Always an outcast, born an albino into a family and township of dark-skinned people, Memory recalls from her childhood the day she was sold to a white man, Lloyd. Now, convicted of Lloyd's murder, she sits on death row in a maximum security prison in Zimbabwe. It is this book, which her lawyer encourages her to write, that keeps her sane and leads her to a truth that shifts the fabric of her remembered life. With an even voice and eloquent simplicity, Memory peels the layers of detail away to reveal a very startling truth!
