The Echo Of Memories: A Memoir From Both Sides Of The Iron Curtainby Lilia McGinnis
Lilia McGinnis takes you on the journey of her unusual life, from the beauty of her childhood in the cities, towns, and mountain resorts of Bulgaria to the fear and horror of American bombs striking her neighborhood, from the struggles and discouragement of living under Communism to the opportunities afforded her as a professional violinist under that same regime, from the discomforts and grief of a refugee camp, to the wonders she discovers in America, from the difficulties of making a living in a new and free country to the goodness and helping-hands of so many people, from shopping in thrift shops in San Diego to standing in the presence of masterpieces and master performances here and abroad.
You will cry with her over and over again as she relives her sorrows. And, you will smile and cheer at her stamina and courage. Most of all, this book offers something to think about regarding how our world was, how it is, and how it could be.
