So So Fine!

Refiner's Fire by Sylvia Bambola is one of those books you'll remember years down the road. For one, the story immediately pulls you in as we're taken to a refugee camp in the 1980's during Nicolae Ceausescu's regime in Romania. Two victims of that regime -young twin boys, are the lives we watch as one is sold to an American and the other remains in Romania, only to many years later cross paths in much different circumstances. Bambola blends skillfully true events (events in the book represent a composite of true happenings experienced by the Romanian Underground church) and fiction. A suspenseful plot and a powerful testimony both enlightens and intrigues the reader. You'll want to read other Bambola books when you finish this one!
