With that information, Kann is summoned again to the territory of her formative years in what's now Zimbabwe. the ladies' privileged colonial early life, a rural lifetime of mansions and servants, is devastated by way of their father's untimely loss of life, their mother's madness, and the onset of civil conflict.

With honesty and compassion, Kann items jointly her sister's lifestyles, explores the heartbreak of loss and the fight to belong, and at last discovers a brand new, extra complex that means of domestic.
