Courageous, provocative, haunting, it will open our eyes' Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of AuschwitzIn the midst of war, he found loveIn the midst of darkness, he found courageIn the midst of tragedy, he found hopeThe Beekeeper of AleppoWhat 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. 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 book dips below the deafening headlines, and tells a true story with subtlety and power' Esther Freud'A beautiful novel, intelligent, thoughtful; and relevant.

I'm recommending this book to everyone I care about.

So I'm recommending this book to you' Benjamin Zephaniah'Powerful, thought-provoking and beautifully crafted' Choice Magazine
