Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The runaway international bestseller is now an American must-read for lovers of adventure, travel writing, and romance. Corinne Hofmann tells how she falls in love with an African warrior while on holiday in Kenya. After overcoming severe obstacles, she moves into a tiny hut with him and his mother, and spends four years in his Kenyan village. Slowly but surely, the dream starts to crumble, and she hatches a plan to return home with her daughter, a baby born of the seemingly indestructible love between a white European woman and a Masai. Compulsively readable, The White Masai is at once a hopelessly romantic love story, a gripping adventure yarn, and a fine piece of meticulously observed social anthropology.

About the Author

Corinne Hofmann has written three books based on her life story, including two sequels to The White Masai—Back from Africa, which is a bestseller in Germany, and Reunion in Barsaloi, which was released in 2005. She lives with her teenage daughter in Switzerland.

When I started reading this, I soon put aside everything else to finish it. It is a gripping story, not easy to put down! At its heart it is a tale of domestic violence, but the settings are strange and wonderful. Corinne Hofmann does a fine job of balancing the narrative with her own musings, memories, and inner turmoil. I found myself really cheering for her, and frightened for her as the story progressed. I am currently reading one of the two follow-up books she wrote to this one.
