    British couple Andrew and Sarah O'Rourke, vacationing on a Nigerian beach in a last-ditch effort to save their faltering marriage, come across Little Bee and her sister, Nigerian refugees fleeing from machete-wielding soldiers intent on clearing the beach. The horrific confrontation that follows changes the lives of everyone involved in unimaginable ways.

    "Beautiful and sad"
    Overall

    At first, I didn't think I'd like this book if it was going to be filled with lengthy metaphors as in the description of the British pound, but somehow by the time I was asked to agree to view a scar as a thing of beauty, I was hooked. The scenes in this book are so poignant and heart wrenching that I came to see them as beautiful as well. Yes, I cried through much of the book and yes, it might have been nice to have everything tied up with a bow on it at the end of the story but then, I might have felt duped if it had. The writing is lyrical and I enjoyed the narration tremendously. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone with a heart.
