She travels to Nairobi, joined by her half-Kenyan daughter, Napirai, for the first time, to discover Napirai’s roots and so that her daughter might finally meet her father and half-siblings in Barsaloi. Africa, My Passion is a poignant, touching and exciting story about one woman’s love affair with a unique man, which led to a lifelong obsession with Africa.
