'Reminds me of some of the great works of Wilbur Smith.'' - Lillian Brummet, Reviewer A thousand years ago an almost legendary city existed in southern Africa, the hub of trade and with mystical stories abounding about its power and origins. But by the end of the 14th Century it was inexplicably deserted, and the rubble that is left is now known as the Zimbabwe Ruins. In the 1960s and 70s a war raged for possession of Rhodesia, now known as Zimbabwe. A country named for the ruins of a city no - one has the answers for; yet in our story the two are intertwined, tied in like a knot. Powerful women who shaped their worlds: Tcana, daughter of a cattleherd, yet fated to be wife of the King's son, and high priestess of a new religion that would tear apart that same kingdom; and Rebecca, a TV journalist hundreds of years later, face to face with the fury of a bush war which would challenge her faith and her heart, and in the final hour would see her facing her enemy in the very place that Tcana had held sacred. Powerful men whose own destinies were set on fire by the catalyst of their women. Two sons of one king, good and evil. Two warriers, Selous Scouts, white and black, fighting side by side against an insurgent malevolence. And, once again, two religions in a battle to the death.
