This is a book about the extraordinary heroism that people are capable of. It tells the true story of twenty-nine people caught up in one of the most feared of catastrophes - a passenger plane crash, and explores what it means to have your life turned upside down by the events of just nine minutes and twenty seconds.
Combining in-depth research with superbly evocative writing, Gary Pomerantz has written an exceptional and compelling book about the resilience of the human spirit.
