    deep affinity with

    Hello.

    Have I used "affinity" correctly in this sentence?

    She felt a deep affinity with rivers because her father and grandfather were fishermen.

    If affinity doesn't work, what word can I use to suggest she has a special passion for rivers?

    Perhaps:

    Rivers were in her blood.
