Little Bee by: Chris Cleave

Little Bee

Book #21 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks has been on my bookshelf for years.  I found the audiobook on Overdrive and decided to listen to this instead of physically reading it.  I had a feeling that this would be the best way for me to get to this book.

The audiobook version has one reader but she does distinguish the character’s voice from each other by using different accents.  This is the story of a young Nigerian refugee, Little Bee, who seeks out the couple that she met on a beach in her home country a few years before.  Their meeting was brief but impactful.  It affected everyone’s life for years to come.

Sarah lives in London with her husband and young son and has tried many times to move on from that encounter in Nigeria.  Needless to say, that is almost impossible to do alone.  This is the story of the struggle to forgive and forget as well as the impact that a single decision can make.

Wonderfully written and beautifully read on audio, I gave this book 4 crowns.
