The Devil's Chimney

In Oudtshoorn, South Africa, Connie Lambrecht lives in the shadow of the vast Cango Caves. In the depths of one of the eerie passages they call the Devil's Chimney, a young colored servant girl once vanished. Connie is haunted by this mystery, and by the story of an upper-class Englishwoman, Miss Beatrice, whose quixotic attempt to raise ostriches at the turn of the century on a farm near this dusty provicial town led to terrible misfortune. In recounting the tales of these two women, Connie finally discovers the deepest secret of her own life and the truth about her ghost-filled past.
