When Orhan's brilliant and eccentric grandfather, who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs, is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades - old business. But his grandfather has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, Seda, an aging woman in a retirement home in Los Angeles. Over time, Orhan begins to unearth the story that eighty-seven-year-old Seda so closely guards-a story that, if it's told, has the power to undo the legacy upon which Orhan's family is built and could unravel Orhan's own future.

Review:

"Aline Ohanesian draws from her family's own dark history to create a tender, powerful story of love and reclamation. "Orhan's Inheritance" is a breathtaking and expansive work of historical fiction and proof that the past can sometimes rewrite the future." --Christina Baker Kline, author of "Orphan Train" "From its first startling image, "Orhan's Inheritance" will seep under your skin and leave an indelible mark upon your heart. What lucky readers we are to inherit Aline Ohanesian's gorgeous work." --Gayle Brandeis, author of "Delta Girls"

From the Back Cover:

"Breathtaking and expansive . . . Proof that the past can sometimes rewrite the future." --Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan Train

When Orhan's brilliant and eccentric grandfather, Kemal Türkoglu, who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs, is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But Kemal has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, an aging woman in a retirement home in Los Angeles. Intent on righting this injustice, Orhan unearths a story that, if told, has the power to undo the legacy upon which Orhan's family is built, a story that could unravel his own future.

"Stunning . . . At turns both subtle and transcendent." --Los Angeles Review of Books

"To take the tumultuous history of Turks and Armenians in the early part of this century, and to tell the stories of families and lovers from the small everyday moments of life to the terrible journeys of death, to make a novel so engrossing and keep us awake--that is an accomplishment, and Aline Ohanesian's first novel is such a wonderful accomplishment." --Susan Straight, author of Highwire Moon

"Rich, tragic, compelling, and realized with deep care and insight." --Elle

"A book with a mission, giving a voice to history's silent victims." --The New York Times Book Review

"Orhan's Inheritance illuminates human nature while portraying a devastating time in history . . . A remarkable debut novel that exhibits an impressive grasp of history as well as narrative intensity and vivid prose." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"A remarkable debut from an important new voice. It tells us things we thought we knew and shows us we had no idea. Beautiful and terrible and, finally, indelible." --Luis Alberto Urrea, author of Queen of America
