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. 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.
Leslie Haskin has become the voice of hope for many since her miraculous escape from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, which she wrote about in Between Heaven and Ground Zero. Today Leslie is active in outreach ministry and is the founding director of Safe HUGS, an agency that helps victims of domestic abuse. She makes her home in Newburgh, New York.
