"Trenchant...crisp and suspenseful...Strong renderings of Armenia's national nightmare..." Kirkus Reviews Aran Pirian, the twelve year old son of an academician father and musician mother living in 1915 Constantinople, had all of life's essentials and more. The Armenian Genocide intervened, though. Forced into hiding with his little sister, Anahid, found and imprisoned, then sent into the desert borderlands of the Ottoman Empire to escape with a caravan of Armenian deportees, Aran became despondent over all that he lost, his realizations about himself, what he had become, and what he learned. Summoning those who touched his life along the way, Aran seeks to find all that was lost and to reclaim himself.
