Summary
Easter, 1974: On a remote medical mission station in Tanzania, Dr Michael Carrington and his wife Sarah are savagely murdered. A white woman visiting the couple that night inexplicably survives the brutal attack, and a bloodstained fetish found with the bodies is adorned with locks of her long red hair. The Carringtons' last guest is Annah Mason. Once an idealistic missionary nurse, she is now an outsider. Europeans view her with suspicion. But the Africans know her as a gifted healer, a friend of witches and the great love of Mtemi, chief of the Waganga. They call her the Rain Queen. Nearly 20 years later, Kate Carrington has forgotten her African childhood and no longer yearns to know what really happened to her parents on that terrible night. But then she meets her new neighbour an eccentric old woman who cooks over a fire in the garden and shoots at snakes. Kate soon learns that she is not the only one with an African past the Rain Queen has crossed the world to tell her story and find peace. Two women, one terrible event, and a vast and beautiful country pulling them always back
