Three days after arriving in Zimbabwe, Natalie discovers an abandoned newborn baby on a hill near her uncle’s farm.
115 years earlier, the hill was home to the Mazowe village where Chief Tafara governed at a time of great unrest. Faced with taxation, abductions and loss of their land at the hands of the white settlers, Tafara joined forces with the neighbouring villages in what becomes the first of many uprisings.
The novel interweaves the contemporary story of Natalie, who has gone to stay with her aunt and uncle in Zimbabwe to escape personal problems at home and the history of the country as told by Moses an elderly native man and his younger family members. 288p
