A young Dutch clerk comes to the Cape of Good Hope as a lay missionary in 1800. Based on historical figures drawn from the Cape Town Church Archives, this novel is a sweeping narrative of vanity and humility, of the sacred and the profane, of how Europe's rampant strides across newly colonised Africa led to the abyss from whicha continent still struggles, today, to retreat.
