Summary
Pilgrim Jones' husband has just left her for another woman, stranding her in a small Swiss town where she is one day involved in a tragic accident. Overcome with guilt, she alights for Africa, befriending a series of locals, each with their own tragic past and each isolated in their own way. Mysteriously, one day a witch doctor's curse is carried into town, setting everyone in the remote Tanzanian outpost on edge. Pilgrim can't shake the feeling she's being followed
Summary
Fleeing the memories of her part in an accident that left three children dead in Switzerland, Pilgrim moves to Africa, where the appearance of a box filled with an albino's remains, a dark omen to the locals, leads her to try to get rid of it, despite the fact that she feels as if she's being followed
