I read this book this weekend and it was quite difficult to put down!
The good news is that, despite the tragedy of the Armenian genocide and its aftermath, the story of the Hovannisian family is one of hope and one of resilience.
The author did a tremendous job of bringing personalities to life while painting a unique picture through the story of four generations of Hovannisians- Genius!
