    Unforgettable - My favorite so far of 2017!

    There is nothing that this author writes that I don't love and Mists of the Serengeti was no different. I had the privilege of early reading this book and it completely blew me away. Not only because many of the events within this book were inspired by true life events but because every word, every scene, and every character embedded itself within my heart and remained there when life took me away from the book or even after finishing the story, I couldn't stop thinking about it. Leylah Attar truly brought the Serengeti to life. The imagery, the characters, the daily life of these people - I could visualize it all in my mind. Ms. Attar is a poetic genius with her words and this book is complete and utter perfection. Just another of the million reasons why I love this author and she is one of my favorite authors of all time. What truly inspires me about Ms. Attar is her ability to write outside of the box. I have read every one of her works so far from 53 Letters to My Lover, From His Lips, and The Paper Swan - each book I loved for its own brilliance and uniqueness. In a book world where there is so much of the same story told over and over again, this author is able to give us something extraordinary and fresh each and every time. I LOVE that when it comes to books and authors and Leylah Attar is a true gem and force to be reckoned with. So what's this book about? Jack Warden and Rodel Emerson are brought into each other's lives because of a common bond - both losing someone they love in a tragic bomb explosion in a mall in East Africa. Where Jack becomes a shell of himself because of the loss of his daughter and prevents himself from truly living, Rodel Emerson travels to Africa to pack her sister's things and learns what her sister has been doing in the Serengeti - finding and helping albino children get to an orphanage where they can find safety from the people who hunt them down because of who they are and what they are worth. I want to pause here and say how much this affected me...how thinking how different our worlds are where something like this happens on a daily basis. I was an emotional basket case worrying about the lives of these children and how nothing has changed over the course of time to protect them from these people who are hunting them down. Rodel has her work cut out for her when she tries to persuade Jack to carry on the mission work of her sister and that there is something more important than grieving their terrible loss but to save people that truly need them now. Yes the people who we grieve for will always will remain with us and forever change us but to be able to do something for children who are living now, who need us now- this was something that I hoped that Jack would be able to open his heart up to doing. And here begins of the journey of Rodel and Jack through the Serengeti, both frightening and heroic where I admit that I was gripping my kindle in fear of what was to come. But through it all, there was a light that followed these two characters as I could see and feel the bond that was growing between them despite the danger and sadness - that somehow fate truly played a part in getting them to meet and help protect these children, that soulmates really do exist. So yes, there is a love story weaved into this story combined with the challenge of surviving. And how it all came together was just magical <3 While there were characters I hated in this story, there were some that I loved completely who stole my heart - Scholastica, Bahati, the Grandmother.... Mists of Serengeti is emotional, captivating, unique, and utterly beautiful. It is a journey of the heart and soul that will leave you completely breathless.
