A novel about a young woman torn between her life as a marketing executive at a Cape wine farm and her childhood in Soweto. Torn between the pain of the past and her hopes for the future, she embarks on a journey similar to the one that her dead father took when he heeded an ancestral calling to become a traditional healer.

“A bewitching addition to the current South African literary boom. Mohale Mashigo tells her story with charming lucidity, disarming characterisation, subversive wisdom and subtle humour.” Zakes Mda

Mohale Mashigo was born in Soweto in 1983. She is a storyteller and singer/songwriter known as Black Porcelain. "The Yearning" is her first novel.
