In this book ten European friends of Armenia, among them professors and politicians, describe their love for this country. In moving and, at times, funny essays they depict dramatic events, lasting friendships, political struggles. We hear about lavash and brandy, genocide and revival, Yerevan and small God-forgotten villages in Hayastan and Artsakh. 
The authors describe how their interest in Armenia started, how it has developed, and how it continues today. They write about the things in Armenia that touch and inspire them, and they recollect some of their most unforgettable encounters with Armenians.

The authors have different backgrounds and come from different countries in Europe. What they all have in common is a sincere interest in and deep love for the Armenian people.

The following people have contributed to the book: Harald Bothner, Bernard Coulie, Frank EngelBálint Kovács, Svante Lundgren, Jakub Osiecki, Stephen Pound, Kate Royster, Silvia Schmid and Serafim Seppälä.
