Called tells the gripping account of 9/11 from her vantage point. She recalls the moment she when took the call from Todd Beamer on United Airlines Flight 93, and when she heard the immortal words, "Let's Roll." She remembers the way that her life was transformed vividly when she responded to the call.

I just felt the Lord was saying buy 10. Dispite the sad circumstances that brought about this book, I was overwhelmed by the good feeling I got from reading it. It touched me in a way not many books do. Everyone that I gave a copy to called to say how much the book touched them. It is especially good to see how the Lord can use us if we are willing to let him. If we are willing he will give us the ability!
Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5An inspiring storyApril 9, 2011Pam BurkePotosi, MOAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you have about an hour or so to spare, a good way to fill it would be to read Called by Lisa Jefferson and Felicia Middlebrooks. Lisa Jefferson was the Verizon AirFone supervisor who took the call from Todd Beamer from Flight 93 on September 11, 2001. Lisa's life was forever changed by a conversation that began with, "Hello, my name is Mrs. Jefferson. I understand your plane is being hijacked," and ended with those now-famous words from Todd Beamer, "Let's roll!"
Lisa is confident that God put her in just the right spot at just the right time to handle the difficult challenge. As she and Todd spent those fifteen minutes on the phone, their common faith provided a connection much deeper. Her ability and willingness to share the experience with Lisa Beamer (Todd's wife) and others in Todd's family provided for them a sense of comfort. This previously quiet and private woman has since had many opportunities to publicly share the lessons God has brought to her. Lisa Jefferson's story of faith is a blessing and an inspiration.
