Book: Remembrance (Novelette)
Author: Suzzana C. Ryan
Publisher: Rebel Ink Press
Genre: Inspirational Romance
This story makes us once again remember the horror of September 11, 2001. It is a story about a family and a father who brought his children up with love and faith. Hope O'Keefe was the black sheep of the family, a photographer for the Museum of Natural History, twenty-eight and single. Her sisters and brothers are married, and her parents keep waiting for the day she will also.
When she meets thirty-five year old divorced father of two, Vincent Palmeri, a cop and friend of her father's, her views about being single change. She is in love; the feeling is mutual but tragedy strikes and the family is left reeling. Illness and 9/11 change the O'Keefe family.
This book brings tears to your eyes, but it does something even more than that, it makes you remember, and 9/11 is something we should never forget. The author did an incredible job of reaching into my heart and making me once again aware of how fragile life is. This is not about who marries who, who loves who. It is about remembering and honoring those that died on that fateful day.
