About this title


Nancy Kricorian's first novel is an exuberant and magical tale of an Armenian woman's life, spanning from childhood in Ottoman Turkey to grandmotherhood in modern America. In vivid, poetic prose, Zabelle recounts the story of a lively heroine whose ordinary life is infused with the ghosts and memories of her extraordinary past.

From the Back Cover:

As Zabelle's family assembles for her funeral in present-day Massachusetts, it becomes clear that her children hardly knew her. But as this alternately comic and heartbreaking novel unfolds -- beginning with Zabelle's survival of the 1915 Armenian genocide in Turkey and her subsequent emigration to America for an arranged marriage -- an unforgettable character emerges.
