Books Info:

Bone Ash Sky free pdf Bone Ash Sky is the sweeping story of an American journalist who goes home to the Middle East to unravel three generations of war and genocide, love and renewal. A powerful work that examines family loyalty and secrets long-hidden in the chaos and horror of war. When Anoush Pakradounian steps off the boat and feels Levantine heat on her cheek like a caress, she thinks she knows where she's going: she thinks she knows who's right and who's wrong. Yet nothing about her family's past is black and white. In 1915 more than a million Armenians were marched into Syria by Turks and killed in the first genocide of the twentieth century. In 1982 Beirut came under Israeli siege for three months and 18,000 civilians died, and another 30,000 were wounded. Anoush's quest for answers is interwoven with the memory of ruined cities and vanished empires: Lake Van before the genocide, Beirut in civil war, Ottoman villas and desecrated churches, Palestinian refugee camps and torture chambers turned into nightclubs. Her search to find out the truth about her father, her grandparents, and her own place in the story, spans four generations and massive upheavals in the Middle East.
