What people around the world are saying about Footsteps in the Snow

"...I was so riveted I couldnít put it down. What an extraordinary story..."

- AH, San Francisco, CA


I couldn't put "Footsteps in the Snow" down once starting, very unusual for me. I was simply absorbed from the beginning and had to complete reading that same day. Rom was indeed a courageous man who loved his family dearly.

As they say "There is no fear in love." My heart was pounding at a million miles an hour when Rom crossed into Poland, then back into Russia in search of his wife and child. Those train journeys were even more frightening. Congratulations Roma on a wonderful story, very moving with a fabulous collection of photographs.

"The story of your Family was captured by you very well and it taught me, most of all, how important and precious family ties are ... one could feel empathy for the conditions and events that took place and only wonder if one could find the same determination and courage ..."

"I loved the book. I thought it was it was a great abstract. I wanted more."

"I like the book very much. I read it fast. I wanted to know what happened and how your family got out of that situation. The pictures help puting a face on the persons. I find the story well balanced in the way you insert events and information from the past into the story, very smooth reading. I learned a lot from the Postsciptum about the political situation in Poland. It is like resetting the clocks at the right time, "metre les pendules a l'heure", setting things straight. Congratulations for this account of an extaordinary escape from Siberia."

"I have read your book twice and must congratulate you on a story well told. I felt the apprehension as Rom crossed the frontier into Poland and back into Russia and I felt the fear as I travelled those train journeys with your parents. You are fortunate to have so many treasured photographs of pre-war days."
