|Plot Summary of Dark Places|
|"After a violent attack on a small African village, the few survivors travel across country hoping to escape from their persecutors and find freedom. Mahlindi is a young girl who has lost her fingers to a machette attack, others have lost loved ones and hope. In deperation, some of the refugees seek love, others seek escape into death. Danger is never far behind the small party, the landscape is often hostile and potential enemies are all around. There is no explanation for this violence, but it is an ongoing reality in many countries none the less. "Dark Places" is a brutal, lyrical novel that is both uplifitng and deeply troubling."
