Independent Author Index (IAI): What is your book about?
Loree Lough (LL): On a steamy spring morning, Dusty Parker–part time pastor, part time search and rescue team leader, and full time administrator of a home for troubled boys–joins the search for a missing teenage girl. He partners with volunteer and inner city teacher Grace Sinclair, and what they find bonds them in ways neither could have expected.
As they begin to build a life together, a visitor from the past causes Dusty and Grace to open their hearts still further. But a threat looms over their seemingly perfect world and, in one terrifying night…
IAI: How did you pick the topic for A Man of Honor?
LL: The First Responders series (A Man of Honor is book #3) was written to honor the brave men and women who consciously walked into danger on 9/11 to find and rescue strangers, buried in the debris at Ground Zero, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania farm field.
IAI: How is A Man of Honor different from other books that cover the same or similar information?
LL: All three books feature characters deeply impacted by 9/11 in stories that pick up ten years after the tragic event, and focus on the lasting physical, emotional, and spiritual impacts their experiences caused.
IAI: What do you like most about writing this book?
LL: Every one of the 200+ first responders (and/or family members) interviewed for this series asked me NOT to tie up the endings “with a pretty red bow.” I managed to highlight the haunting after-effects of that history-changing day and keep my promise to them.
