    What did you love best about Between Heaven and Ground Zero?

    Hearing the intensity, the emotion and the power of the author's voice as she read her own words conveyed the feeling and immenseness of this woman's struggle to survive and to come to terms with the tragedy and find meaning. Her spiritual growth was evident and it felt real and empowering to me to hear it as she healed and found her way out of the trauma of victimhood.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Between Heaven and Ground Zero?

    The poem she read 10-0 was poignant and powerful, conveying the anxiety, the fear, the intensity and the tragedy as I myself relived viewing this travesty on TV that fateful September 11th, 2001 morning.


    What about Leslie Haskin’s performance did you like?

    I loved her voice, her accent, both Eastern and African American. I loved the power of her words and the emotion filled punctuation of the book on tape--no one could have read it and brought it to life better than the author herself!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I love the title itself, which really says it all!


    Any additional comments?

    It was a bit distracting to have the scripture verses interrupting the story--spoken in an English accent, was a bit hard to take. perhaps it was the dialectic of the opposite between American and Foreign, between African/American and Caucasian English. It makes sense to read scripture, since it is a spiritual awakening, however, I didn't see the connection between some of the biblical quotes and the message she was telling. All in all, however, it was a powerful, pointed and extraordinarily courageous account of Leslies spiritual, emotional and mental journey from tragedy to triumph. I applaud her strength, courage and wisdom!
