After Kilimanjaro: A Novel by Gayle Woodson has a strong appeal for fans of women’s fiction and adventure. Dr. Sarah Whitaker knows she needs a break. She’s been burned out from work. So, when David, the man who has been central in her life for nearly six years, tells her that he wants to climb Kilimanjaro, she agrees that they can use the grant to work on a malaria vaccine and spend a whole year in Africa. But David backs out, leaving Sarah alone on the plan. She continues on the adventure to Africa where she falls in love with Tanzania. Follow her as she faces new challenges, gets into life-and-death situations, and build new friendships. Can she muster the courage to leave this place with its kind people behind and will her life ever be the same again?

This is an interesting story with wonderful characters. I had the feeling that the novel is well-researched, with beautiful locales and an Africa that readers will want to discover. The setting is impeccable and descriptions from the Kilimanjaro International Airport to the details in the environment and rare finds like Tanzanite — the precious stone rarer than diamonds — are colorful and filled with imagery. Character development is wonderful and I enjoyed how characters like Sam help bring out the different layers of the personality of the protagonist. Gayle Woodson writes in prose that is fluid and captivating and fills the writing with exciting dialogues, right from the moment the reader encounters the protagonist in the aircraft to the very last page. After Kilimanjaro: A Novel has a lot of drama and emotionally charged scenes that make for a great read.”
