    Historian, Zara Black, is far from home, trying to come to terms with her family's past. The unearthing begins with her grandfather who concealed his race to escape the harsh realities of the diamond mines before ultimately changing his name to Isaiah Black. Subtly and astutely, C.A. Davids weaves a narrative that shifts between past and present and contemporary South African and American politics, to examine betrayal and displacement.
