Melania Trump: The Slovenian Side of the Story

This book is a tribute to “good old times” from recent history that shaped everybody that grew up in this territory, including current USA’s first lady. It was written in the same way as my father and many others did build houses around Slovenia and/or ex-yugoslavia to provide shelters for their families. For my English writing debut I gathered few of my dearest friend following my father’s footsteps for successful construction. We are all from the part of Slovenian that is now gaining popularity due to mrs. Melania and do in my opinion have the necessary skills to “construct” this little “house”, including the audio narrated version, which is as part of this book our gift to readers and their friends. You can find the link for free download inside the book, enjoy getting to know us better.
