Damon Galgut tells the story of an affluent white family who own a farm near Pretoria (South Africa) and then lose everything. The title refers to the promise the father made to the dying mother: Their Black maid Salome should become the owner of the house in which she and her family have lived. But for various reasons, the promise isn't kept for a very long time...the issue arises again and again over the years, causing arguments between the father and his children
