A story of hope, courage and a new life for three abandoned Romanian teenagers. Set in the orphanages of Romania, the story begins in the early nineties when the west was still unravelling the horrors lurking behind orphanage walls. From the depths of childhood despair to present-day freedom for three boys, the book is an authentic, first-hand account of life in a Romanian village and orphanage.
