Review of Saving My Assassin

Saving My Assassin


In Saving My Assassin, Virginia Prodan tells her own personal story of growing up in Romania under the brutal communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Beginning with an unhappy childhood, Prodan chronicles her struggle to overcome several seemingly insurmountable obstacles, including poverty and abuse.  Discovering the Source of Truth through a friend and a Bible, she became a successful attorney determined to defend the rights of fellow believers. However, Prodan’s success came at a price as it drew the attention of powerful enemies, including Ceausescu himself. She was threatened, arrested, beaten, confined, and survived several assassination attempts. But God preserved her life and she lives to tell her story.


Saving My Assassin is the record of one woman’s fight for survival in the midst of brutal conditions. This page-turning, action-packed account is so riveting it reads like a novel. Heartbreaking, harrowing, inspiring, convicting, and ultimately victorious, the book engages every human emotion from beginning to end, and plays like an Alfred Hitchcock thriller in the theater of the mind. But, most importantly, Virginia Prodan is living proof that God’s love is stronger than fear, and God’s power is strong enough to transform a killer’s heart. Saving My Assassin may be the best non-fiction book of the year, and Virginia Prodan’s story should be told again and again.


I was given a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
