The Gypsy Saw Two Lives is the memoir of a woman whose life journey takes her from communist Romania to America, the land of freedom, but it also holds many surprises, good and bad. This true story is a fast-paced and entertaining book. It shows the determination of the human spirit, but also the questioning and struggles with unimaginable obstacles along the journey of life. Is there a plan that a Higher Power has for each of us? Do we understand it, or accept it on faith? This memoir offers the author's personal, painfully honest and direct answers to these questions and more. The title was inspired by a gypsy fortuneteller who read Rodica's palm as she was dashing to catch the train that would take her to freedom. The gypsy said, "I see two lives!" Rodica was born a fighter and has had an exciting life, filled to the brim with twists and turns, sadness, happiness and hope. Her goal is to take readers to a deep level of understanding, not only of a different culture, but also of the universal human emotions that are similar, regardless of who we are and our many superficial differences. "Rodica Mihalis tells an extraordinary story that leads from places very unlike ours to here - a place where such extraordinary journeys are not extraordinary. This nation was founded by men and women who crossed an ocean of differences for opportunity and a dream, and this book gives us a tap on the heart, reminding us that such people still come." - Mark Stein, author of How the States Got Their Shapes. http://SBPRA.com/RodicaMihalis
