Description - The Meaning of Waiting by Victoria Brittain

Eight women tell their stories-using their own words-stories of the unseen fallout of the war on terror in Britain. These are stories of real women, from cultures as varied as Palestine, Senegal , Jordan, Libya, St John's Wood, and the English Midlands. They all came to the UK as refugees, or married refugees there. After 9/11 the world they loved vanished almost overnight. One after another they were engulfed by isolation and private terror.
