“And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I discovered the elusive magic I had only ever glimpsed between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled in a corner of my heart. I held my breath, afraid to exhale for fear it would slip out, never to be found again.”
When a bomb explodes in a mall in East Africa, its aftershocks send two strangers on a collision course that neither one sees coming.
Jack Warden, a divorced coffee farmer in Tanzania, loses his only daughter. An ocean away, in the English countryside, Rodel Emerson loses her only sibling.
Two ordinary people, bound by a tragic afternoon, set out to achieve the extraordinary, as they make three stops to rescue three children across the vast plains of the Serengeti—children who are worth more dead than alive.
But even if they beat the odds, another challenge looms at the end of the line. Can they survive yet another loss—this time of a love that’s bound to slip through their fingers, like the mists that dissipate in the light of the sun?
“Sometimes you come across a rainbow story—one that spans your heart. You might not be able to grasp it or hold on to it, but you can never be sorry for the color and magic it brought.”
A blend of romance and women’s fiction, Mists of The Serengeti is inspired by true events and contains emotional triggers, including the death of a child. Not recommended for sensitive readers. Standalone, contemporary fiction.
Ahhh, reading a book written by Leylah Attar is so refreshing. The words flow flawlessly, taking you to places you can only dream about. Reading the words written on the pages of this book is like drinking a bottle of fine wine while drifting on your yacht in the middle of the ocean. Pure enjoyment at its best!
A very well thought out, planned and executed book that takes you on a journey where Rodel (Ro) meets Jack after they have both suffered from losing a loved one in a horrible event. The perfectly orchestrated story will lead you through sad times, funny laugh out loud times, horrible times but most of all, it leads you on a story that tells an even bigger one…if you just sit back and read…
To be honest, this is Leylah Attar’s best work. It’s a must read, sit back and enjoy the ride kind of book. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would!!
