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.


- Publisher "A first-person account of a woman working in New York City's World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, and how God rescued her from resulting mental, emotional, and financial problems and gave her a new purpose in life"--Provided by publisher.

- Publisher Leslie Haskin achieved great success at Kemper Insurance Company in New York City. She became the Director of Operations and one of only two African Americans to hold executive title within the corporation's eastern region. But 9/11 changed her priorities. In addition to her career, Leslie is active in outreach ministry, serving with Goodwill Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Montgomery, New York. She spends her time in the inner city spreading the message of hope to the homeless and otherwise lost.
