'To Romania With Love is more than a snapshot of a strange country at a strange time; it is a vivid, impressionistic hymn to exuberance, of risks taken, of impulses acted upon. Humming with energy, it is at once touching and funny; a rare, brave and honest account of finding love and holding on to it' --Toby Clements, Daily Telegraph 'Tessa is a compelling writer and an equally compelling heroine: a young woman torn between her ambition and her love, between her sense of tradition and her extremely unconventional nature. An extraordinary achievement' --Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Oscar-Winning Director of The Lives of Others
'Fiercely honest, this story of love across a continent, from one end
of Europe to the other, is all the more compelling because it is true' --Professor Alice Roberts, TV Presenter and Author
'A unique and unusual love story, strikingly told, To Romania With Love is a moving account of an impetuous British girl and her love for a young boy and his beleaguered country' --Hugo Vickers, Biographer and Historian
