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.
The only thing that kind of disappointed me is when I took the book’s subtitle “I should be dead. Buried in an unmarked grave in Romania. Obviously, I am not. God had other plans.” LITERALLY. Yes, hahahah. I thought Virginia was indeed buried somewhere in Romania like what happened to Black Mamba of Kill Bill. *facepalm* But then it was just a metaphor—and that line could catch a reader’s attention, and be curious of the facts about how did she die? or how/where was she buried?. So spoiler alert: nope, Virginia neither died nor buried somewhere in Romania.
Moving on, at the last part of the book, there are twenty discussion questions. I’d like to try answering them all but I don’t think I’ll be able to answer some of the questions, I’ll still give it a shot. 😀
