has been killed in action while stationed in Ira during the war She has to deal with an overbearing mother in law and career Army father in law who wants their son touted as a hero full military honors burial at Arlington the whole nine yards What they don t know is that John though he left a successful and lucrative professional football career to enlist had been doubting his country s duty in Ira American soldiers have done what they can now it s time for them to go home Abby tries to tend to John s wishes and also allow his mother some comfort in seeing her son honoredIt s when her college buddy Flint a reporter embedded with a unit during the war digs for information for Abby that she learns John was killed by friendly fire And it may have been deliberate She s determined to find out exactly what happened to her husband whether his death was an accident or murder Of course the Army isn t raising a hand to help her no matter which avenue she takes She meets the rest of John s unit when they come home months later to see what info she can get from them and she meets Charles Jump the psychologist assigned to help soldiers through bad times when engaged in battle He s a little too eager to become to her than she wants when still dealing with such tragedy but it is nice having a man around again if her guilt will let herThere s so much that goes on in this book of course John s brother Noah a nurse was in the same unit when John was killed he has his own issues with his brother s death and the war itself Their young teenage sister Madison is at the age that everything seems to be going wrong The soldier who was by John s side when he was hit has a hard time dealing with the fact he couldn t help the man their unit looked up to Even their superior officers thoughts and feelings are given fair opportunity with a couple of chapters The author gives us a look at practically every feeling and emotion that could be associated with such loss The only thing I wanted but didn t get was of an ending of what happens to the sociopathic bastard who caused such heartacheEven though our hero is killed early on in the book we still get the love story woven throughout the heartache and it s a lovely story There are those little funny moments we all have in life even in the midst of such suffering The evil encompassed on these pages is something you hope you ll never see There have been of course uestions about the coincidence I guess you could say between this story and Pat Tillman s who also left a successful football career to enlist and was killed in Ira Ms Noonan s book however had been started well before that young man s death And obviously Tillman s story doesn t have the deliberate act of murder by a fellow soldierIf you ve been thinking about reading this book and even if you haven t please do It s well worth the timeSee my complete review at

SUMMARY One September MorningOne September Morning

READ ¸ One September Morning L Cemetery in spite of Abby's misgivings John had grown to hate the war even though he loved his country and Abby can't reconcile the complex man she knew with the version being portrayed by self serving politicians military and the mediaShell shocked Abby strives to cope with her own heartache while comforting John's loved ones including his mother Sharice his staunchly anti war sister M. The prologue took my breath away It set up the rest of the story but took some of the mystery out of it for me I guessed and was correct where it was going Rosalind Noonan is one of my all time favorite authors and though I enjoyed this book it was not my favorite of hersAll the viewpoints made the story come alive but it also confused me at times I had to make sure I knew who was talking at the beginning of each chapter so I understood the perspective I was readingThe ending was a little too unbelievable I like happy endings and things wrapped up at the end of a book a nice feel good ending but this was a little too sugary sweet
