Read an excerpt:

After we came back to Constanta, Mother Voica was introduced to Mr. George whom we the children use to call Uncle George. 

Uncle George was a good man who loved my mother and loved us. Uncle George was from Suditi village in Ialomita County. His family was financially well established so they sent George to a theological seminary to become a priest. After studying for two years, Uncle George decided that becoming a priest was not his vocation; his dream was to see the world.

Uncle George left the seminary and got a job on a commercial ship as a simple sailor. Now he was a free man able to travel and read without religious restrictions. Uncle George was an incredible reader – books, newspapers, anything that he was able to get his hands on. Mother Voica used to call it the reading virus. Unfortunately, while reading, he was smoking nonstop. Most importantly, when he married Mother Voica, Uncle George saved our lives.
