I shy away from some books that sound like real thrillers because I can be very sensitive to scary content. I am SO glad I didn't pass up the opportunity to read this book. The suspense, action and emotion made it a page-turner and the author's clear authenticity with her thoughts, doubts, and prayers, set this book apart from other action adventure novels.
This memoir is about Virginia Prodan's experiences growing up feeling out of place and underfoot in Communist Romania. While the government was less than welcoming of Christianity, Virginia had problems even closer to home, as her family was less than welcoming to her compared to her siblings. Much of her life, Virginia felt as though she were searching for the truth about different situations.
I would recommend this book to teenagers and adults who enjoy history, as well as to anyone who would like a spark to kindle their faith. Excellent reads such as this one are a great antidote to apathy.
