Little Bee

by Chris Cleave, 271 p.

Little Bee is a Nigerian refugee.  Sarah Summers O'Rourke is a widow and writer.  How their stories collide is as rife with tragedy as it is with hope.  Told from both perspectives, Little Bee is breathtaking, difficult, and wonderful all at once.

The only reason I might say it was painful to read is that there is so much emotion in the book that I had to put it down often.  Read it, do.

  1. This is a really good book, Chelsea. I loved the way the two stories intertwined. Glad you like it, too.
