Synopsis: LUBA’S TRAVELS is the first-person account of Luba Ruzicka. The daughter of an eminent Slovakian cardiologist, she is born on Christmas Eve 1940 in Bratislava and spends her earliest years in the shadow of World War II. LUBA’S TRAVELS is much more than the classic immigrant’s story and will appeal not only to the millions of people who have traveled from far away to make America their home. It will speak to every wife and mother who wanted a life of her own, every businessperson who struggled to realize a dream, every person who ever believed in him or herself. It is about the attempt to keep a transplanted culture alive in a foreign land, about the never-ending yearning for home, about the education of a lifetime, and about the travels—geographical, psychological, and emotional—of an extraordinary woman. It is about the travels of the heart.

About the Author: Luba Haviar was born in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia in 1940, the daughter of the eminent Slovak cardiologist Dr. Vladimir Haviar. She attended Comenius University where she majored in foreign languages, centering on French. Her early plans to travel to Africa to teach French were derailed when she met the Slovakian doctor Fano Ruzicka. They fell in love, married and started their journey to America. After stops in New York, Wisconsin and Arizona they finally settled, with their two children Vladimir and Renata, in Taylor, Texas, just outside Austin. Fano went to work at the Johns Community Clinic and Hospital and Luba began her travel agency "Luba's Travel". She now lives in The Hills, TX, near Austin, and has four American grandchildren.
