I wonder if I was the only person that felt slightly uncomfortable that Corinne managed to make so much money from selling details about her husband and his family, and become very rich with it, while they were living in poverty?
I know she did send regular money to help them out but it felt a bit ironic that she managed to make such a good living out of it - other than this, a good read, got through it in a couple of days.

3.0 out of 5 stars follow on from White Masai 3 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
Having read the White Masai, I was interested to discover what happened next! Again, this book was an easy read, but to my mind served only as a link between The White Masai and Return to Barsaloi, as it repeated a lot of what had been included in The White Masai. It was a readable account of how Corrine came to pen the story of her life with Lketinga and her success as an author. I found the account of the trip to Mount Kilamanjiro interesting, but detached from the main story.

Lots of repetition and going over old ground in this book. Not as interesting as I felt it would be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book 2 of Masai Trilogy 7 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Couldn't wait to read this second book of Corrine's journey but it was not as good as the first and last one. Probably because it was all to do with Corrine being back in Switzerland, it must be the Kenyan side of the stories that have enthralled me. But it is a must to read to fit Corrine's story all together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another, can't put down book! 4 May 2014
By Belinda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was curious to know if Corinnes return to Switzerland would be as interesting a read as her adventures in Africa. I wasn't disappointed and admired greatly her determination and perseverance in pulling herself back up from arriving with nothing to becoming the successful woman she is today. An amazing story and I can't wait to now read about her return to Barsoloi !
