Tales Between the Threads A classic Armenian folk tale about a bookish girl and a lazy prince who have something to teach each other.

In this classic tale of ancient Armenia, retold as a World War II bedtime story, Anait, a bookseller’s daughter, clashes with Vachagan, an intellectually lazy prince, only to fall in love and discover that they each have much to learn from one another. When the prince disappears on a mission to rescue her brother Raffi, who has vanished during a military assignment, Anait must summon all her strength to find them both and bring them home.
