In 1987, Miri Ammerman returns to her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, to attend a commemoration of the worst year of her life. Thirty-five years earlier, when Miri was fifteen and in love for the first time, three planes fell from the sky within three months, leaving a community reeling. Against this backdrop of actual events in the early 1950s, when airline travel was new and exciting and everyone dreamed of going somewhere, Judy Blume weaves a haunting story of three generations of families, friends, and strangers, whose lives are for ever changed in the aftermath. The plane crashes bring some people closer together and tear others apart; they create myths and unlock secrets. As Miri experiences the ordinary joys and pains of growing up in extraordinary circumstances, a young journalist makes his name reporting tragedy. And through it all, one generation reminds another that life goes on. Beautiful, gripping and deeply moving, In the Unlikely Event is an unforgettable novel from Judy Blume, one of America's most beloved authors.

When a young woman dies three years after a brutal assault, newly arrived pathologist Elliot Morgan reluctantly agrees to perform the autopsy. Though initially of uncertain significance, the discovery of an unexpected lesion ultimately ignites a quest with surprising twists and turns as an unusual virus is traced through the community. After a chance meeting, Rachel Anderson and Dr. Morgan find themselves drawn to one another. Together, as their lives become increasingly intertwined, they unknowingly threaten the perimeter of something bigger than an isolated crime of passion. Framed in the context of the day to day practice of pathology, side stories and vignettes swirl in the background. Consequences linger long after forgiveness. No one is beyond redemption.

A gifted novelist, Noėl writes his heart out in this book. Better than any book familiar to this reader, [this one] captures the tormented psychological circling, the ceremony of mourning and altar-buildingthat mark those left behind. That Noėl succeeds so wellis a tribute to his bristling intelligence, his talent for deft description, his willingness to openevery millimeter of his survival strategy since Brigids death.The Philadelphia Inquirer Noėl says the toughest, most poignant things there are to sayand with decided clarity, even humor, confirms the power of the human spirit to survive. His narrative of loss and the uncanny persistence of memory is beautiful and disturbing.Howard Norman, author of The Bird Artist Noėl writes very well indeed. His book is an honest one, and therefore painful.Peter Matthiessen, author of The Snow Leopard Noėl is absolutely unflinching. Idiosyncratic details like the tiny shard of windshield glass that he discovers in Brigids datebookbring her back to life, and small private moments flawlessly rendered make his grief real. The soul needs stories like this. It positively craves them.Chris Bohjalian, author of Before You Know Kindness and Midwives In the Unlikely Eventis a page-turnerpolished, skillful. Within a few pages or even paragraphs, Noėl often moves back and forth between decades. In one breath heschronicling his relationship with Brigid; in another, he reads from a journal kept by his mother during his childhood, weaving it all together to try to heal. Indeed, a perfect stranger could cry.The Los Angeles Times

The image on the book cover to the right is one of the top news images of our time. Immediately upon seeing it, we asked ourselves, "How could that happen? It would take a miracle!" In the providence of God, one of the passengers on board was a Christian fourth-year medical student who got on the flight home to Charlotte, SC, standby, because his residency interviews in New York City, January 15, 2009 were concluded sooner than expected. From the book: "As I took my seat, I pulled out two books I had been reading on the interview trail. One, The Sovereignty of God, by Arthur W. Pink, was a heavy theological book that had been convincing me of just how sovereign God is. The other was a little lighter read, Prince Caspian, by CS Lewis. This is a children's book with great biblical allegories.... "During this time on the taxiway, the flight attendants went through their typical speech of what to do if, "In the unlikely event of a water landing, your seat cushion may be used as a flotation device." I only half-way registered what she said, but I guarantee you, those words will never fly past my brain again, unattended." From the Foreword, by Dr. David Stevens, CEO of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations: "When you're hurtling toward death, the character already developed in you takes over like an auto-pilot, and finds expression in one way or another. In Andrew's case, while others might have screamed in terror, his response was to ask the nearby passengers if he could PRAY with them. Now that's the kind of doctor I want to attend me when things are taking a turn for the worse, or as the saying goes, when it seems like the wings are about to fall off."
