Overview

On September 11, 2001, Susan LaRosa finds herself stranded in San Diego 3,000 miles from her Brooklyn home. The last time she hears from her journalist husband, he tells her he is heading for the Twin Towers moments after they'd been hit by the second plane. The last time she heard from her children, aged 15 and 12, they were staying with friends. With no cell phone and without any way to fly home, Susan impulsively boards a Greyhound bus for a journey across America. For the next 78 hours, her existence would be a patched up vinyl bus seat, and a bus full of strangers all wondering what was happening to their great country.
This commemorative Kindle single is being released just in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11. A dramatic story of the fear and trepidation everyone was feeling that fateful day.
A true life story reminiscent of Paul Simon's famous song "America."
