A supernatural thriller, blending African myth, friendship, romance and self-discovery from prize-winning author, Efua Traore. Sixteen-year-old adopted Tara has questions, about who she is, where she belongs, why she dreams… When her nightmares darken, fears swarm like a flock of ravens and she traces her visions to the ancient Olumo Rock in Nigeria.

It is a sacred place, full of magic, myth, and where whispers of the past linger. Enrolling in a boarding school at the foot of Olumo, Tara begins a journey to seek the truth of her roots and the spirits that pursue her, sisters of one cord and one heart.
