Book Synopsis
RODINA is the story of our family. "Rodina" is the Czech word for "FAMILY" which to the Czechs is a hallowed word. They have a deep sense of loyalty to family, God and country, which can stretch as far forward as it does backward. Your roots are in Czechoslovakia, children, deep in that beautiful, ravaged country, ancient and historic, where my father was born, left as a small child and where he longed to return but never did. Its national anthem never failed to bring tears to the eyes of my parents, grandmothers and even myself. To this day I feel a strong sense of emotional attachment to Bohemia, that part of Czechoslovakia that was Homeland to my people. I hope someday you will take the time to study into the turbulent, illustrious history of the country and feel the stir of pride in your diluted Czech blood. It is a part of what has made America great. Rodina is written in first person and therefore an "Elsie Eye View" of the way things were over six generations.
