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.

Beautifully written, though affronting portrayal of a Syrian refugee's meandering journey. A fabulous insight into a world we ignore.
Art Malik masterfully brings the words to life. Wonderful.
