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. 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. 'This is a novel of international significance. Courageous; provocative; haunting; it will open our eyes.' Heather Morris; author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz
