No Paved Road To Freedom by Sharon Rushton
About The Book:
No Paved Road to Freedom is a gripping and emotional story that humanizes the impact of communist occupation in Romania after World War II. It is relevant, it inspires, and it reminds us that freedom is precious. Based on a true story, it documents the extraordinary courage of Cornel Dolana and his family as they pay an incredible price for resisting communism. Cornel makes up his mind to escape the oppression and uses his ingenuity to put his plan in place. His fortitude keeps him moving toward his goal, despite enduring enormous setbacks, brutality, and extreme outdoor elements that few humans could survive. For several decades stories like Cornel’s could not be told for fear of persecution. From hundreds of hours of interviews over several years, author Sharon Rushton incorporated the highlights as well as the many details of Cornel’s experiences. She uses dialogue to bring the story to life. Rushton said, “His story is so incredible, it had to be told.”
Call me stupid, but I would have never known about communist Romania until I read about it in this book. I am sure it is public knowledge, and I may have even learned something about it in school, but I just don't recall. This book is very intriguing, and once you start reading, you can not put it down. The story is told so well, and you will become awe inspired by the journey of this one man. The courage one human being can have is truly amazing. This book is a story, a reality, a truth! A must read!
