an enchanting experience,
This review is from: Along the Enchanted Way: A Romanian Story (Hardcover)
William Blacker's story of life in Romania takes the reader on a fascinating and poingent ramble through a rural experiance that ceased abruptly, in most of western Europe, post 1945. Those who remember the little pockets of tranquility that survived in the remoter places, such as Tristan da Cunha, Lundy, Ascension, Exemoor, Portugal & New Zealand, or listened to tales of such pre war idylls, will find that, until recently, many people in Central & Eastern Europe continued to enjoy that which had been stolen, by progress, in the West. A truly charming & moving read, a wonderful discovery and timely historical record. Many of the real life characters William records step from the pages as familiar as those from a deck of Happy Families playing cards.
