Nuri is a beekeeper and his wife Afra is a painter. In the morning, Nuri wakes up in the morning to hear the call to prayer before driving to her home in the countryside. On weekends, Afra sells its colorful paintings in an open market. They live simple lives, rich in family and friends, on the hills of the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo - until something unexpected happens. When everything they love is destroyed by war, Nuri knows they have no choice but to leave their home. But escaping from Syria will not be an easy task: Afra loses sight, leaving Nuri wandering in her misery and dangerous journey across Turkey and Greece toward an uncertain future in Britain.

Nuri is only supported by the knowledge that they are not waiting for his cousin Mustafa, who started a beehive colony in Yorkshire and teaches other refugees to keep bees. As Nuri and Afra traverse the broken world, they must not only face the pain of their indescribable loss but also the dangers that will overtake even the brave souls. Above all, they have to take a difficult journey back to each other, a path that was once familiar but given to an outsider by the tragedy of migration.

Travel, intimacy, and well-written, The Aleppo Beekeeper is the book of our times: a novel that reminds us at the same time that peaceful and normal lives can be completely elevated in unimaginable ways and bring a trip to distant lands near home, never to be forgotten.
