When Elizabeth learns the devastating truth about her mother, locked away for defying Apartheid, she flees South Africa and begins a new life in Botswana, at Motabeng, the village of the rain-wind. But Elizabeth is tormented by two men, Dan and Sello, who represent for her a private vision of hell into which she sinks deeper and deeper.
This extraordinary novel interweaves one woman's terrifying experience of insanity with the madness and cruelty of life in a divided society. 'A Question Of Power' is the unforgettable study of an individual - and a race - whose identity has been annihilated, and their resulting struggle to endure.
