Item Description...
Overview
A thriller steeped in European culture like The Salzburg Connection, Refiner's Fire serves up serious suspense to avid fiction readers. This book's "secret underground society" is not Nazi war criminals, however-it's the persecuted Christian church. Yuri and Alexander Deyneko, separated as teens in postwar times, are reunited thirty-five years later in 1980s Bucharest. Now on separate sides of Nicolae Ceausescu's Iron Curtain, the secret life of one brother, a top army official and clandestine Christian, and the ambition of the other- now the American Ambassador to Romania-puts them on a collision course with each other. Fates hang on an issue of conscience. Great writing propels readers through the plot toward a gripping climax.

Not Quite What I Expected  Jun 9, 2001
I travelled in Romania during the same time period of this book. That got my attention. I hoped to relive the intimate conversations with believers behind the Iron Curtain; I hoped to taste and smell and visualize the rugged and beautiful countryside. I was mildly disappointed.

Bambola's novel is a tale of two brothers separated by time and geography, brought together again as adults in Romania--one an American ambassador, one a Romanian colonel. The cover and description of "Refiner's Fire" led me to believe this would be more male-oriented fiction. It's not. That's not to say that it's a waste of time for male readers; in fact, I appreciated the story and the lessons to be learned. The writing is easy and flowing. The dialogue is generally snappy. I felt that the plot and characters, although fitting, were geared toward a female reader. A number of times, I found the ambassador's reactions to his wife a bit syrupy and/or emotional for a man of his position.

The book reads quickly, and the wake-up call to a lazy American society is needed (particularly within the churches). Bambola does give us some heart-rending facts regarding the persecution others face. Unfortunately for me, though, I never felt like I was taken back to the places or peoples I visited. For those who have never been there, this might be a great introduction.

 
A great story of faith  Mar 27, 2001
Once I started this book I could not put it down. It is the most enjoyable book, I have read in a while. The charcters are interesting, and the plot is exiting. I would recommened this book to anyone.
 
An excellent read!!!!!  Mar 23, 2001
Having been to Romania several times, I found this book very historical, with clear emphasis on the heart of Christian brothers and sisters. Though the historical element of this book is written pre-1989, there is still persecution there(though much more covertly.) This is an excellent read!!!
 
A riveting read  Aug 30, 2000
Refiner's Fire combines a gripping story line with well-drawn characters and a real sense of the time and place in which they live. The book held me captive to the very last paragraph and is particularly fascinating to anyone with an interest in Romania. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys adventure!
 
A GOOD READ  Aug 25, 2000
A CLASSIC, "I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN!" BOOK. AT THE SAME TIME I WAS SUBMERSED IN THIS SOLID, COMPELLING AND PROVOCATIVE NOVEL. I WAS ALSO BEING EDUCATED,COMVICTED AND CHALLENGED BY IT'S AUTHOR WITH APPARENT EASE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE AND I LOOK FORWARD WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION TO SYLVIA BAMBOLA'S NEXT WORK OF CRAFTSMANSHIP.
