mobi The Story That Cannot Be Told

The Story That Cannot Be ToldAck when families had enough food and the hot water worked on than just Saturday nights Others are folktales like the one she was named for which her father used to tell her at bedtime But some stories can get you in trouble like the dangerous one criticizing Romania’s Communist government that Uncle Andrei published right before he went missingFe I was fortunate enough to gain access to this story via Edelweiss and the publisher but I first had this book on my radar via Twitter I thought how oh how can I beg for an arc of this book Luckily Edelweiss got it soon after and I gobbled it up To say that this book was amazing wonderful gut wrenching heartbreaking etc is an understatement THE STORY THAT CANNOT BE TOLD took me through a time in history that I was not well educated on and wove together fairy tales and a heroine up against some very real antagonistsThis story follows Ileana who is a story teller at heart She lives in Bucharest with her mother and father After a vital mistake Ileana finds herself being sent away to live with grandparents whom she's never met and hopefully far away from spies who may be watching her family With an uncle who may be publishing illegal works her parents think it best to protect their daughter but Ileana does not immediately take to life at her grandparent's small village Surrounded by the unfamiliar she relies on her stories to guide through the very real threat of communist Romania With heart and strength she grows to love forgive and fight with all she hasThis book is masterfully written and takes you through reimaginings of Romanian folklore that mirrors the real life world around Ileana as she struggles to find her place in her new life and forgive those closest to her Her voice was so strong and at times so very grown up for how young she was But this book is about big decisions and learning to accept those decisions This is a big book with a big heart It's a story about a girl growing up in the shadow of war and illustrates the raw beauty of childhoodThe character development was well done and I particularly enjoyed the chapters of folktales The story itself is one I have never come across before and maybe others will agree with me as reviews pour in that this book should not be missed Books like this are so rare and I am so honored to be one of the first to review it My pre order is in This is one for bookshelf
