In the early 1900s, the two and a half million Armenians in Turkey lived in relative peace, cherishing their Christian faith and their belief that they were the direct descendents of Noah. With the coming to power of the "Young Turk" government, tolerance for the Armenians was replaced with a desire to eradicate them.^^In The Power and the Glory, World War I is now reaching its bloody conclusion, and the landscape of the world has changed. Still reeling from a brutal massacre ordered by the Turkish government, the Armenian people are now little more than a bedraggled group of orphans, torn from their land and each other. Tatul and Adrine, two Armenian refugees, find themselves in the exotic and scandalous city of Istanbul where they begin the arduous task of gathering enough people to fight to regain their leveled homeland.^ ^The Power and the Glory continues the powerful story from the successful Deliver Us From Evil and is a tale about a strong people searching for hope and courage under the most forbidding circumstances. Treachery and betrayal-even among their own people-hover in each dark crevice of Istanbul, and Tatul is faced with the most difficult choice of his life: risk everything for the mission or guard with his life the woman he loves? As the final remnant of Noah's lineage are reduced to a mere band of survivors, Tatul and Adrine must prepare to sacrifice everything to save the future of their homeland.^
Book 2 of the In the Shadow of the Mountain series continues the riveting tale of Tatul and Adrine, two Armenians caught up in the horrible massacre ordered by the Turkish government during World War I.
