WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Set amid the colonial scramble for southern Africa in 1895, The Convert tells the tale of Jekesai, a young girl who escapes a forced marriage arrangement with the help of a stalwart black African catechist, Chilford Chiredzi. Caught between her loyalty to her family's traditional culture and her indebtedness to a new Christian god, she becomes Chilford's protégé, who renames her Ester. When an anti-colonial uprising erupts she is forced to choose sides in the conflict--and decide where her heart truly belongs.
