Staff Reviews


This book is haunting and beautiful. It’s a homage to Bohjalian’s ancestry and the Armenian Genocide that led into WWI. It has a lingering hold on me. I am reading Lawrence in Arabia by Scott Anderson as well and the two books blend and back each other perfectly.

August 2012 Indie Next List


“Evil thrives in dark and secret places, spots where the world has turned away and forgotten. In 1915, there are many distractions as a world war rages. While attention is focused elsewhere, the Turks unleashed horrific cruelty and death on the Armenians. A young American, Elizabeth Endicott, travels to Aleppo, Syria, to work with Armenian refugees. Her life will never be the same. Armen has lost everything a man holds dear, his family destroyed in the genocide. He befriends the young American and is moved by her zest for life and commitment to helping his people. These are characters you will root for, full of spirit and a desire to make a difference. Epic in scope, this is on my list of favorites for the year!”
