The place is white-ruled Rhodesia of the seventies (now Zimbabwe), the exile the African in his own land. Young men and women flee from their villages to join the freedom fighters in the forest. These stories, set during the years of the armed struggle, tell of the other struggle, that of survival of those who stayed behind. Told essentially from the women's point of view in lyrical but unaffected prose, the stories recreate the dark atmosphere of those months full of fear and hope.
