    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..."

    Story

    "The Submission" is an excellent tale of what it means to be an American or Americans as the United States becomes more diverse. It is also an insight into the lives and backgrounds of people striving to create and keep a sense of community during tumultuous times. This is not a story that invites thinking through the issues of culture, religion, community, and nationalism from an academic perspective. It's about people who are contemplating, testing and redefining these ideas and assumptions in real time. From the offices of the mayor of New York City to the neighborhood pharmacy we see people tackling the most sensitive of issues. The story starts out a little slow but it gets better and better. I give this audiobook a 4.5- 5 star ranking.
