New Book Shows How a Fragment of History Changed Many Lives

Share Article

Dr. Michael Hansen shares a collection of stories about people who endured war and societal change.

Before the Soviets arrived in 1944, Romania was a free country. It was in the year 1943 when a man was born, but he was much too young to remember what it was like to live with liberty and without fear. Today, the story of his life and that of others who have experienced the hardships of the occupation is shared in The Message, an Xlibris release.

Freedom was a painful subject at the time of the Soviets, and there was a deep desire for it across the country. Through a collection of stories, readers will witness how that desire pushed people to move forward with their lives and hope for a better future.

Part historical, this book gives a personal view of how people lived during a time much different from today. Characters who have seen and experienced much of the world’s sadness will leave a mark in each reader, leaving them with the wisdom of the age. Based on true-to-life experiences, this book allows people to look back and appreciate how history has affected many lives in so many different ways.
