Remarkable stories of the people of Gander, Newfoundland who cared for the thousands of stranded passengers from grounded 9/11 planes. Book was plagued by rudimentary, repetitive and uninspired writing.

A heartwarming read about how Newfoundlanders opened their homes and hearts to the thousands of air passengers stranded in Gander when US airspace closed, September 11, 2001. Darkness makes light more obvious and the narrative makes me proud of my Canadian compatriots who stepped up to the plate on that terrible day.

The safe haven created by the townspeople of Gander and surrounding towns for the stranded travellers on 9-11 was amazing. Reliving the horror of that day is balanced by the celebration of human kindness. Nice.
