“Mama, Please don’t die.” were the last words John Avedisian spoke to his mother.

All John could do was hold on tight to his little sister Anna and run, into the midst of death that had befallen the Armenian people. Trying to escape the Ottoman Turkish soldiers, John lost hold of his sister. He would never forgive himself for this.

John had tried to find Anna, but it was only when he was introduced to a man called Kerkin, that he would, after nearly thirty years had passed, have a chance of finding her.

Safe Harbor traces Kerkin's search for John's sister, traveling through England, Spain and finally the eastern parts of Turkey, circa 1944, at a time when the world was in the throes of war.

Having seen the ruin of his beloved homeland, John had always worked to recreate Armenia, especially the area known as Karabakh. Relying on the dedication of his grandson David, and leaving his accumulated wealth to him, would be John's legacy.

The Turkish Secret service had other ideas. They would seek to deny any assistance to Karabakh, using whatever means necessary.

Just read this page-turner. I love reading books where it's fact in fiction. A story surrounding true events, but has a compelling ride! Highly recommend it
