September 11, 2001, is starting off like any other day. By 5:15 a.m., Cameron Burke, a Vietnam vet and member of the military intelligence special operations unit, is running along the Potomac. As he completes his run and mentally plans his day, Cameron has no idea that in mere hours, everything will change—not only for him, but for everyone in the world.
After realizing he has already cheated death by not arriving at the Pentagon early that morning, Cameron receives orders from the President to find who committed the catastrophic terrorist acts against the United States. Meanwhile, as New York Times reporter Josselyn Jeffrey slowly makes her way through the horror as the South Tower falls, she only has one regret in life—losing Cameron, the love of her life. As Cameron and Josselyn muddle their way through the aftermath, they each recall their moments shared together and the years they lived apart. Now only time will tell if destiny and a life-changing tragedy have the power to bring the two lovers together once again.
Arise, O Phoenix is a story of love’s indomitable power and the triumph of the human spirit that both rise from the ashes of 9/11 to remind us all of the only things that truly matter in life.
