Recent college graduate Elizabeth Endicott travels to Aleppo, Syria to bring aid to the Armenian deportees. She soon finds herself involved with Armen, an Armenian engineer who has lost everything. “The Sandcastle Girls” is told through the modern eyes of Elizabeth’s great-granddaughter, who makes profound discoveries about both herself and the seldom discussed Armenian genocide of WWI.

2nd Tuesday Book Club will continue on November 14,  for a group discussion of “In a Dark, Dark Wood” by Ruth Ware.
