I’m pleased to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for haunting novel The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri. Thank you to Tracy Fenton and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this moving book.
About the book:
In the midst of war, he found love.
In the midst of darkness, he found courage.
In the midst of tragedy, he found hope.
What will you find from his story?
Nuri is a beekeeper; his wife, Afra, an artist. They live happily in the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo – until the unthinkable happens and they are forced to flee. But what Afra has seen is so terrible she has gone blind, and they must embark on a perilous journey through Turkey and Greece towards an uncertain future in Britain.
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, compassionate and beautifully written, The Beekeeper of Aleppo is a powerful testament to the triumph of the human spirit.

With memorable characters that you can’t help but fall in love with, Christy Lefteri has written an exhilarating story that captured my imagination from the very first page, leaving a profound and emotional impact on me as the story finally drew to a close.
The Beekeeper of Aleppo is without a doubt a heartbreaking read that’s full of horror and despair, but is also a tale filled to the brim with hope and love that will stay with me for a long time to come.

A moving, inspiring and heartachingly beautiful novel that I would highly recommend.
