I had a feeling "The Gendarme" would be a good book, and that instinct was on target. Author Mark T. Mustian's fictional story is unusual, set during the Turkish deportation of Armenians during World War I. Not only an engaging story, but an important one for the history it brings to light.
Promising new novels with diverse plotlines and protagonists, the latter ranging from an Irish Catholic schoolboy to a World War I veteran, a retired Boston farm owner to a five-year-old narrator. Brief synopses and links provide detail.
