Who She Left Behind

WHO SHE LEFT BEHIND is a captivating historical fiction novel that spans multiple generations and delves into the emotional lives of its characters. Set in various time periods, from the declining days of the Ottoman Empire in Turkey in 1915 to the Armenian communities in Rhode Island and Massachusetts during the 1990s, the novel provides a deep immersion into a lesser-known era and the untold stories of the brave and resilient women who became the pillars of reconstructed communities after the Armenian Genocide. It is a story of survival, motherhood, love, and redemption based on the recounted stories from the author's own family history. The narrative is framed by a mysterious discovery made almost six decades later of a pair of Armenian dolls left at a gravesite.
