Camugu, recently returned to Johannesburg and disillusioned by the new democracy moves to the remote Eastern Cape. There in the nineteenth century a teenage prophetess commanded the Xhosa people to kill their cattle and burn their crops, promising that the spirits of their ancestors would rise and drive the English into the ocean. The failed prophecy split the people in two, with devastating consequences. One hundred fifty years later, the two groups' descendants are at odds over plans to build a casino and tourist resort, and Camugu is soon drawn into their heritage and the future--and into a bizarre love triangle as well.
