How can you imagine the future when your story traps you in the past?
Harare, 2000. Gabrielle is a newly-qualified lawyer fighting for justice for a young girl.
Ben is an urbane and charismatic junior diplomat, attached to Harare with the American embassy.
With high-level pressure on Gabrielle to drop her case, and Robert Mugabe's youth wing terrorising his political opponents as he tightens his grip on power, they begin a tentative love affair.
But when they fall victim to a shocking attack, their lives splinter across continents and their stories diverge, forcing Gabrielle on a painful journey towards self-realisation.
Irene Sabatini, winner of the 2010 Orange Award for New Writers, navigates Zimbabwe's unfolding political crises, showing how the dehumanising effects of state-sponsored violence can shape and remake a life.
