Orhan's Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian

My rating: 4.9

This is the story of Orhan, whose Dede/grandfather Kemal has just died, and Seda, an 87 year old woman in a Los Angeles Armenian retirement community.  The story moves back and forth in time between the last years of the Ottoman Empire and the 1990's.  

I loved this book on so many levels - the wonderful writing, the characters, the plot and for the education on a piece of history that I was mainly unaware of.  This is definitely going to be featured in my May Favorites.
