Description

Christina Shea follows up her compelling debut novel with an intimate look at the effects of history on an individual life. Smuggled out of Hungary to escape the Nazi menace, five-year-old Eva Farkas now lives with her aunt and uncle in Romania. Renamed Anca Balaj, she's told to forget her Hungarian past and language and accept a new identity. But when communism smothers her adopted homeland, Anca fights to survive. After the Iron Curtain lifts decades later, she returns to Hungary in 1990, hoping to reclaim her forgotten heritage.

Professional reviews

"Christina Shea's debut novel is the story of 5-year-old Eva Farkas, who escapes from Nazi Hungary in a flour sack and is renamed Anca Balaj by her aunt and uncle, who want to cleanse the girl's memory of everything Hungarian. But Anca is not so easily dissuaded, and she eventually returns to her homeland to embrace her past. The story is compelling, and Barbara Rosenblat's performance is masterful. Rosenblat depicts Anca's strengths and insecurities using a voice that is so natural that the listener is drawn to Anca, who remains optimistic and inspiring. In addition, Rosenblat transitions seamlessly from one character to another, allowing Shea's powerful narrative to shine. D.J.S.
