In the Wake of the Storm

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In one of life's unfathomable twists, on the afternoon of October 31, 1994, a turboprop plane bound for Chicago crashed in a soybean field outside the small town of Roselawn, Indiana. All sixty-eight people aboard American Eagle Flight 4184 perished, including the author Terri Severin's sister, Patty, and her nephew, Patrick. This tragedy created a ripple effect that grew to have worldwide repercussions. National Geographic has stated it is one of the most significant plane crashes of modern aviation history.The behind the scenes story of the airline disaster of American Eagle 4184 and the added trauma which arises when airlines fail to treat the victims' families in a humane way unfolds as Severin tells of the plane crash investigation, and of healing and recovery. This story of resilience and hope is a universal story of how the best within us rises up when the worst befalls us. It's a spellbinding and inspiring account of how the surviving families, broken down by shock and grief, found the strength to take a stance against a flawed corporate system and effect change through advocacy and the passing of new legislation that continues to benefit all passengers today. Within Terri Severin's poignant account of living with loss, but not succumbing to it, is a universal message of hope.

Customer Reviews

Excellent, touching, honest

As someone who has lost a loved one to an aviation disaster, I can say that this book is very truthful and honest. Very difficult to read at times-- the experiences are similar if not identical to mine. Thankfully many of the reforms spurred by Flight 4184 were in place by the time my father passed away in the crash of Flight 5191 in 2006.

Terri does a fantastic job relating the details and feelings that surround an aviation disaster.
