Givers and Takers draws the reader into the lives of Ani Sarkissian and Haig Sarian, surviving descendants of the 1915 Armenian Genocide in Turkey during WWI. A multi-generational love story spanning several continents, it finally unfolds to present day Manhattan and the life of their son, Dr. Raffi Sarkissian.
What They Are Saying About Givers and Takers
Doctor Richard Berjian is an immensely talented writer who brings real issues to the page by drawing me in with characters I want to grab a coffee with and talk until dawn--which is what happens when I'm reading one of his books. In Givers and Takers, Ani is an amazing mother willing to do anything so that Raffi can have a better life in America, and Dr. Raffi Sarkissian is a wonderfully torn hero. The Armenian Genocide is not an easy topic, but the author handles it with such care. Well done!
