A Fall Of Marigolds
by Susan Meissner

PBR Review With varying degrees, everyone was touched by the events of the 911 terror attack. I live miles away from ground zero but can still remember the burning sensation in my throat and the eerie silence that descended upon the city as the world waited and wondered. This may be part of the reason I was so touched by this story; I loved it. Susan Meissner parallels two NYC tragedies; the 911 terror attacks and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911, which at the time was considered the most deadly NYC disaster. Both stories are compelling; pulling you in, shaking up emotions, creating conflicts within and leaving you amazed with the similarities of theses two events, a hundred years apart.Back.
Talking Points: People handle loss differently, but at the same time there is a common thread. Lives can be changed in an instant and feeling normal again is a hard and difficult personal journey. This is a story of 2 fires, with 2 very different causes but the end result is the same on a lot of levels. There is also a thread on fate and the feelings associated with it.
PBR Reader Comments:
Very Compelling read which struck some strong emotional cords. Very hard to put down at times. Its two stories running parallel and both are good. Highly recommend.
