From a desperate stowaway to Canada’s luxury custom home builder and philanthropist, The Grinding of the Millstone is a tale of a pursuit of a seemingly far-fetched dream, the power of hope, and unshakable faith in God. This book is a real-life portrayal of God's faithfulness and grace and defiant power of the human spirit.
Vasile was born and raised in a mountainous region in northern Romania. Toughened by hardships of life in a rugged landscape, his eyes were drawn upward by the mountains to search for something greater...something beyond and greater than himself. He was, and he still is a dreamer! His dream of a better life took him on an epic journey through war-torn Yugoslavia on foot across treacherous mountains to a precarious existence as an illegal laborer in Greece and ultimately, on a near-tragic voyage across the Atlantic with a company of stowaways in a cargo shipping container to Canada.
Somewhere in dangers and privations, he came to a God who was interested intimately in his well-being, who, in his love and grace, had his hand on Vasile's life.
"I hope that this book will remind you of the fact that the defining factor in your life’s journey is resourcefulness not resources; and that you are resourceful beyond imagination!" (Vasile Caniuca)
