Bought this book out of curiosity and so glad I did. It's a very personal memoir and it's like the writer's say beside you telling you it all. It's quite an amazing journey through amazing historic times and fascinating countries - but unlike other books that do that it's really well, human. So, you get a rollocking ride through history and fascinating countries and times but unlike history books or many memoirs you get a real flavour of what this life, these times and places was really like - you're there with the people, the smells, the colours and the detail. Read it!

Carineh's story kept me enthralled from the first to the very page. Her colourful family and friends took me right back to my own roots in Scotland, where community spirit is incredibly strong. I was utterly captivated by Carineh's adventures as she grows up in Teheran, falls in love with the handsome Caro and struggles as a newly-wed, all to the background of pre-revolution in Iran. The exploits of her children, effervescent Sophie and charming Alex, as they travel through the Middle East, Europe and the US - made me laugh out loud. It's such a super book about a fascinating woman - I hope there will be more.

Format: Paperback
This is a delightful memoir, Armineh Ohanian's 'The Apple Tree Blossoms in the Fall' tells the fascinating story of her life, beautifully written, with a charming honesty and engaging humour.

Beginning with the story of how her family fled the from the Armenian genocide to the safety of Iran, the author describes her idyllic childhood in a country that was once so beloved to her, and why she was so reluctant to leave. We hear of her journeys through the Middle East, the Soviet Union, Europe and the United States.

Armineh Ohanian tells stories of her adventures around the world and of the emotional journeys that accompanies them.

The author lays bare so much of her life; she tells stories of personal and political upheavals, stories of adversities and the challenges she's been faced with, and of the incredible courage and strength she has retained throughout them all.

Her story-telling is wonderfully interwoven with acute observations and an endearing sense of humour throughout.

A history lesson, a love story, and a rather good read. Highly recommended.

A friend recommended this book - I bought it and haven't been able to put it down. It's a rich and warm memoir of a woman's journey through life as she grows up in pre-revolution Iran, her escape from Tehran with her young children on the last Pan-Am flight out of the country, and how she brings up her family in Spain, the UK, Germany, finally putting down roots in the USA. It is a walk through a troubled history told with humour and warmth and real insight into the Armenian community. I found it inspiring. A must-read.
