On September 11th, 658 men and women at Cantor Fitzgerald found themselves trapped together in One World Trade Center and none would make it out alive. Among them was Edie Lutnick's brother Gary, whom she had raised when their parents died at an early age. This is the story of the victims, the families and how they came together bonded by a tragic fate. But the story doesn't end there. In the aftermath of the attacks, Edie answered the call from her other brother Cantor Fitzgerald CEO Howard Lutnick, to create a fund for the firm's families who had lost loved ones. Over the past decade Edie and Howard have found themselves in a fight not to just give aid and comfort to the larger Cantor family, but also to honor the memory of countless victims. What they weren't expecting was to find a barrage of issues in their way from political jockeying to class biases. This is the powerful, sometimes infuriating and ultimately heartrending story of the mission to fulfill an important legacy, and give meaning to the lives of the victims of 9/11.

Edie Lutnick


If you read nothing else about 9/11, you must read Edie Lutnick's "An Unbroken Bond." Poignantly and painstakingly she lets the reader sit like a 24/7 video camera on her shoulder as she narrateswhat really happened to the families, the uplifting stories of theheroes of 9/11 who were there to help, and the stories of the politicians and officials who failed these families. Speaking of the Cantor Fitzgerald families she says, "We are broken. We will never be the same. But we have persevered through the unfathomable obstacles, and we are still here with our shared humanity intact." —Clarence B Jones
