Oh man what a stunning, beautiful story.
Two people lost a loved one tragically on one day in the same Mall and so two people who are slightly lost and majorly lost but where one girl teaches one man how to live and dream and be again.
Ro is the stable kind of girl, she knows routine, and lives in her books wants a home which she just succeeds in getting and is a lovely school teacher. Her sister though is the fly by the wall kind of girl, the traveler and so on one summers day Ro looses her fun loving and outgoing sister. That prologue gah it broke me.... (this is in the blurb and not a spoiler) in the same day Jack lost his daughter and so by tragedy they need each other for one expedition...
Ok that's all I'm saying, this book is RAW AND REAL. It's about living, and learning and meeting ourselves when they go to help others. It's about the true life in Tanzania and understanding what goes on in the back streets. But it's about LIFE, living, loving and breathing again. And then it's about falling in love with you feel you don't deserve it.
I'd say though above all it's about family, friendships, sunshine, and EPICALLY FALLING IN LOVE again. Falling in love with each other but falling for Africa and what it gives you.
Then there's Leylah's writing. I started to highlight so many quotes it just gets better and better with each word and each paragraph but then it just became one big ole quote the whole book has sentiments, quotes, sayings EVERYTHING. I just highly recommend this book for all. Take your time and enjoy the Serengeti..
