The Beekeeper of Aleppo
Author(s): Christy Lefteri
The International Number One Bestseller, for readers of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and The Kite Runner.
'This is a novel of international significance. Courageous, provocative, haunting, it will open our eyes' - Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz.
Nuri is a beekeeper; his wife, Afra, an artist. They live happily in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo - until the unthinkable happens and they are forced to flee. But what Afra has seen is so terrible she has gone blind, and so they must embark on a perilous journey through Turkey and Greece towards an uncertain future in Britain.
As Nuri and Afra travel through a broken world, they must confront not only the pain of their own unspeakable loss, but dangers that would overwhelm the bravest of souls. Above all - and perhaps this is the hardest thing they face - they must journey to find each other again.
Moving, powerful, compassionate and beautifully written, The Beekeeper of Aleppo is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit. Told with deceptive simplicity, it is the kind of book that reminds us of the power of storytelling.
