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.

    " The story of a young girl who escapes Communist Romania and makes her way to italy, and eventually to Chicago. The main character is not very warm or likable, and some of the situations seem contrived, but the author describes well the hardships endured by Romanians under their oppressive and ever-watchful former government. "

    " I listened to this on audio, and the narator really added to the experience. It was quite interesting reading about the Romania during the communist time, and the experience of one who escaped. However, I found the ending quite unsatisfactory. "
