This book, a historical fiction novel, takes place in Armenia.The author,Elgin Groseclose, is very descriptive about the way of life of the Armenians and how they are different from the Turks. The Armenians are peaceful christians who are a minority in Moslem Turkey. (...) What sets this book away from others is that the characters are unique and individual. Each of them has a wonderful personality. I would recommend this book to everyone,becauser of it's realism.The question I have after readind this book is who was in power during the revolution and did Prince Cherninolf ever come back? My strongest reason for recommending this book is that it is very informitive on Turkey and Russia's history.
