Details

On September 10, 2001, Eddie torres started his dream job at Cantor Fitzgerald in the north Tower of the World Trade Center. The next morning, he said goodbye to his 7Ω-months-pregnant wife, Alissa, and headed out the door.

In an instant, Alissaís world was thrown into chaos. Forced to deal with unimaginable challenges, Alissa suddenly found herself cast into the role of ì9/11 widow,î tossed into a storm of bureaucracy, politics, patriotism, mourning, consolation, and, soon enough, motherhood.

Beautifully and thoughtfully illustrated, American Widow is the affecting account of one womanís journey through shock, pain, birth, and rebirth in the aftermath of a great tragedy. It is also the story of a young coupleís love affair: how a Colombian immigrant and a strong-minded New Yorker met, fell in love, and struggled to fulfill their dreams. Above all, American Widow is a tribute to the resilience of the human heart and the very personal story of how one woman endured a very public tragedy.
