When the unthinkable happens . . .

En route from New York's LaGuardia Airport to Tampa International, Flight 848 bursts into flames and crashes into Tampa Bay. All 261 passengers and crew are killed. For one week, newspaper columnist Peyton MacGruder and her fellow reporters cover one of the nation's worst air disasters in years with overwhelming and numbed emotions.

Then a woman Peyton's never met gives her a plastic bag that has washed up behind her house. The bag contains a note, almost certainly from the doomed flight, with a simple yet wrenching message: T- I love you. All is forgiven. -Dad

Combing through the passenger list to find the victims whose children's names begin with T, Peyton is determined to deliver the note to its proper owner. A quest which will prove as important to Peyton's own life as to the mysterious T.

A reporter is given a note from an airplane crash that inspires her to seek for the person for whom the note was written. Hunt weaves an interesting investigation in seeking out that person, while the reporter gives hints to the notes contents to her newspaper readers. She is also battling her own unhappiness from her past, plus tv news caster who picks up on her lead story and offers her support. I would have liked the ending better if they would have jumped 5 to 10 years later to conclude the entire story. Starts with a bang, then slows down to introduce the reporter, then goes at a steady pace to the ending.
