“He could not remember exactly when he had decided to defect from his homeland and travel to America. He knew in America the people were free. He was aware of the freedom of speech there! He was aware of the freedom of religion! He was aware of the freedom of political belief! His entire life had been spent living in a Communist country with none of those freedoms.”

Live through Peter’s words the suffocating choke-hold of an oppressive government, the terror of fleeing horrific oppression, and the struggles of beginning a new life in America without speaking English.

Couldn’t put it down

I felt compelled to email you as I very much enjoyed your book. I actually couldn’t put it down and it was one of those kind of books where you want to keep reading but have to go to sleep because of work the next day. The story of what you and your family went through was scary! I also lent the book to a colleague at work. She said the same thing. Very suspenseful!
