“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.

LOUISA’S 5+ BLUSHES AND LIFE AFFIRMING REVIEW
Leylah Attar has put her heart and soul into this fictional story – but unfortunately – many of its themes are real. This book broke me on the first few pages – took me from happiness to sadness within the first few minutes. I was unsure how I would recover. The recovery was slow (but it needed to be), the sadness turns to deeper pain, physical pain and heart-ache that blossoms into one of the most unbelievable and epic stories of love, rebirth, renewal, salvation and love that I have ever read.
Ms. Attar’s writing is more poetic, beautiful and exquisite than I have ever read. I felt as though I was in the book, the description of Africa beautiful and horrific at times. My heart broke and my pulse was racing but I couldn’t stop reading til the very last page. The epilogue was the final stitch in the mending of my heart.
Just read this book and enjoy the adventure, from the sadness to the beauty in which you will be given while reading and long after you put the book down
