From a book review by featheredquill.com:
The Ten-Dollar Dream is undoubtedly an uplifting story of the author’s perseverance and dedication in her pursuit of a happy and fulfilled life, with lessons sprinkled throughout the chapters. Coming from a world of communism in Belarus, where everyone is equal and told what to do, Aksana took a huge risk at a young age by moving to a country that was foreign both in language and in political ideologies. Readers will enjoy and be inspired by the author’s stories of her struggles and achievements while learning pertinent skills to achieve their own success.
