Once in Africa, I kissed a king…
“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.
Jen and Roxie’s Review
ALL THE STARS IN THE UNIVERSE!!!
Sometimes in our darkest hours, a light seems to find us when we need it the most. Whether it’s a picture brilliantly portraying love, a movie that lifts or spirits, or in this case, a novel so beautifully, so profound, it takes your breath away. The words give you hope that sometimes in the midst of sorrow, love and light win.
“…no matter how dark it is, you hold out for the light.”
Leylah Attar is a master storyteller whose words and prose are so poetic and magical, you’re not just reading the story, you’re living it.
“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.”
In The Mists of the Serengeti, you’re in Africa with Rodel and Jack—two people who have suffered from losing a loved one. Two people so completely opposite, but share one goal—to rescue three children whose lives are in danger.
Their journey is far from easy, but they are determined to complete their mission.
Along the way, their attraction grows, filling our hearts with sorrow, happiness, laughter and love.
“And just like that, in an old red barn at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, I found the elusive magic I had glimpsed only between the pages of great love stories. It fluttered around me like a newborn butterfly and settled in the corner of my heart. I held my breath, afraid to exhale, for fear it would slip our, never to be found again.”
We knew from the prologue that we were reading something exceptional and incredible, and it never wavered throughout the story.
The way Leylah takes us not only on an emotional but visual journey too is extraordinary.
We are there—we felt the African sun caressing our skin, we heard the zebras running across the Serengeti, we smelled the coffee mixed with dirt, we were at the feet of the Kilimanjaro looking on, taking it all in.
This book will make your heart soar. You’ll savor every word, every breathtaking moment of this epic love story.
“We all want magic, Rodel. We want to wake up rich. Or healthy. Or beautiful. We want to make the person we love stay with us, live with us, die with us. We want that house, that job, that promotion. And so we create the myths, we live them, and we believe them. Until something better comes along, something that suits us better.”
Leylah created a story that opened our hearts and our minds, that captured our souls and left us in wonderment. She has a gift. A gift that we are so honored she shares it with her readers.
“Sometimes we need to be jarred out of our own reality. We base so much of ourselves on other people’s perceptions of us. We live for the compliments, the approval, the applause. But what we really need is a grand, spine-chilling encounter with ourselves to believe we’re freaking magical. And that’s the best kind of believing, because no one can unsay it or take it away from you.”
