The joys and triumphs of friendship and love amidst tragedy are the heart of this beautifully told story of two unforgettable, defiant Armenian women: Dzovig, a young girl growing up in the shadow of the Armenian genocide, and Vecihe, the mother of Dzovig's lover, Tomas, who dies suddenly and mysteriously. The novel traces their lives as they come to terms with the legacies they carry - legacies that are both personal and national - in a story enriched by love: the young love of Dzovig and Tomas that culminates in tragedy; the determined but rocky affair between Vecihe and Bedros, who meet in the small mountain village of Vecihe's childhood; and Dzovig's unlikely encounter in Portugal with Tito, suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, who teaches her to live again. Between the Stillness and the Groveunearths the horror of war and reminds us of the healing power of art in what is sure to be acclaimed as a major new work of fiction.
