A Ray of Hope by Jeanne McDonald

| July 29, 2013 | 0 Comments
Micah Cooper, an EMT in New York City, was no stranger to thinking fast and acting faster. His life was a continuous loop of spontaneous decisions. Everything was a matter of life or death in his line of work. He lived for the thrill, and loved the ability to help those in need.

Being the son of a well renowned surgeon, Micah was well educated in the life of a medical professional. He had seen everything, or at least he thought he had. But when the planes crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Micah realized he hadn’t seen it all. In a single moment, he lost his ability to think. Trapped inside the south tower was his wife, Hope.
Hope was Micah’s world, his sunshine, and when the towers collapsed, so did his heart. He watched, along with the world, as the heart of America went down in dust and flames. Through the chaos and devastation, Micah only had one mission, to find Hope.

By his side, through the madness, was his trusted partner and friend, Zachary Pearce. Together, they raced against time and destruction to save Hope. In the midst of tragedy, discouraged that all might be lost, Micah holds on to a ray of hope that his wife will be found.

Review by FS Meurinne

The events of 9/11 changed the world, no matter where you where, I’m sure everyone remembers what you did on that day. For me was a day I had a college exam, I’ve woken up at 3 am to study (my normal study time, in case you wondered, I wasn’t ever able to study during regular day time). After I was done I decided to turn on the tv and watch the morning news as I got ready. The exam wasn’t until 11 am (Central Time) so I watched everything as it happened. I still have my exam as I don’t live in the US. But we where all shocked about everything.
This story reminds us of some of the many stories of that day. One where hope was present and the only thing that kept most people from collapsing as well.
Even though it is a novella, it is enough for the reader to fall in love with the characters and their story. We all know there wasn’t a HEA for everyone in 9/11, but there where a few miracles that showed us that you should bever loose hope or take things for granted.
Give this story a chance to show you a story that could’ve been true for any hero of the NY-EMT brigade.
