Spanning the entire 20th century, this narrative relates the sad, touching, picturesque, and sometimes funny trials of an Armenian family cast from Turkey to Egypt, France, the United States, Soviet Armenia, then back to France and also England.
The reader, whether Armenian or simply acquainted with Armenians, will undoubtedly confirm the fact that the strength of family ties among the Armenian people has always been a source of mutual aid, self-betterment, and a striving for liberty.
—Gerard Charnoz
