Description
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian This novel is the author's 15th book. This spellbinding tale travels between Aleppo, Syria in 1915 and Bronxville, New York in 2012-a sweeping historical love story steeped in the author's Armenian heritage, making it his most personal novel to date. When Elizabeth Endicott arrives in Syria she has a diploma from Mount Holyake College, a crash course in nursing, and only the basic grasp of the Armenian language. The First World War is spreading across Europe and she has volunteered on behalf of the Boston based Friends of Armenia to deliver food and medical aid to refugees of the Armenian Genocide. There Elizabeth becomes friendly with Armen, a young Armenian engineer who has already lost his wife and infant daughter. When Armen leaves Aleppo to join the British army in Egypt, he begins to write Elizabeth letters, and comes to realize that he has fallen in love with the wealthy, young American woman who is so different from the wife he lost. The Sandcastle Girls, Hard Cover, 300 pages ISBN: 9780385534796
