'Look after your sister, Tinashe.'

When Hazvinei was born, Tinashe knew at once that there was something different about her. Growing up in a rural Rhodesia still haunted by memories of the recent guerilla wars, Tinashe knows he must take extra care of his sister. But Hazvinei is a wild spirit and soon the village starts to whisper - dark talk of curses and spirits. Tinashe is prepared to follow his sister anywhere - but how far can he go to keep her safe when the forces threatening her are so much darker and more sinister than he suspected?

Review:

"Eames conveys a strong sense of political turmoil enflamed by sinister witch doctors, brutal guerilla factions and superstitious misogyny…compelling." (Alfred Hickling Guardian)

"An extraordinarily drawn tale." ( Book Trust)

"Eames is a lovely writer" (Lesley McDowell Independent on Sunday)

"One of the most beautifully written, sad, magical yet clear-eyed novels I've read by any author for many years" ( Wales Arts Review)

"The book blends folklore and superstition perfectly with accessible language, relatable characters, believable dialogue and a fast-paced, well-structured plot...yet another powerful piece of writing." ( For Book's Sake)

Book Description:
