Acclaimed poet and journalist Dunya Mikhail tells the harrowing stories of several women who managed to escape the clutches of Daesh (ISIS). Mikhail extensively interviews these women - who've lost their families and loved ones, who've been sexually abused, psychologically tortured, and forced to manufacture chemical weapons - and as their tales unfold, an unlikely hero emerges: a beekeeper, who bring these women through the war-torn landscapes of Iraq, Syria, and Turkey, back into safety.
