Nestled safely in the arms of the ancient city of Smyrna, the lives of four families (Armenian, Turkish, Levantine, and Greek) are about to change forever. In the wake of the First World War, Smyrna is about to witness the grief, romance, and hope that comes with the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Giving voice to those who have been silenced, this novel is about a luminous history and culture that has been forgotten in the sands of time. This fictional retelling of a place now gone will make you cherish what you have and remember all that humanity has lost.
