God Save The Rain Queen

Christopher Hope sets his story in the South African Highveld, where the Rain Queen, Her Majesty Bamadodi VI, holds sway as the authorised rainmaker.

Her power though is chipped away by the modern attitudes sweeping the country, attitudes which bring an ambiguous promise of progress and the deadly threat of disease.

The bond of friendship she forges with a white South African middle-class mother protects them both for a time.
