The Beekeeper of Aleppo

The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Thank you to NetGalley and Zaffre for a digital review copy.

This is a well written, thought provoking and heart breaking story. I confess that despite seeing images of the Syrian bombings and images of refugees travelling across Europe, I knew very little about their plight.

This is not a relaxing read, tackling many difficult subjects but I would be happy to recommend it to anyone age 16+.

Thank you to Christy Lefteri for bringing Nuri, Afra and their family to life. The descriptions of life in pre-war Aleppo are beautiful. The story moves seamlessly backward and forwards in time.
