Read from July 08 to 11, 2012

This story moved me in ways that made me thankful that humans can persevere through the worst. This story kept me up the night I finished it. I couldn't get it out of my mind.

As always Mr. Bohjalian weaves a masterful story in with the facts of the Armenian genocide. The story of the Endicott's and Petrosian's is an important one. For their granddaughter, it was about understanding her grandparents and her history.

I can't recommend this novel enough. It will break your heart and make your stomach wretch for the things that we humans do to each other in the name of religion and power.
