Book ReviewIn Daughter of War, author Marsha Skrypuch creates a historical ovel about how no one should give up on love.

An engaged Armenian couple was pulled apart by Turkish soldiers, forcing them to have hope and fight that someday they will encounter each other once more.This story can classified as a uspense as you never know what ill happen next.

The Turkish government ’ s willingness to deport Armenians makes it a story that drags you at the edge of your seat the hole time.

It is thi faith the belief, that they mus find each other someday, that eeps them wanting to fight and find each other.Throughout the novel, Turkish soldiers treat Armenians as if they hav ot human and give the impression to the world that it is in fact a genocide without a plan.
