New book
The Beekeeper of Aleppo
by Christy Lefteri
To be discussed the 23rd of July Protected content

After a successful and interesting discussion about Pachinko, we have a new book. I believe would be interesting to analyse and compare both books or similar books you have read.

About the book:
The Beekeeper of Aleppo

In the midst of war, he found love
In the midst of darkness, he found courage

In the midst of tragedy, he found hope
The Beekeeper of Aleppo
What will you find from his story?
Nuri is a beekeeper; his wife, Afra, an artist. They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo – until the unthinkable happens. When all they care for is destroyed by war, they are forced to escape. 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.

On the way, Nuri is sustained by the knowledge that waiting for them is Mustafa, his cousin and business partner, who has started an apiary and is teaching fellow refugees in Yorkshire to keep bees.

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.
