Bigotry, still a plague in the 21st century. We live in a world of racism without racists.
This memoir is a desperate scream of a human of inferior birth, a prisoner of geography.
I am a very shy person, humble and respectful, so when that woman (blueblood descendant) cleaned the floor with my human essence, I had no power, knowledge, or desire to defend myself. All I could think about was that I wished to be dead.
“Useless Romanian!” she shouted every time she saw me. “Stay out of my sight! You make me feel sick. You shouldn’t have been allowed to come here.”
I didn’t dare to say a word, to look at her, or to even cry. I just prayed to God to take me from this world because I didn’t fit into it.
A naïve farmer’s daughter, who never saw a computer before the age of 24, goes to Italy,
one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
Here, her dreams turn into a perpetual nightmare. Everything and everyone is against her.
Attractive, single, and humble she becomes a target of unfaithful men and an innocent victim of their wives.
Alone, terrified, abused and on the edge of insanity, she contemplates death. But the love for her family stops her.
Slavery at the end of the 20th century, exploitation, tears, solitude, mockery, phobias, are the key points of this poignant story of survival. Many immigrants and emigrants, especially women, will relate to it.
