Return to Kenya

2008-10-02 08:05

Reunion in Barsaloi is a sequel to Corinne Hofmann's bestseller, White Masai, in which she relates her adventures of 14 years ago. As a young Swiss-German tourist travelling with her Italian boyfriend to Kenya, she met and fell in love with a Masai warrior. She subsequently married Lketinga, the warrior, and had his child. After spending four years in rural Barsaloi, she fled the country with her 18-month-old daughter. This book tells the story of Hofmann's return to Kenya to re-establish ties with her Kenyan family. She decides to leave her teenage daughter behind in Switzerland as she isn't sure she'd be allowed to take her back to Europe once her Kenyan ex-husband sees her.

All in all, Hofmann's easy and engaging style makes for an enjoyable and entertaining read, although reading White Masai is essential for full appreciation of this novel. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
