Summary (From the publisher):

"I've been summoned. Thursday, ten sharp." Thus begins a day in the life of a young factory worker during Ceauşescu's totalitarian regime. Her crime? Sewing notes into the linings of men's coats bound for Italy. "Marry me," the notes say, with her name and address. As she rides the tram to her interrogation, she thinks over the events and people of her life under terror. In her distraction she misses her stop and finds herself alone on an unfamiliar street. And what she discovers there makes her fear of the interrogation pale in comparision.
