So Corinne Hofmann posted this on Facebook not too long ago, and I wanted to share it with all of my followers!
If you haven’t read her books, Hofmann has written four books: The White Masai, Back from Africa, Reunion in Barsaloi, and now Africa my Passion.
The first book is about how she went to Mombasa, Kenya, fell in love with a Samburu, and decided to move to Barsaloi to marry him and live there forever. As you might have guessed from the following books that doesn’t go too well. But it’s one of my favorite books and I actually cried at the end. It’s beautifully written!
The second book is about Corinne’s life back in Switzerland, her daughter, readjusting, and all that it involves.
In he third book Corinne goes back to Barsaloi and meets her family for the first time in 15 years.
I haven’t read the last book because I just found out today that it had been translated, but as far as I know it has three parts: Corinne on a trip in Namibia, Nairobi and the slums surrounding it, and finally Corinne’s daughter meeting her father for the first time since Corinne left Kenya when the daughter was a very young child.
So get reading, you! These are some of my favorite books and when I read them I feel like I’m part of the story. Of course, I may be biased from being in a relationship with a Kenyan man myself, but… Oh well. Oh and I’m not getting anything for doing this, I just like the books and I want others to like them too.
