The Spice Box Letters

by Eve Makis - £8.99  Sandstone Press Ltd (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781910124086 | ISBN 10: 1910124087

Katerina inherits a scented, wooden spice box after her grandmother Mariam dies. It contains letters and a diary, written in Armenian. As she pieces together her family story, Katerina learns that Mariam's childhood was shattered by the Armenian tragedy of 1915.
 
Mariam was exiled from her home in Turkey and separated from her beloved brother, Gabriel, her life marred by grief and the loss of her first love. Dissatisfied and restless, Katerina tries to find resolution in her own life as she completes Mariam's story on a journey that takes her across Cyprus and then half a world away to New York.
 
Miracles, it seems, can happen for those trapped by the past, and for Katerina herself.
