Mariana: A World Torn Asunder: The Life and Triumph of Constantin C. Giurescu tells an elegant story about an enlightened society that was dismantled with the 1946 Communist takeover of Romania and the time when Dr Giurescu’s grandfather, Constantin is confined to the notorious Sighet penitentiary. Drawing on her grandfather’s prison diary (which was put in a glass jar, buried in a yard, then smuggled out of the country by Dr. Paul E. Michelson who does the FOREWORD for this book), private letters and her own research, Dr. Giurescu writes of the Romanian legacy from the turn of the century to the fall of Communism. In Dr. Giurescu sweeping account of her family’s history, we see not only its effects socially and culturally, but the triumph in its wake: a man and his family who reclaim better lives for themselves and in the process teach us all a lesson in endurance, patience and will not only to survive, but to thrive.
