A Country plunged in ignorance. Appearance of a prophetess. Insinuations of a disobedient angel.
Quasi-philosophical in approach, this novel tracks, quite unconventionally, the path of a prophetess - from her enlightenment to ascension. In between she gathers followers, performs miracles, leads one of the longest march in history and of course, battles the insinuations of the vilest of beings - Satan.
Building up on the lives of many characters this novel, for a patient reader, fuses multiple stories together to form a larger picture. In a fragmented style, with an ever changing tone, through an allegorical plot, this novel attempts to politically comment, religiously preach and Chapawood-ishly entertain. And in the end it ends up giving a whole new meaning to itself that is not to be told but discovered and felt.
