Description of this Book

In The White Masai , Corinne Hofmann told the incredible adventure of how she fell in love with and married Lketinga, a Masai warrior, and lived a riveting life with him in Kenya. Now, in Back From Africa , the third and last instalment of her incredible saga, Corinne describes her return to Switzerland and the difficulties that faced her there, detailing how she built a new life for herself and her daughter and overcame all obstacles with the same courage and optimism with which she faced the demands of her life in the Kenyan outback. With her previous two books Hofmann has proved herself to be an acute observer and an effective storyteller, and her astonishing and compelling tale speaks for itself.
