"We assume we know what happened at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001; the towers' fall, office workers leaping from high windows. The aftershocks would emanate as far as Baghdad and Kabul. Much has been written about these world-shaking events, but Susan Fox focuses her compassionate pen on an overlooked part of the story: the lives of the people in the affected downtown New York neighborhood. As the Dust Settles well fulfills the promise of its subtitle: Finding Life At Ground Zero. From horror to recovery, Susan allows us to know her community-office workers, bartenders, shopkeepers, priests, residents and more-who come together to heal a scar. You will be inspired by this story of hope and resilience."
-James Bradley, author of Flags of our Fathers, Flyboys and The Imperial Cruise
