Format: Paperback
Croatia has a wonderful and glorious history. My four grandparents came to America from Croatia. However, there lurks in some of the small villages is a destructive culture where alcoholism destroys the fabric of the family. The author takes us into her home with such descriptive words that I find myself seeing, tasting and feeling what she felt as a little girl. I was begging for a happy ending to such a horrible story and she did not disappoint me. A great book if you want to visit a village in Croatia with no support system for a mother who was trying her best to do God's will.

Format: Paperback
A true picture of a difficult life, where dual standards are a daily practice, is at the core of author Katarina Tepesh well written and moving family history. The father, a chronic alcoholic, possesses some positive trends in his association with folks outside his family. At home, however, under constant influence of alcohol, he is a harsh and cruel person, lacking love and respect not only for his very religious and submissive wife, but also for his six children, three boys and three girls. Frequent mistreatments of his wife, often in the presence of children, is a heart-breaking insight into a family living under constant fear. The extreme poverty and no place to turn for help, left the family with a feeling of being locked into an impossible situation. A highly recommended reading.

This book was the selection for a theme reading group of a government child protective agency. It was read to commemorate domestic violence awareness month. We all learned from this writer It described an engaging modern history of Croatia as well as the writer's immigration experience to the U.S. Its description of domestic violence at the hands of a violent alcoholic father is graphic and disturbing. It has lessons about the need for intervention by law enforcement, the Church, and social service agencies. It is clear that this is a societal problem everywhere. It is not only "a private family matter." The book also describes the consequence of family violence to future generations. I would recommend this book without hesitation
