BOOK REVIEWS:

“Bohjalian deftly weaves the many threads of this story back and forth, from past to present, from abuse to humanity, from devastation to redemption. His ability to add irony and wit makes the contrasting horrors even more intense. . .Staggering. . .[and] utterly riveting.”Eugenia Zukerman, The Washington Post

“A searing, tightly woven tale of war and the legacy it leaves behind. . .A nuanced, sophisticated portrayal of what it means not only to endure, but to insist on hope.”Nathalie Gorman, Oprah.com

“It takes a talented novelist to combine fully ripened characters, an engrossing storyline, exquisite prose and set it against a horrific historical backdrop — in this case, the Armenian Genocide — and completely enchant readers. The prolific and captivating Chris Bohjalian has done it all with 'The Sandcastle Girls.'”Kim Curtis, The Associated Press
