Reviews and comments on
Nobody's Child

This is historical fiction at its gritty best, with compelling characters, heart wrenching choices and unspeakable horror.

Highly Recommended.

Joan Marshall, teacher librarian, CM Magazine

This novel is a wonderful story of friendship, hope and family. The one constant throughout the ever-changing difficulties and ordeals faced by the characters is their desire to remain with, or return to, their family. The novel portrays the characters as extremely realistic, very life-like, everyday people...

It is a wonderful read that I would highly recommend.

Adrienne & Cait of Guelph, Ontario for Bookhooks (

Marsha Skrypuch includes references to the three major massacres against Armenians: first, Adana in 1909, then the genocide in 1915; then, she takes us back to the Hamidian massacres in 1896... In this way, the novel presents the three great catastrophes that befell Armenians in a twenty-year period and provides an important background and context to the psychology of the Armenian characters.

...The characterizations are strong. We care for the children and admire their strength. They and their parents are victims, yet the children refuse to give in. They always accept the struggle to survive in the hope of being reunited. They have chances for a safer life but refuse to give up their Armenian identity for it.

...We must thank Marsha Skrypuch for using her talents once again to tell a story from our past that will help explain to younger generations an unfortunate part of our history. At the same time, the characters in the novel exhibit the strength and resolve of Armenians to survive. I urge you to read Marsha Skrypuch's compelling novel, Nobody's Child.
