Description
The lyrical story of a young woman's journey from the totalitarianism of Eastern Europe to the freedom of America, told by an author who knows first-hand about living in a cruel and absurd dictatorship. It's the summer of 1977, and seventeen-year-old Mona is madly in love. Visiting her aunt's village at the foot of the misty Carpathian mountains, all she can think about is the mysterious, handsome Mihai, the woods where they linger, his deep green eyes, and his cool, starched sheets. Romania is in the early years of the repressive Ceausescu regime. One day Mona sees Mihai wearing the black leather jacket favored by the secret police. Could he be one of them? As food shortages worsen, paranoia grows, and more of her loved ones disappear in "accidents," Mona realizes she must leave her country. She makes a daring escape to America without saying goodbye to Mihai. In Chicago, she becomes a doctoral student, marries, has children, and tries to bury her longing for the past-until she feels compelled to return home and learn the truth about her one great love.

From page one of this lyrical, clear-eyed, and moving novel, Mona Maria Manoliu draws us into her world: a lush universe of sensuality, hunger, and passion. Her story begins in 1977, in a village at the foot of the Carpathian mountains in Ceausescu's Romania. She is seventeen and madly in love with a mysterious, handsome boy called Mihai.

When Mona's friends and family begin to disappear, Mona begins to wonder about this man she has fallen for. One night, narrowly escaping the police, she flees to Chicago, where she struggles to move forward and not to look back, to bury the longing for the country and the man she left without a goodbye. But when her dying father urges her to return to Romania, she realizes that she must journey back to find out the truth about her one great love.
