At just under five feet tall, Virginia Prodan was no match for the towering 6’10” gun-wielding assassin the Romanian government sent to her office to take her life. It was not the first time her life had been threatened—nor would it be the last. As a young attorney under Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal communist regime, Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth. When she finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, Virginia accepted the divine call to defend fellow followers of Christ against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land. For this act of treason, she was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, placed under house arrest, and came within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself. How Virginia not only managed to elude her enemies time and again, but how she also helped expose the appalling secret that would ultimately lead to the demise of Ceausescu’s evil empire is one of the most extraordinary stories ever told.

A must-read for all generations, Saving My Assassin is the unforgettable account of one woman’s search for truth, her defiance in the face of evil, and a surprise encounter that proves without a shadow of a doubt that nothing is impossible with God.

Saving My Assassin is a book that will keep you hooked from the first page up to the last and believe me, I don’t read much under the autobiography genre, especially a memoir. And to be honest I’m not really a religious person, I don’t pray much or attend church masses but that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in God and the possible things that faith in Him could do. This book astonishes me because it shows how a person could be so powerful and courageous when being guided by their strong faith in God. Continue reading “Book Review: Saving My Assassin”
