A movie producer has optioned the rights to award winning author and Amazon bestselling book No Paved Road To Freedom by Sharon Rushton. Based on a true story, the book chronicles the story of Cornel Dolana who lives through the communist takeover of Romania after the end of World War II, and Dolana's harrowing escape to freedom.
The producer Michael Cuccolo said, “This book is equally as inspiring as Unbroken and for those of us who take freedom for granted, it is a must read.” Normally the only way to reach a movie producer is through an agent. Cuccolo came to read No Paved Road To Freedom because of a recommendation from his mother. “For two months my mother kept telling me, “You have to read this book!” When he was visiting her over the holidays, he picked up the book. “I had been going through some difficult times. I read the book in three settings, and it has literally changed my outlook on life. If Mr. Dolana can do what he did, then any of us can achieve our dreams and goals. Truly a life changing read!”

Back then, Grandma’s house didn't have electricity or modern heating. Food was cooked with a cast iron wood-burning stove. Over five feet high and almost three and a half feet wide, it was the centerpiece of the kitchen. The stove had an oven, a warming oven, a solid copper water reservoir with a tap, firebox, and a large cook top surface with six lids. We learned to cook on this stove, as did our mother and aunts before us.

Tomorrow would be a little different. The book is available at amazon.com.
