Immigration is one of the hottest topics in the news today. The political parties hold radically different views on the subject. A headline on The Week website puts forth the idea that Rubio's presidential dreams were killed by his botched attempt at immigration reform. According to a piece on the Investors Business Daily site, exit polls show two-thirds of Republicans in five states favor a temporary ban on non-citizen Muslims. Senator Jeff Sessions has stated that the US cannot sustain the current levels of immigration. Nearly all the news sites are talking about Donald Trump's infamous wall idea. It seems that everybody wants to come to the US. Why?

We have a good thing. Everybody knows this.

Today people immigrate for many reasons. Prior generations however immigrated to the US for one primary reason - freedom. While today we can all take sides, voice opinions, and argue endlessly about immigration, the one idea we cannot argue about is freedom, for freedom is the most basic of human rights.

Escape from Soviet Communism and the quest for freedom is the theme of 'Quest For Freedom' by David Michael Palladino. Set in the Cold War era, it is the story of the beautiful Romanian, Adriana Corderu, and her quest to obtain freedom by escaping the Iron Curtain.

Palladino produces inspirational fiction for young readers. His works teach important ideals and values. As a former U.S. Army Ranger, former High School Phys-Ed & Health Teacher and Coach, and founder of “Palladino Martial Arts”, he understands the significance of instilling these all-important ideals and values in young people. He utilizes engaging works of fiction as the backdrop to accomplish that goal. This work will be especially appealing to parents, grandparents and educators, and it is pertinent today in light of the world situation.

During the Cold War the world revolved around the conflict between the theologies of communism and democracy. The two main protagonists in this conflict were the United States in the West and the Soviet Union in the East. As Eastern Bloc leaders began to tighten restrictions in the lives of their people, commensurate with their increase in power, there began to emerge, in the East, a group of young people, hard and idealistic, adventurous and courageous. These would become the heroes of the movement of their time. These were the brave young souls who, with inspiration from President Reagan, began to break down the Iron Curtain.

"President Reagan created a brave, tough new nation of patriots in the United States and changed the face of the world," Palladino stated. "This is the story of one of those who was directly affected by the new world perspective of what true freedom should be. It traces this intense time in world history through the adventures of the brave spirit, Adriana Corderu. This story follows this courageous young girl’s odyssey and introduces the fascinating characters who are and who become an integral part of her compelling story."

'Quest for Freedom' has received rave reviews. One reviewer stated, "More native born Americans need to know this story and more importantly appreciate our country as she did." Another said, "The readers become engrossed immediately in Palladino's dynamic effervescent style."
