A Collector of Affections: Tales from a Woman's Heart is a heartfelt travelogue of Leah's life with Miguel and their love affair that continues when they return to the States and as he struggles with his commitment to another woman.
When diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, Miguel faces his sobering truths. Leah also confronts her reality that transcends the magic of travel and chance meetings.

Understanding the population impact and the dynamics of infection diseases in the most affected region is critical to efforts to reduce the morbidity and mortality of such infections, and for decisions on where to use limited resources in the fight against infections.
This book aims to contribute to these efforts by offering a demographic and epidemiological perspective on emerging and reemerging infections in sub-Saharan Africa.
