OMG the tears! I started this book not knowing what to expect. It was both sad, full of joy and bittersweet. It hurts so much but feels so good. I don’t think anything will ever compare to this crazy, beautiful adventure I have just been on.

I am a city girl, 100%, but after this I want so much to visit Tanzania and see it’s magic for myself. This story truly takes you on an unforgettable journey, in the Serengeti. Through villages and farms, the different problems people face, the simple way of living, it will all call out to you.

There is a truth to the story which shows that not everything is a fairy tale. Sometimes life is cruel as hell. As much as it hurt I think that’s what makes this story even more amazing. I can’t imagine anyone picking this up and not FEELING so many different emotions. I am a complete mess right now while writing this.

Just to allow ourselves a taste of whatever was beating hard and fast between us. It would be like sucking on chilli pepper candy balls. It would buzz and sting when it as gone, but it would be so, so good.

Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack. Oh how I love you. You remind me that simplicity is the greatest give and happiness isn’t about owning lots of things. You can create your own magical world and I am so grateful for that. I am also a little bit in love with you! I wish you were real. You do rival ALL the fictional heroes. Mr Darcy who? I want a Jack Warden please!

As we drove into the shimmering blue of the hazy horizon, I caught a glimpse of his soul. So many pieces of him had been fed to the lions. And as dark and bitter as it had turned him, he was a gladiator for standing where I would have surely fallen.

Rodel is such a down to earth girl she is hard not to admire. She goes on an adventure for her sister not really wanting to at first but it gives her the most beautiful experience of her whole life. She found love, hope and herself there. We think we want our life to be a certain way but really it is completely something else that will make us happy. Something we wouldn’t have expected.

I kissed him then, suddenly and without warning, standing on my tiptoes to reach him.
“What was that for?” His mouth quirked higher.

I wanted to know what your lips taste like after a smile. I shook my head and grinned like I was holding a big secret.

I loved her and Jack so so much. They had the most beautiful moments together, full of magic, poetry and unforgettable feelings and moments. They left pieces of themselves within the different places they visited on their adventure. GAH. I knew that whenever I thought of love, it would have a face, a name, a voice. And I would hear its heart beating from inside a tent in the wilds of Africa. I am still stuck there, in that tent!

The writing is simply incredible. I don’t think my words could ever do justice to the feelings they create for the reader. It is not just the story, but the way the author narrated it. It is simply beautiful. Every word, every sentence. It is lyrical and enchanting. I don’t think I will ever read something which will compare.
