Product description

Review

“Bohjalian powerfully narrates an intricately nuanced romance with a complicated historical event at the forefront. With the centennial of the Armenian genocide fast approaching, this is not to be missed. Simply astounding.” Author: Library Journal

“Masterful ... a near-perfect work of historical fiction ... The contemporary and historical sections each have a different flavor, but both are well written and engaging with interesting, three-dimensional characters ... Enlightening.” Author: Booklist

“Bohjalian deftly weaves the many threads of this story back and forth from past to present, from abuse to humanity, from devastation to redemption. His ability to add irony and wit makes the contrasting horrors even more intense ... Staggering [and] utterly riveting ... [A] valuable and powerful piece of evidence pointing to the undeniable.” Author: The Washington Post

“Cool and lucid ... With Armen and Elizabeth, Bohjalian has fulfilled the duty of anyone seeking to document a genocide―he ensures that we don’t look away.” Author: The Boston Globe

"Bohjalian's powerful novel ... depicts the Armenian genocide and one contemporary novelist's quest to uncover her heritage ... His storytelling makes this a beautiful, frightening, and unforgettable read." Author: Publishers Weekly

“[A] great read ... An affecting tale set at the time of a lesser-known holocaust, 1915’s Armenian genocide.” Author: PEOPLE

"An unforgettable exposition of the still too-little-known facts of the Armenian genocide and its multigenerational consequences." Author: Kirkus Reviews
