Moving, compassionate, powerful and of international significance, Christy Lefteri’s novel was born out of her time working as a volunteer for UNICEF. Based in Athens at a refugee centre, Lefteri met and got to know so many of those escaping from harrowing war torn regions. Her story of Nuri a beekeeper and his wife Afra an artist, living a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo, is cataclysmic. When all around them is destroyed by war, they are forced to escape, embarking upon a perilous journey through Turkey to Greece – intent on survival.
