Description: When Kristien Muller, expatriate Afrikaner living in London, hears that her grandmother is dying, she returns to South Africa to be with her. She finds that her grandmother was mortally injured in a terrorist attack on her isolated mansion. It is a time of irrevocable change in the country. Ouma (Grandmother) is determined to hand down her treasure of family history while she is still alive. As Kristien keeps vigil by the makeshift sickbed in the ruins of the mansion, Ouma bestows on her a legacy of stories filled with myth and reality, legend and brute fact, magic, treachery, heroism, and farce. Delving back to and beyond the years of pioneering settlement, Ouma's personal story mirrors and magnifies the course of history. Even as Kristien travels through the past with her grandmother, and helps her prepare to face death with dignity, she must also confront the new realities of a nation on the brink of monumental social and political upheaval.
