The lives of Little Bee, a young Nigerian girl, and Sarah, a successful editor of a hip UK magazine, collide after a series of horrific events. The book begins two years after these events that Little Bee and Sarah both escaped. Sarah goes on to raise her young son Charlie with her husband back in the UK while Little Bee finds herself in a British immigration detention center. When Little Bee is released from the immigration center mistakenly, she knows of only one person in the UK to look up...Sarah's husband Andrew. With Little Bee back in the picture Sarah and Andrew are flooded with memories of the past years events that they can no longer deny occurred, and Sarah cannot help but feel a tremendous responsibility for Little Bee. Little Bee and Sarah have no choice but to face their past head-on in this beautifully written book.
