A Summer Without Dawn: An American Epic

Author : Agob J. Hacikyan

Through the epic story of the Balian family. A Sumer Without Dawn recounts the tragic fate and struggle for survival of the Armenian people during World War I.

Vartan Balian, a fugitive from Ottoman persecution, scours the Turkish Empire under incredible conditions in search of his wife, Maro, ans their son, tomas, both deported from ancestral lands with tens of thousands of compatriots.

Maro and her son manage to escape the ongoing genocide and find shelter in Riza Bey. A wealthy tirkish governor who falls deeply in love with Maro.

Almost four years will pass before vartan and Maro are reunited. Can they overcome the bitterness and doubts of separation and will they be able to forgive and forget each others intervening relationships: hers with Riza bey and his with the passionate Aroussiag, who saved him from certain death at the risk of her own life? And what of their son tomas who mysteriously disappeared from Riza bey's home. If he ever returns, would they want him to find safety in a free Armenia still a dream to them-or in a new life far away in America?

First published in french to huge acclaim, this translation will finally allow the English-speaking reader insight into an often overlooked episode of history and culture through the story of the story of the balian family.
