Today's Featured Book and Contest: ORHAN'S INHERITANCE by Aline Ohanesian

When Orhan’s brilliant and eccentric grandfather Kemal --- a man who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs --- is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But Kemal’s will raises more questions than it answers. He has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, an aging woman in an Armenian retirement home in Los Angeles. Her existence and secrecy about her past only deepen the mystery of why Orhan’s grandfather willed his home in Turkey to an unknown woman rather than to his own son or grandson.

Left with only Kemal’s ancient sketchbook and intent on righting this injustice, Orhan boards a plane to Los Angeles. There he will not only unearth the story that 87-year-old Seda so closely guards but discover that Seda’s past now threatens to unravel his future. Her story, if told, has the power to undo the legacy upon which his family has been built.

Moving back and forth in time, between the last years of the Ottoman Empire and the 1990s, ORHAN’S INHERITANCE is a story of passionate love, unspeakable horrors, incredible resilience, and the hidden stories that can haunt a family for generations.
