What Brothers Do pulls readers not just through the trenches and ashes of Ground Zero after the fall of the Twin Towers, it coaxes us through the tortured mind and heart of Michael Brown, a brother who feels the loss, dread, fear--and yet hope--of finding his brother alive. "Paddy" Brown would surely survive--he was a FDNY superman--not even the devastation of the 9/11 terrorist attack would stop him! Could his heroism rise above evil?
It took 10 years For Michael Everett Brown to publish the book that bared his soul and sorrow and now nearly 10 years later, we all still live with the losses and unfulfilled dreams of those 343 fire fighters who perished, trying to save the lives of fellow New Yorkers.
Keeping the memory of Captain Patrick Brown--a true American hero--alive as we approach two decades of recovery is Michael Brown's quest. Paddy Brown was loved, revered and respected by everyone who felt his strength, sincerity and send of purpose, and his story, as experiences by his brother, brings life not just to his memory, but also to his irrefutable spirit as a man who lived to serve and protect.
What Brothers Do invites us to follow the journey of the Brown brothers as one traces the life of a fallen icon and in the process, recreates his own. We stand in awe of the life of Paddy Brown and stand by his brother who knew only that he had to go find him--and in doing so, found pain--and love.
