More praise for "The Sandcastle Girls":

"Chris Bohjalian is at his very finest in this searing story of love and war. I was mesmerized from page one. Bravo!" -- Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife
"In his latest novel, master storyteller Chris Bohjalian explores the ways in which our ancestral past informs our contemporary lives — in ways we understand and ways that remain mysteriously out of reach. The Sandcastle Girls is deft, layered, eye-opening, and riveting. I was deeply moved." —Wally Lamb, author of The Hour I First Believed
"Bohjalian powerfully narrates an intricately nuanced romance with a complicated historical event at the forefront. With the centennial of the Armenian genocide fast approaching, this is not to be missed. Simply astounding." -- Julie Kane, Library Journal (starred review)
"Bohjalian's powerful novel . . .depicts the Armenian genocide and one contemporary novelist's quest to uncover her heritage. . .His storytelling makes this a beautiful, frightening, and unforgettable read." -- Publishers' Weekly
"An unforgettable exposition of the still too-little-known facts of the Armenian genocide and its multigenerational consequences." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A powerful and moving story based on real events seldom discussed. It will leave you reeling." -- Elizabeth Dickie, Booklist
"The scope of The Sandcastle Girls is almost epic. . .While there are the rich personal stories that his readers connect to, what he has achieved is much larger. Bohjalian has written a compelling and powerful novel that will bring the history of the genocide to a wide audience. The Sandcastle Girls will remain ingrained in your consciousness." -- Wendy Plotkin, The Armenian Weekly
An Indie Next Selection for August 2012
Entertainment Weekly:  “Bohjalian — the grandson of Armenian survivors — pours passion, pride, and sadness into his tale of ethnic destruction and endurance.”

Goodreads: Number one on “Most anticipated summer 2012 books”. Over 4,000 reader have added the book to their queues.
