Tell Me Exactly What Happened: Dispatches from 911 by Caroline Burau

I admit that I expected this to be a book of 911 stories, and there are 911 stories here, but it is so much more than that.  It is the story of a woman who has devoted years of her life to helping others often missing events with her family because of the stress and odd hours the job requires.  Over the years she has made and lost friends, saved lives and come back to do it again day after day.  It gave me a new perspective and a new respect for the people who put their lives on the line to help us when the world comes crashing down.
