Fourteen years after fleeing Kenya with her baby daughter, Corinne returned in the summer of 2004 to meet Lketinga and his family again in their village, Barsaloi. Nervous as she was, and uncertain as to how he would react on seeing her again, she found to her relief that she was welcomed unreservedly by all those who remembered her - by Lketinga, who still thought of her as his 'wife number one', by his brother, James, now a schoolteacher and especially by Lketinga's mother, who had looked after Corinne with such care all those years before. Corinne Hofmann revisits an area of a country which she cares about passionately, describing in her immensely readable style the changes she saw after her time away, and once again bringing to life the atmosphere and characters in the Masai village.… (more)

This was definitely the weaker book of the three. I think I enjoyed the second book; Back from Africa the best. It's the one where she actually grows up and takes action in making her life better.
However, I am surprised by her parenting "skills." It seems she truly believes in "it takes a village" to raise a child, because of the amount of time her child spends with childminders and that she allowed her child to run around at such a young age. I don't know if that's her or a European thing. ( )
