Item Description...
In 1915, Armenian Christians in Turkey were forced to convert to Islam, barred from speaking their language, and often driven out of their homes as the Turkish army embarked on a widespread campaign of intimidation and murder. In this riveting book, Margaret Ajemian Ahnert relates her mother Ester's terrifying experiences as a young woman during this period of hatred and brutality. At age 15, Ester was separated from her family during a forced march away from her birth town of Amasia. Though she faced unspeakable horrors at the hands of many she met, and was forced into an abusive marriage against her will, she never lost her faith, quick wit, or ability to see the good in people. Eventually she escaped and emigrated to America. Ahnert's compelling account of her mother's suffering is framed by an intimate portrait of her relationship with her 98-year-old mother. Ester's inspiring stories, told lovingly by her daughter, will give you a window into the harrowing struggle of Armenians during a terrible period in human history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Could a book be anymore timely? This one is  Oct 11, 2007
I have recently read for the second time Margret Ahnert's fascinating story of her mother's horrific ordeal as a victim of the Armenian genocide. I remain amazed at her ability to suffer, forgive and move her life forward.
.
Just today I heard that our Congress has voted to declare this historical event an ethnic genocide. The evidence of the slaughter of millions has been known by the world -- but until this vote, never officially declared. For the first time in the past several years, I feel our government has done something to be proud of.
If Margret Ahnert's deceased mother could only share this day-- one that all Armenian's must have despartely waited for, she surely would give her a big thank you for having the courage and tenacity to tell her story.
It may have been this book that pushed the envelope
which finally got a consensus together to speak the truth. As much as we know of the truth.
If only the proud Turkey of today would face the historic facts squarely--perhaps everyone afftected could begin the healing process.

A Moving Story Beautifully Told ...  Oct 1, 2007
"The Knock at the Door," is a moving story beautifully told, by a devoted daughter who wanted to record her mother's unbelievable suvival.

Every so often.....  Sep 30, 2007
There are plenty of books which grapple with the ills of humanity. But what renders this book so touching and rare, is the time it took Margaret Ahnert to gather the story, organize the tales of an old woman - her adored mother, and allow it to warm and educate the reader. Time, not in the hours of completing the book-writing task, but instead the decades of devotion listening to her mother speak her story. I could imagine the New York afternoons with Ester telling Margaret about her youth - interspersed with the daily life of the grandchildren, the house, business, etc. What tedious joy it must have been for Margaret; taking notes, luring out the evil, yet delighting in those stories which build a life. What a strong old gal Ester was. And what a great daughter is Margaret to know it and have the insight to write such a personal tale of family love and worldly politics. Bravo.
 
Every adult, young and old should read..........  Sep 10, 2007
A wonderfully written book about resilience and survival, about coming of age and ageing. It also deals with lose and moving forward and the importance of family. A throughly "good" read.
 
"Knock" deserves knockout kudos  Jul 24, 2007
In my view, this short book is must reading. With little specific knowledge of Armenia and Armenians, but curious about what really happened, I opened this book slightly fearing that it might be just more dry, tired history. How wrong! This is a beautifully expressed oriental tapestry of perspectives on life. The talented author skillfully weaves together both a moving journal about her visits to her aging mother (think "Tuesdays with Ester") and the shocking, vivid reality of what it takes for an entire people not just to survive but to prevail. Best book I've read in years.
