about

The year is 1832 and the Cape is rife with rumours about the liberation of slaves. Philida is the mother of four children by Francois Brink, the son of her master.

     Francois has reneged on his promise to set her free and his father has ordered him to marry a white woman from a prominent family, selling Philida to owners in the harsh country in the north. Unwilling to accept this fate, Philida tests the limits of her freedom by setting off on a journey. She travels across the great wilderness to the far north of Cape Town -- determined to survive and be free.

     LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2012.
