Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian.
It’s 1915, and Elizabeth has volunteered to help deliver food and medical aid to refugees of the Armenian Genocide during the First World War. There she meets Armen, a young Armenian engineer who has already lost his wife and infant daughter. Years later, their American granddaughter, Laura, embarks on a journey back through her family’s history, uncovering a story of love, loss, and a wrenching secret that has been buried for generations.
Copies of the book are available at the library.
