by way of Betty Taylor (Macon GA): This is possibly probably the most poignant guide I’ve learn so far this yr. Yet the guide is full of attractiveness and love.
Nuri is a beekeeper in Aleppo, Syria. His spouse Afra is an artist. Amidst the Syrian Civil War Afra was once left blind when she witnessed their younger son killed by way of a bomb. Their nephew Mustafa fled Syria previous and is now in England. Mustafa has purchased some beehives and began his personal trade. He begs Nuri and Afra to enroll in him, thus they spark off, becoming a member of 1000’s of different refugees fleeing to what they hope is a greater existence, a more secure existence. It is an extended and danger-filled trek to and thru Turkey after which thru Greece and not using a ensure they’re going to be granted asylum if and after they achieve England.
Theirs is a adventure of transferring thru their grief and rediscovering themselves, in my view and as a pair. Along the best way they meet individuals who will benefit from them, some who will harm them, and a few who will give them the energy to proceed their adventure.
