LNL Book Club: April 2016
“A novel that delves into the darkest corners of human history & emerges with a tenuous sense of hope.” – Kirkus Starred Review
“[An] impressive debut novel . . . Such sorrow in Ohanesian’s hands is not a heavy burden for the reader. Through the beauty and humanity of her central characters, the story transcends suffering . . . ‘A white day sheds light; a dark day sheds darkness,’ Orhan tells Seda on his first visit. Ohanesian’s novel is that ‘white day.’” – The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
