Orhan's Inheritance Bridges the Gap

Today is the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. With all areas of international attention  from Pope Francis to Kim Kardashian centered on Armenia, we are proud to publish Orhan's Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian. Novels like this one help us all understand the unimaginable, give us a way to think about the unthinkable, and provide a path for connecting with others.

"There's only about about 6 to 8 inches between an open book and a human being's heart," Aline told NPR's Lynn Neary on "Weekend Edition."

And her book is bridging that gap, helping readers connect and understand beyond death tolls and politics. After all, Orhan's Inheritance was born from a very personal story, one Aline's great-grandmother told her. 

Already the #1 Indie Next Pick for April and an Amazon Editors' Featured Debut for the month, Orhan's Inheritance will make the headlines and the history feel like your own family story.
