Who She Left Behind

by Victoria Atamian Waterman

Who She Left Behind” is a captivating historical fiction novel that spans generations and delves into the emotional lives of its characters.  Set in various time periods, from the declining days of the Ottoman Empire in Turkey in 1915 to the Armenian neighborhoods of Rhode Island and Massachusetts in the 1990s, the novel completely immerses its reader in a lesser-known era and the untold stories of the brave and resilient women who became the pillars of reconstructed communities after the Armenian Genocide.

It is a story of survival, motherhood, love, and redemption based on the recounted stories from the author’s own family history. The narrative is framed by a mysterious discovery made almost six decades later of a pair of Armenian dolls left at a gravesite.


"Victoria Waterman's captivating debut is a searing, multi-generational account of one family's legacy of love, trauma and resilience."
~ Aline Ohanesian, author of Orhan's Inheritance

"The author’s poetical language mesmerized this reader through the narrative. Read this book. Let your soul rest in the belief there are many good people, there are many kind hearts, there is trust and true love, and selfless dedication. There are strong women who made it possible to preserve their heritage, traditions, and the future for their nation. Bravo, Victoria Atamian Waterman!"
~ Marina Osipova, Amazon reviewer
