Chris Bohjalian
The SandcaSTle GirlS
Bohjalian relies on his Armenian heritage to deliver a book that is tailor-made or grops. The story goes back-and-orth in time between a modern day novelist exploring her amily’shistory, and the story o Elizabeth Endicott, a yong woman rom Massachsetts who jorneys to Syria with her ather to help the Armenian people who are sering nimaginablehorrors in the desert. This is not an easy book to read, Bohjalian does not gloss over theatrocities, bt he manages to oer moments o hope and hmanity throghot. I am stillthinking abot it weeks later.
