                 Redeemed, A Memoir of a Stolen Childhood

                                Pub date June 25, 2024

Redeemed is a gritty, ultimately uplifting memoir about a happy-go-lucky girl who is unexpectedly snatched away from her all-American home—by her long-lost immigrant father.  Instead of finding loving new parents, she faces isolation in a strange, insular household  where heartache, isolation and rejection rule her life, until she beats the societal pressures against women and  finds her way to happiness. The book not only provides a rare window into Eastern European culture  but also reads like a page-turning thriller—with shades of Educated by Tara Westover, Beautiful Country by Qian Julie Wang, Somebody’s Daughter by Ashley Ford, and The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls.                      It is a rise-from-the-ashes  hero’s story of overcoming unbearable rejection, being waylaid by a false religion’s promise of love, and  harnessing the resilience to find the way home.
