BOOK REVIEW: LOVE YOU, MEAN IT:
There are many stories that have come from that very tragic day of September 11, 2001. This book is the shared stories of four women who lost their husbands on that day and how they have managed to deal with this tragedy.
All four women, Patricia Carrington, Julia Collins, Claudia Gerbasi and Ann Haynes, lost their husbands on September 11, 2001. The men worked in the World Trade Center. They first met in July of 2002 and from that day on they continued their friendship. They would often meet at bars and restaurants and exchange their stories with each other. They thought of their meetings as "The Widow's Club". The women also take trips together to the beach and places where there is an emotional memory for them. Together, they felt they could make it through all of these emotional memories. They also attend the yearly memorial at Ground Zero. The women also send constant emails back and forth and sign off with "Love you, Mean It".
The book details many of the stories about each couple such as their courtship and marriage.
This book is a wonderful tribute to their husbands, a story of an everlasting friendship and how these women managed to survive this horrific day. We all know how terrible we felt when we watched the news on September 11 and the days following the terrorist attack. However, unless we actually lost someone that day, we truly do not know the deep loss that each person felt. This book brings to light the emotions these women felt and how they had to deal with each day following this tragedy. The authors show us how precious life is and how fast it can disappear. You will find this book hard to put down. It's a great read even though it evolves around a tragic event. Be sure to add this one to your reading list.
