"I found Jeffrey Gorney's book particularly moving. As a Romanian-American, I share the same sense of wonderment and fascination about our ancestral land. I envy Gorney the oral tradition passed on to him by his grandparents. While my grandparents were every bit as Romanian they, like many others today, were either ignorant of their lineage or perhaps even unwilling to share it. For those of us who hunger for that kind of connection this book is the perfect remedy. Enjoy!"
