    Between the Two Rivers – a page turner for most with such a compelling story and characters. But since Mannig was my grandmother “Medzmama” and I knew her, the sadness of her story was so overwhelming to me that periodically I would have to put the book down. I am in complete awe of the girl she was and the determination she had at such a young age is beyond comprehension. I never got to meet or know Mardiros (Medzbaba), but take so much pride in him after reading this story. What a privilege to be their granddaughter. But the person I think who has the REAL determination is the author (Aida) for her perseverence in getting her excellent book published! We are lucky readers……..thank you.
