    By Pennie Mae Cartawick. Author A five star review without a doubt. An extremely heartfelt story of courage and determination centered around two men 'Bastian' and 'Mike' who dare an escape from Romania in the late 1970's, a communist country. On a perilous journey towards western Europe, they face unforgettable danger in their constant battle for freedom. This book is actually a true account of the author and his friend which makes it seemingly more compelling. Speaking on a personable level, it must have been hard to relive these moments for the author while writing these events down on paper for the world to see. The determination of these two friends is surreal and a lot of respect and trust in one another must have pushed their strength even further as they overcame exceptional endeavors through the harsh obstacles from Romania to Italy. Persistence is there escape from the incessant Iron Curtain. Spiraling twists and turns galore, it makes for a fantastic read.

    FANTASTIC READ! While on holidays last month we met this Fab cou FANTASTIC READ! While on holidays last month we met this Fab couple,Mike Anka and his lovely wife Mary Mitchell Anca , after chatting about what books we were reading, Mike told me he had just gotten his first book published, Its a TRUE STORY about his escape with his friend Bastian from Romania in 1979 when it was under the dominance of the Soviet Union during the deadly Communist era. From the first paragraph to the last page it feels like you are on the journey with them, one of the best books I have read in years, and the fact that Mike was filling me in on all the other things that were happening around that time as well made it all the more enjoyable...The book is called WHITE THIRST by Mike Anka and is a fantastic read...thanks Mike for my signed copy.....xx Kay —
