Item description for Hidden Destination: A True Romanian Adventure by Ross Brennan...
Overview Mark Olari knew he could be shot! As he swam the Danube in the moonlight, he prayed he would not be spotted. This was his fifth attempt to flee Romania's despotic rule. All he wanted was freedom to worship God. This is Mike's story, how he grew up in a land that voided itself of human rights. Under a godless government he learned the lessons that made him depend on his Creator. This is also the story of the Romanian people, their thirst for freedom, and their revolution. A detailed account of how brazen courage gripped an unarmed people, and their military dictatorship was toppled. This is a call for healing. The tragic aftermath of the Cold War, and the subsequent neglect by the West are examined. For the most part Hidden Destination reads like a novel. Included is a heavily documented account of the fall of the communist Romanian government.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hidden Destination: A True Romanian Adventure?
This is a BAD novel, not a travel book. Aug 16, 2006
This is a novel about a group of fundamentalist Christians trying to escape Romania through the forests and across rivers to Yugoslavia during the 1980s. I thought it was a travel book that would be useful in planning my trip to Romania and Bulgaria. I was very wrong. If you like novels from the Jerry Falwell press, you might enjoy this book. Otherwise, save your money. I must admit that I read only about 50 pages before I tossed it.
Hidden Destination Aug 23, 2002
Excellent book! I have been to Timisoara, Romania and the surrounding area twice on mission trips, and worked with pastors and others who experienced the hardships described in this book. I have recommended it to everyone else who is planning on visiting Romania, especially on a mission trip. The description of life in Romania both before and after the revolution is dead-on based on my experience and discussions with Romanians. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Romania.

Details Romainian dictator, Choukesku, overthrow with clear-cut accruacy. Simply amazing. Truly a high caliber biography for the adventure seeking reader.
