I picked this book because the cover looked so inviting and I needed a fun book. It is about a woman that returns home from fighting in Afghanistan and how she fights back to find a new place of identity in her home town.

Little Bee
Review
The drowning of innocence and the anarchic consequences of the global reach are hardly confined to Achebe’s Nigeria of yesteryear or to the colonial life the young woman encountered. The focus is on slavery and survival when she comes to London and goes back home with a journalist that she befriends.

Story about a modern family and the husband has a secret that he put in a letter to be opened after he dies. As fate would have it the wife finds it after about 10 years of marriage. The rest is interesting reading.
