When I read this book at my desk- I cried. Why? Because my son was one of those rescuing at the CTV site within minutes of the earthquake- he was so close to it all. Like so many New Zealanders we are connected to this story. The story of my city, my cathedral, my family, all my three children who study in Christchurch. Tomorrow is one year on- this book tells the stories of the survivors, those people my son helped that day, for them one year on is a year they thought they may never have.
