Publisher's Summary

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.

    "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.

    "Moving, and heart reaching"

    This was a real gripping story of beauty and horror. A place we're children are sacrificed in brutal ways. In the mist of loss a love is found. It's an unexpected journey of love for family. I cried and laughed. You must listen to this story.

    "WOW, just WOW"

    This is the book that you search for don't want it to end. Romance, suspense, tragedy, action, incredible location for the story, and maybe one of best epilogues I have ever heard, and add in great narration. Pay attention in the early chapters and the story will all come together and make sense. Why can't all audiobooks be this good?

    "Just Simply Amazing!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anyone that wants to get swept away in a story needs to listen to this book! The narration was fantastic, the story beautifully written.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    An absolutely beautiful story of loss, love and restoration. Leylah Attar also does an amazing job at describing the scenery of the story. I felt like I've visited the Serengeti along with Jack and Rodel. And that epilogue!! Gahh...it left me a weeping mess!!
