XLIBRIS, December 2019

A MAGIC JOURNEY TO THINGS PAST brings together five generations through the grandmother’s memories. As the recorder of time, her role is to keep the family’s history and traditions alive. Curiosity, magic, and childhood’s mythology are the thread of adventures. The book is divided into three chapters:

Part I: What I’ve Done as a Little Girl

Part II: The Planet of Pleasures (Grandma’s Son Story)

Part III: Lunch with Granddaughters (A Matter of Love).

The chapters range from the grandmother’s early age to those of her son and granddaughters, all taking place on two continents at different stages of the past and present century.

A close up of a colorful background

Mirela Roznoveanu is a native of Romania who immigrated to the United States. Her literary works in Romanian and English include critical essays, novels, poetry, and journalism. She lives in many languages at once and multiple expressions of literary forms. Her slogan is, “I am curious; therefore, I am.” Mirela Roznoveanu is among those writers and literary critics who sought over recent years to turn the energy of their native cultures into an intricate work with significant moral and aesthetic connotations.

Alexandra Conte is a musician, teacher, author, and illustrator with a classical music background. In affiliation with the Juilliard School of Music and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she has mastered writing and composition, focusing primarily on works for children.
