Based on the true story of Melkon Jenanyan...
On the threshold of the 20th Century, Melkon Jenanyan sits alone in a room in the heart of Philadelphia. An intense and stubborn Christian Minister, and the one who must secure their family legacy, he has to make a decision. Will he further complicate his strained marriage by returning to the heart of the Ottoman Empire – as a targeted Christian minority in a Muslim land?
The crux of his life’s meaning hangs in the balance as he struggles to choose between family or his life’s work, peace or a potential war zone. Will he find salvation as a martyr to save his people, or will he choose to save himself?
When I read a really great book, it's like I get sucked into another world. This happened instantly when I read Reclaiming Konia.
