9780764202865: Between Heaven and Ground Zero: One Woman?s Struggle for Survival and Faith in the Ashes of 9/11

A Second Chance at Life On the sunny morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, terrorists murdered more than twenty-seven hundred people in an attack on New York City. Thousands died when a hijacked Boeing 767 slammed into Tower One of the World Trade Center. It was first blood. For Leslie Haskin, it was a second chance at life. This is the riveting account of Leslie's harrowing escape--down 36 floors in a doomed and dying building and away from a life focused on perks, prestige, and power. The intervening months brought crippling mental and emotional distress, but from the rubble and ashes, the corporate climber rediscovered the faith of her childhood and now embraces a new life of serving others.

From the Back Cover:

"Hang onto your heart.... While this is not an emotionally easy read it is a redemptive one. We witness in Leslie the reverberation of the human spirit as she recovers her footing after September 11. How extraordinarily courageous of her to let us see how she found her way out of the unthinkable." --Patsy Clairmont, Speaker for Women of Faith and Author of All Cracked Up

"Between Heaven and Ground Zero hits the nail on the head of two very large nails. First, it reminds us of the capacity for evil from jihadists that our nation still faces, and second and most important, that a personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ, is the only source of personal and eternal peace." --Lt. Col. (Ret.) Brian Birdwell, Survivor of Pentagon attack and Founder of Face the Fire Ministry

"For those of us who want an inside peek at God’s compassionate presence in the midst of inscrutable tragedy, this book is as close an experience of 'being there' as we are likely to get. Leslie’s struggle for faith in the face of unanswered questions can inspire us all." --Paula Rinehart, Author of Strong Women, Soft Hearts and Sex and the Soul of a Woman
