Summary

"I should be dead. Buried in an unmarked grave in Romania. Obviously, I am not. God had other plans."

At just under five feet tall, Virginia Prodan was no match for the towering six-foot-ten-inch, 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 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-listen 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.

Only God!!

This book has impacted my faith more than any other. Like The Hiding Place and God’s Smuggler, I believe it is destined become a classic in Christian biographical literature. God came through every single time for this little woman, and through her, showed his incredible life-changing power and love for all humanity. This book has given me great courage to stand in the gap between good and evil, to speak up for those who have no voice, and to rest solely on the power of the word of God. This book reads like a mystery thriller, right to the very end! Only God could write a book this amazing!!!!

Saving My Assassin--A powerful true story

Would you consider the audio edition of Saving My Assassin to be better than the print version?

Listening to the book pulled my focus to the scenes and feelings that Virginia Prodan conveys in the story of her childhood in an unpleasant home and then life and career as an attorney under the Romanian dictatorship. There are a few twists in the story on the way to the scene with the assassin and that is not the end. I read the print version when it came out and was so pleased to see the audio version that I had to get it as well. The two narrators are very good for this book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Saving My Assassin?

The house arrest scenes when people seem to enter even with the guards present. To comment about the assassin might spoil the book.

Have you listened to any of Matilda Novak’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but the narration for this book was appropriate for this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The "creepy" sensation for the tense parts of the book is reoccurring and lasts a while after the book is finished. There were only a couple of tears this time with the audio, but I had read the print version before.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this book highly for a small look into life in a dictatorship and as a memoir with a positive outcome. This book might be really good for students. Virginia Prodan has studied, trained, and practiced law under two very different systems of government and is a very passionate speaker.

Truly a fascinating story

Who can imagine a 100 pound woman standing against a corrupt government like she did. Her life was on the line every day.

Exceptional story of life under Communism

Wow. Truly amazing and inspiring. The story was absolutely compelling. It was a fascinating window into life in a Communist country, and demonstrates how precious freedom is. We take that for granted in the U.S. Virginia's faith and reliance upon God in the face of threats and beatings amazed me.

The narrator was average, and had only a few voices for the characters, but she didn't detract from the story.

I particularly enjoyed the piece by the assassin at the end of the book.

All in all, I highly recommend this book.
