Instead she mostly found bigotry, misogyny, cruelty and abusive conditions that bordered on slavery. She writes about her experiences in Ten Years in Italy, Three Weeks a Human.

Headline – I was reduced to tears
I am not fond of memoirs, but I wanted to read this to understand the reality of immigration. I had no idea of what is going on with these humans on the pursuit of happiness. I was very sad to discover the untold story of a person who did nothing wrong, yet treated like she was a delinquent. I felt the unbearable pain of Cristina. The struggles and the hopefulness. But I also felt the honesty in declaring that not all It

"Wow, wow, wow. What an engaging read! What an amazing movie could be made after this incredible story. I can’t wait to see what else this author has to offer. A question I have: where is the Asiago chapter? On its way, right?"

Cristina G. was born and raised during a very oppressive communist regime.
Being the eleventh child (and a seventh daughter) of a farmer, Cristina thought her life path was sealed until she read “Les Misérables” by Victor Hugo and dreamed of being a writer.
Cristina writes because she has a lot to say.
