Summary
  • In 1915, Yerwant is planning to return to Turkey from his home in Venice after being away for forty years, but his plans are ruined by the entrance of Italy into World War I and the genocide of Armenians, including his family
  • "A beautiful, wrenching debut chronicling the life of a family struggling for survival during the Armenian genocide in Turkey, in 1915. After forty years in Venice, Yerwant is planning a long-awaited reunion with his family at their homestead in the Anatolian hills of Turkey. But as joyful preparations begin, Italy enters the Great War and closes its borders. At the same time, in Turkey, the Young Turks, determined to rid their nation of minorities, force his family on a brutal march of hunger and humiliation. We follow Yerwant's relatives as they strain to stay alive and as four children set out on a daring course to reach Yerwant--and safety--in Italy. A novel as lyrical and poignant as a fable."--Publisher's website
