"The stories in this book of extraordinary kindness from perfect strangers are uplifting, reaffirming and healing. But I hope you’ll take them a step further: be inspired to be a perfect stranger in someone else’s life."
"In 'If Not for the Perfect Stranger,' more than 40 poignant narratives are shared beautifully by those who lived them. This anthology,
created and edited by Diane Montiel and
Steve Alexander, themselves witnesses to the explosions, is a powerful and moving tribute to
the victims and caregivers who found each
other on a day that now lives in infamy."
