We have received many wonderful reviews for “Angel in the Rubble,” but this is one of my favorites because it really explains what we were trying to do with this book. It was posted on Amazon.com on Feb. 2, 2014 by J. Galla:
I read the reviews on here before buying the book and was concerned it would be too forceful in the religious convictions department. But I didn’t have that issue with this book.
To me the most riveting was the beginning of the book, where they did NOT leave right away but I know how this ends… so it was very suspenseful. I was able to put myself into her shoes the way this book was written, and understand WHY did so many stay in the buildings so long.
I could feel the regret and anguish when she realized the building was coming down and that she didn’t think she would survive. Then the most amazing part were the hours in the rubble. I still can’t imagine HOW she survived.
Now into the next section is how she survived and how this traumatic, long, torturous event changed her. This was a personal story, of HER personal journey. SO I didn’t take the revelations that she had of her religion in a negative way. This was HER story, and how she experienced events, and what HER perceptions were. I found it very inspirational and well written. It also wasn’t too long.
I recommend this book to anyone that is curious about how someone could have survived the collapse, why some people stayed in the buildings longer than they should have… and just how someone could cope with such trauma.
