Author’s fictional debut is sure to stir readers’ hearts with its characters and story

Author Claude Pierre-Jerome engages readers with the release of his first novel, Miserere Nobis: Have Mercy On Us. In this newly published book, everyone will be taken into the world of human trafficking, emigration, survival, and romance. With this book, the author pays tribute to all those who have the privilege to learn what it takes to be a good foreigner; all people are foreigners on earth.

In an early morning of spring 1967, twenty-one-year-old Hadrianna Bobanikov, a resident of Lypnyky, south of Lviv, decided to emigrate from her homeland because of disastrous financial hardship. Her dream was to find wealth in the west. She convinced some family members—uncle, aunt, sister, and her three nieces—to join her in the journey. In a twist of destiny, they became preys of professional traffickers, “the pasos,” who caused them enormous physical and psychological dismay. Despite tragedies and unexpected disarrays, Hadrianna the intrepid, did reach her destination: West Berlin.

In the dreamland, Hadrianna settled down in the Imperial City of Bremen, a historically well-known place because of the countless previous invasions by outsiders. As all other foreigners, Hadrianna struggled hard to integrate and assimilate. She failed to find the peace of mind she hoped for. Wouldn’t it be better for her to stay in her homeland and fight?

But in another twist of destiny, she found a small corner of the world she could finally call home. But whether such place really exists is something readers will have to find out.
