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 newly born 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.
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme where we share which books we’re eagerly awaiting to be released. This week I’m featuring MISTS OF THE SERENGETI by author Leylah Attar.
Leylah is a spectacular author, writing captivating and unique stories that engage the reader, both heart and mind. Everything I’ve read from her has been stunning, and I’m beyond excited for more words from her.
MISTS OF THE SERENGETI will be released on January 31, 2017. Which books are you looking forward to?? Comment on this post and I’ll choose a random friend to send a $5 Amazon GC so you can pick up something from your TBR!
This is one I’m really excited for right now! I’m also waiting for The sequel to Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare!
