    Description

    From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Leylah Attar, comes a compelling, emotionally resonant new novel, set against the lush backdrop of the Serengeti.

    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."

    Mists of the Serengeti is inspired by true events and contains emotional triggers, including the death of a child.

    ✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

    This book was very different from my normal taste. I enjoyed the setting of Tanzania, Africa and I also was very interested in the humanitarian side of this story, the political violence that started this story and the unlikely love story all in one. These two are brought together because of violence and grief and they really helped each other move forward. I think my favorite thing was the ending, I love that we get a flashback from before this book started and got closure for some questions I still had. The one thing I didn't really like was the lack of descriptions. I couldn't tell you what the characters looked like nor do I have much of a vision in my head of of the setting or places they were. I also couldn't wrap my head around Jack and how he was born in Tanzania but sounded and acted completely american?? It didn't effect the story line but I just like to imagine the people and places when I listen to a book.

    The narration was GREAT!! Megan Tusing was amazing, she really brought Rodel to life! Zachary Webber was great as always, he always brings so much to his characters!

    Mists of the Serengeti

    I really didn’t know what to expect with this book I just knew that I loved Zachary Webber's narration and thought why not give it a shot.

    I am blown away with both narrators; this story is heartbreaking, sweet, intriguing and again heartbreaking. I was sucked into the story, who wouldn’t be? It starts right away. It took me some time to get used to Megan Tusings’ narration but once I did I was hooked. I even went back and a few parts just so that I didn’t feel like I was missing anything.

    This is a story of living after loss. But neither one knows it until too late it is bittersweet. It is also magical; the setting of this story draws you as much as the story does. I loved Jack’s grandmother.

    What these two characters do for each other is something we all hope for, it’s the thread of life, hope, the forgiveness we all want. They understood each other in different ways but also in the same way. Understanding is sometimes all one can ask for, and with that can you heal.

    I am still in awe of this book the ending broke me and gave me peace it’s weird to say that but it did. I will be looking for more books by this author and the new to me narrator Megan Tusing.

    4.2 Stars - Very enjoyable and a very CR

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!

    Any additional comments?

    Mists of the Serengeti is mostly a low in (relationship-) angst and overall a nice pretty easygoing love story to just simply enjoy and keep reading. Of course there are some sadness, sad family losses and sudden death to start with, but it solves in its own ways. We end with dried tears, huge promising love and new chances. — Best of all; it is not a overly long, not a overly complicated or a overly steamy smexy romance book. But I got enough nice steam and heat to get the feel of a yummy romance.

    Mists of the Serengeti let me with the feeling of kindhearted sweetness with two main characters and a couple of second characters to sincerely like and feel for. It also gave me some hours when I was hooked in a intriguing plot (“albino children mystery”) told with high speed suspense at times.

    My summary:
    • All in all a yummy good holiday read when you like me enjoy to spend time with nice heartwarming love stories.
    • This 12 hours audiobook is very well narrated by Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing.
    • Recommended for old fashion romantic girls and ladies ... actually all kind of fans of contemporary romances.

    Absolutely the best book of 2017 so far!

    The story was beautifully written and perfectly narrated. I loved every minute, from the first sentence to the ironic end. Will definitely be reading more from this author.

    Brilliant, Outstanding.

    I'm at a loss for words. All I can say is brilliant, outstanding. A wonderful story of survival. I was hooked from the first page. Not only by the characters but also by the story line. Hard to listen to at some points yet so wonderful in others. Truly enjoyed it more than words can express. 5 stars by far.

    This story got me hooked back on Audible

    I was hesitant to return since I don’t have a lot of free time. Even my drive to work is only 15-20 min, so was unsure how I would get through 12 hrs. I had a lot of credits built up so I decided to start buying and this is the first one I began listening to.

    From the beginning it captivated you. I was afraid not only did I not have time, I also have 1k things running through my mind. This captured my attention which is hard to do. Before I knew it, 30 min a day for the first week got me further than I thought. I then found myself listening while taking baths. Before I knew it I was done.

    This audio made me realize even with my hectic schedule, time flew and it became my daily escape. Great story and nicely narrated. I knew Zachary Webber was amazing, but first time listening to Megan Tusing and I am a big fan!

    HEARTBREAKING ENDING 😭

    Listening to this story really got to me. Story shows how death affects people differently. Losing a child is the worst and trying to heal from it is a long heartbreaking process. I loved the way Jack and for got together. Hated how they left each other but glad how they ended up. Hated how the children were sold and killed and used. Hope something like this really doesn’t happen in real life. The epilogue was so 😞 sad. Only wished when Mo left message she would have mentioned Lily’s name. I also wished there bodies would have been found. 5 ⭐️ to the author I really loved this book listened to this book straight through, could not put it down. Well worth the 12-13 hours it took to listen.

    Unforgettable adventure for all your senses

    Wow…I’m rendered speechless… How am I supposed to sit down and write a review about perfection? What am I supposed to say when I can’t find words strong enough to describe all the emotions this book gave me? I wish I was Leylah Attar, so I could write a review as magical as this book was, but I’m not…

    That’s why I would just say that this was one of the most beautiful books I’ve read in the last years. It was like reading a modern version of a fairy tale and it was simply breath-taking. The words were so perfectly written there were sentences and paragraphs in it that I read and re-reread several times just to devour each feeling and experience the beauty behind it over and over. The sceneries and culture described in the story completely took my breath away and I wanted to crawl inside the pages and live there.

    The love story was so sweet, pure and heartwarming that I had to stop on so many places to simply savor the magic behind it. Jack was dreamy and even though he had his rough edges, he was so loving and caring I fall in love with him from the start. Rodel was a bit shy and uncertain in the beginning, but she was such a strong, free spirit. I really liked that they were so open with each other from the beginning. They didn’t hide their demons and tragic pasts, because they might have met under the most unbelievable circumstances, but they instantly found comfort in each other. And their love story was magical as well.

    There were so many places in this book that I had to stop and just think about what was said. Question my beliefs and perception of life and the simple things we take for granted. We never know what we win when we lose and vice versa because everything is truly connected. Sometimes we just don’t know how.

    It had all the feels I want from a book and even more. There was drama, but it was just the right amount and not too excessive. There were some funny parts that made me laugh as well. There was love so pure and sweet my heart felt it was going to explode from those feelings coming out of the pages. There was action and intense moments. And there was this whole magical story that was wrapped up so nicely at the end, I would remember it for a long time to come. And this audio is just another great way to experience this story. great narration and transferring all the emotions. Definitely, a must read/listen!

    Lag es an der Sprecherin?

    Wenn Zach Webber ein Buch liest bin ich immer Feuer und Flamme. Er war ein wichtiger Grund dafür, dass ich dieses Buch gekauft habe. Zach Webber kann aus Wasser Wein machen. Das vorliegende Buch hätte leider auch dringend eine gute Leserin gebraucht. Diese liest ca 80 % des Buches und ist einer positiven Bewertung nicht sehr abträgich.
    Die Geschichte ist ziemlich flach, die Romanze entwickelt sich unglaubwürdig schnell, dann folgt der echt schlimme Teil, der so schmalzig und klischeebeladen und groscheromanartig ist, dass ich nur noch die Augen rollen musste und ständig vorgespult habe. ÜBEL.
    Es ist wichtig Thema der Albinokinder aufzugreifen, jedoch hatte diese ernste Thema in der Geschichte ÜÜÜÜberhaupt keine Relevanz. Es war eher ein kleines, bedeutungsloses Randthema, welches die Geschichte benötigte, um die Romanze auch in den Nationalparks spielen lassen zu können. Ein weiterer Grund dafür, dass ich mir dieses Buch ausgesucht habe ist, dass ich selber im Februar in Tanzania war und hoffte nochmals in Erinnerung zu schwelgen. Das gelang Frau Attar auch ganz gut, sie scheint zu wissen wovon sie schreibt. (Die Einheimischen sagen übrigens "TanzAnia" mit der Betonung auf dem zweiten A).
    Irgendwie hab ich es dann doch durch das Buch geschafft. Die Geschichte endet übrigens so, wie sie begonnen hat: Mit Zach Webber als Sprecher und einem ordentlichen Paukenschlag! Dadurch wurden aus zwei drei Sterne.

    Breathtaking!

    A fantastic book with a heartbreaking epilogue that will allow you to leave the story without wondering about any of the figures remain. I loved every moment of it!
