The Lion Tamer Who Lost : Louise Beech

A little bit about the book :

Be careful what you wish for ….

Long ago, Andrew made a childhood wish, and kept it in a silver box. When it finally comes true he wishes he hadn’t …..

Long ago, Ben made a promise and he had a dream: to travel to Africa to volunteer at a Lion reserve. When he finally makes it, it isn’t for the reasons he imagined….Ben and Andrew keep meeting in unexpected places and the intense relationship that develops seems to be guided by fate. Or is it? What if the very thing that draws them together is tainted by the past. Secrets that threaten everything? A dark consuming drama that shifts from Zimbabwe to England, and then back into the past. The lion Tamer Who Lost is also a devastatingly beautiful love story with a tragic heart.

Where do I even begin???? The lion Tamer Who Lost is an inspiring, heart wrenching raw tale filled with mixed emotions tale. Louise pulled out all the stops on this one, an incredible storyteller who captured your heart from the start. I found myself totally engrossed and found myself what it would be like to watch the sun rise while lions stretched and roamed about – picturesque and the way Lousie writes you can picture yourself there. I don’t want to give too much away but Louise manages to tell us the most beautiful love story that holds so many secrets and tragedy’s with such compassion I was reaching for the tissues as the tears filled my eyes. I felt my heart break into a million pieces. The tale of Andrew and Ben will stay with me for a long time to come.
