Summary
When Cathleen Harrington leaves her home in Ireland in 1919 to travel to South Africa, she knows that she does not love the man she is to marry there. Isolated and estranged in a small town in the harsh Karoo desert, her only real companions are her diary, her housemaid and the housemaid's daughter, Ada. But one night, Cathleen comes home from a trip to find that Ada has disappeared, scorned by her own community. Cathleen must make a choice. Should she conform to society or search for the girl who has become closer to her than her own daughter?
