Product Overview

In this riveting book, first-time author Margaret Ajemian Ahnert relates her mothers terrifying experiences as a young woman during the oft-overlooked Armenian genocide in Turkey at the beginning of the twentieth century. At age 15, Ahnerts mother was separated from her foster family during a forced march away from her birth town of Amasia. She narrowly avoided kidnapping, faced unspeakable horrors at the hands of soldiers, and was forcibly married to an abusive Turkish wagon-driver. Throughout her ordeal, she had faith and reminded herself that this, too, will pass, a mantra which enabled her to survive these nightmarish experiences. Eventually, she escaped captivity and was able to make her way to America.
