This was an absolutely stunning story by Leylah Attar. I felt every tear every heartbreak and every emotion that these characters felt and had to endure. I was right there with them through their journey of love and healing. The writing was breathtaking and so raw and real. At times I felt that I was right there with Jack and Rodel breathing in the farm and the open plains of Africia. Their love for each other ran deep and pure with moments that touched my heart and soul. Again an amazing love story!
There are times in this story where you feel as if you have literally stepped into the midst of it.
This story is powerful, wonderful, colourful, heart breaking, funny, magical, emotional, adventurous, delightful, intense. There are times when you rail against injustice, other times when you feel and taste the depths of grief, and then love continues to sweep you forward.
The characters are great and easy to connect with. The way grief is dealt with is very real and honest.
The epilogue is surprising and leaves you muttering .... 'if only'.
Great read. Probably a 4.8 star rating ... but what the heck.
I thought to myself, it's not really my bag but I'll give it a go.
You know those times when your mind is completely blown so much so, that you look back and wonder how you ever could have considered not reading this book. This was one of those times.......
Tears formed throughout the whole book, happy tears, sad tears and heartbreaking tears.
The writing was spectacular, the descriptions so vivid I could close my eyes and picture the scene. The epilogue was the pinnacle and tied up a book filled with so much emotion really beautifully. Please give it a go, this kind of storybook love should be shared and embraced.

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 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.
This was my first read by this author, but it won’t be my last for sure. 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. Definitely a must read!
The characters have a real depth of emotion to them. I sympathised with them, held my breath with them, cried and laughed with them; I ran the whole gambit of emotions along with these characters. I felt their loss, their love, their hurt and saw what they saw through their eyes and these beautifully written words.
Rodel leads a quiet life unlike the rest of her family, until events happen which push her in a direction she never though she would take. I loved Rodel and could see myself in her; I loved her sense of humour and her desire to do her best for others, despite her fear of the unknown. She meets Jack Warden, larger than life Jack, who is locked away inside his grief. What is not to love about this man, he is haunted by tragedy, fierce in his belief in justice and loving, so very loving. He is wonderful and the way his character develops as the story progresses and he is drawn into helping Rodel is magical. As for Goma and Bahati, they were great characters, so funny at times; they made me laugh and smile.
I didn’t want this story to end…ever. It is one of those stories which will stay with you forever. The prose was phenomenal…"Yes. This. I know this. I feel this. I’ve heard its footsteps echo down the hallways of my soul. We turned to each other with kisses that were soft and greedy, reverent and selfish—each one like a pressed daisy to be hidden between the pages of our story.” …sublime!
If you only read one book this year, make it this one; you will not regret it.
Fancy a book that's a little different from the beaten track well this could be the book for you. Mists of the Serengeti is set in the beautiful backdrop of Africa in the mists of grief love finds a way.
This book was something really different for me in many ways, I'm not a big fan of a slow burn romance yet I loved that Jack and Rodel had a real slow burn of a romance it suited them. I loved the that there wasn't just a love story being told but also it was a story of Africa, their beliefs and misconceptions weaved into Jack and Rodel's love story. The epilogue is probably one of the best I've read, just spectacular how it all interweaves leaving me absolutely breathless.
Rodel and Jacks’ story is a beautifully woven, poetic masterpiece that not only transpires a deep resonance within the reader, but intertwines a serious, more disturbing subject giving our two lead characters heroic status. Their journey delivers a dramatic impact making one hell of an intense, addictive read.
From the English countryside to the vast African Serengeti, Ro’s life not only changed with the devastating death of her sister, but in the wake of her loss, a new journey opens itself up. Unlike the old 'down to earth, safe and scarcely spontaneous' Ro, she spreads her wings and takes it, however she's not quite prepared for her life, as she once knew it, to change forever.
Jack Warden is a force to be reckoned with, a looming hunk of a man who is devastated at the loss of his Daughter in a premeditated attack – that day broke him. Afraid to move on, or let anyone else in, Jack has become a shadow of his former self. His love of life and his coffee farm snuffed out the day the shopping centre fell, but this new stranger looking for answers is an enigma, and a distraction he wasn’t quite ready for.
Survival becomes key in a race against time, as two grieving people bound together to save the innocent. Through the mist arises strength, and a timeless 'once in a lifetime' love story to rival the best.
Mists of the Serengeti is one not to miss.
Jack loses his daughter and Rodel loses her sister in a terrorist attack on a shopping mall in Tanzania. Rodel who is quite a homebody travels to Africa to visit where her sister died and becomes embroiled in finishing a dangerous job her sister had started when she meets Jack.
Such a different story and so well written you can actually imagine yourself there in the foothills of Kilimanjaro. This was a beautiful love story, an adventure, a trip round Tanzania, and in the end it is very true that we are all connected. I can't tell you anymore you really need to read and experience this book for yourself. I cannot recommend it highly enough, totally brilliant.
