What happens to the families, the photographer, and the newscaster after the camera stops rolling or the story is no longer news? Get inspired, be motivated, and hear the behind-the-scenes accounts as news reporter Jen Maxfield shares several stories that have personally touched her in More After the Break: A Reporter Returns to Ten Unforgettable News Stories. Within the stories that she's covered during her twenty-year career, despite the discomfort she felt in covering each story, a few left a mark on her heart and became a part of her life. Once Jen began to reflect on the various stories that she'd covered - from crimes, scandal, and natural disasters to humanitarian events - she had begun to realize that these are more than stories and are testimonies of faith, hope, and the will to continue to fight another day. These stories will pull at your heartstrings as you embrace, connect with the people, and feel the passion and emotions poured onto the pages.
I truly embraced and respected the fact that over the course of time, Jen Maxfield had come to realize that these accounts may not be her personal story but once she'd entered into their lives, her future and decisions would never be the same. Also, she'd been able to see others in a different light. More After the Break includes beautiful stories where, despite their trauma and tragedy, people were joined together in unusual circumstances, and lives were changed. Each story gives the reader the essence and oneness with the victims, families, and the outcome. As people give candid and transparent accounts of their stories, the reader can't help but allow these stories to impact their lives and may be able to see some glimpses of themselves. If you've ever wondered how it feels to be a newscaster and the process behind the scenes, the motivation behind the stories, and the aftermath of some, this is the book for you. Enjoy!
