The book is dedicated to Constantin, his son, to whom he passes on the wisdom gathered during his years in Romania. His story is not a story in Romania, but a Romanian story, as the title announces.
“I saw the danger, yet I walked along the enchanted way,
And I said, let grief be a fallen leaf at the dawning of the day.” is Patrick Kavanah’s starting quote and a real summary to the whole book.
