The Beekeeper of Aleppo (Large Print / Library Binding)
This story left me with a deep sense of sorrow that I just can't shake! What a refugee must endure to leave their beloved country behind after witnessing horrendous acts of violence is difficult to comprehend. Those refugees who are fortunate enough to afford it can be smuggled into other countries, but their problems do not stop there. They've left behind their home, their dreams, their culture, and their family. The peaceful beekeeper from Syria endures this refugee nightmare and can find no comparison between bees and humanity. It appears that bees have a better sense of a greater good.
The author wrote this novel from all the stories she experienced while working in a refugee center in Greece. The story provides a much-needed look at refugees who are trapped in their own hell!

“Provocative and intense, this harrowing story of Syrian war refugees will take you on an emotional journey. This book took me well beyond the headlines and touched my soul. Perhaps its greatest strength is Lefteri’s ability to make this unquestionably horrific reality accessible. You will feel an aching need to turn the page, and then you’ll need to share this novel with others. I look forward to putting it into the hands of many readers — we need to see beyond the headlines.”
