In Zimbabwe, in 1977, in the midst of the guerrilla war raging against the white minority regime, a young woman escapes her war-ravaged village to go to the city, Harare. But the city has its own perils, and takes away considerably more than it offers. A moving, uncompromising novel, written in Vera?s graceful poetic style, about the horrors of war and oppression in the modern world and their effects on the individual soul.
