    Claire Harwell hasn't settled into grief; events haven't let her. Cool, eloquent, raising two fatherless children, Claire has emerged as the most visible of the 9/11 widows who became a potent political force in the aftermath of the catastrophe. She longs for her husband, but she has found her mission: she sits on a jury charged with selecting a fitting memorial for the victims of the attack.

    Barbara says: "Some books were meant to be read..."

    Would you listen to The Submission again? Why?

    I would listen to the audio version for additional character nuance while reading a hard copy.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Listening to the "illegal" widow Asma grow into a virbrant lioness voice against intolerance and bigotry is one of more interesting aspects of The Submission; while the less than honorable reporter Spier is one of the least interesting aspects.


    What does Bernadette Dunne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Dunne's delivery added a deeper personalization of the characters; which in turn enhanced this readers' visualization.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The Submission is an all too uncomfortable; yet, accurate depiction of the people we live among......
