This is the first book in the Transylvanian Trilogy series by author and CALA instructor Roberta Seret. This historical novel Introduces Mica at seventeen-years-old, when her parents are plotting to bring down Ceausescu as he comes to power. They are arrested and she realizes she will be next. In the middle of the night, she escapes Transylvania on her bicycle. But she is not alone - she has taken her father's colored diamonds that were hidden in their basement. Her only fear is that she remembers he had told her, they come from Auschwitz and they may be cursed. The Gift of Diamonds reveals hidden secrets of how Fascism led to Communism which began the seeds of modern-day Terrorism. Free with advance registration, participants will be sent a Zoom link in advance to join the discussion.
