A survivor's awe-inspiring story of how she overcame tragedy
and re-created herself as a wife, mother, and woman
She had a big job on Wall Street, a loving husband and an
infant son, and a confidence born of intelligence and
beauty. But on 9/11, good fortune was no match for
catastrophe. When a wall of flame at the World Trade Center
burned more than 80 percent of her body, Lauren Manning
began a ten-year journey of survival and rebirth that tested
her almost beyond human endurance.
Long before that infamous September day, Manning learned the
importance of perseverance, relentless hard work, and a deep
faith in oneself. So when the horrific moment of her
near-death arrived, she possessed the strength and
resilience to insist that she would not yieldâ€”not to the
terrorists, not to the long odds, not to the bottomless pain
and exhaustion. But as the difficult months and years went
by, she came to understand that she had to do more than
survive. She needed to undergo a complete transformation,
one that would allow her to embrace her life and her loved
ones in an entirely new way.
Fleeing the burning tower, Manning promised herself that she
would see her son's face again. Courageous and inspiring,
Unmeasured Strength tells the riveting story of her heroic
effort to make that miracleâ€”and so many othersâ€”possible.
