Yesterday I finished Chris Bohjalian's latest novel "The Sandcastle Girls", about the 1915 Armenian genocide. While I grew up hearing about the 'starving Armenians' I didn't really know much about the actual history.

Tonight I have started "Nothing Daunted" by Dorothy Wickenden, which recounts her grandmother's experiences as a 'society girl' from New York who moves to a small Colorado settlement in 1916 to teach school. Should be interesting!
