YEOVIL LITERARY FESTIVAL 2021
JOHNSON STUDIO- THE OCTAGON THEATRE
Brought up in London, Christy Lefteri is the child of Cypriot refugees. Her novel, The Beekeeper of Aleppo, is an international bestseller, selling well over a million copies worldwide.
Her new novel Songbirds is set in her native Cyprus, it's a powerful, redemptive story of loss, of the triumph of the human spirit, and of the enduring love of a mother for her child.
Nisha has crossed oceans to give her child a future. By day she cares for Petra's daughter; at night she mothers her own little girl by the light of a phone. Nisha's lover, Yiannis, is a poacher, hunting the tiny songbirds on their way to Africa each winter. His dreams of a new life, and of marrying Nisha, are shattered when she vanishes. No one cares about the disappearance of a domestic worker, except Petra and Yiannis. As they set out to search for her, they realise how little they know about Nisha. What they uncover will change them all.
