Unfolding in 1991 South Africa, at the moment of Nelson Mandela's release, this novel explores the underground world of activists, spies, and saboteurs in the liberation movement-a world seldom revealed to outsiders. It also journeys back in time to find the forgotten history of coloured' people, whose mixed-race heritage is embedded in four centuries of wrenching South African history. The effect is a bold and revisionary work-a moving exploration of the meaning of history, memory and truth.'
