In the fourteenth century of the Common Era, in the South of what we now call India, nine-year-old Pampa Kampana, orphaned by war, starts hearing the voice of a goddess. Inspired, and imbued with powerful magic, she vows to ensure that no more women suffer her beloved mother’s unconscionable fate. Aided by miracles and a gift for prophecy, she creates a mighty city; her whispered words galvanize its people to grow and change. Her poetry maps the rise and fall of its empire. And the prophetess herself–beloved, feared, timeless–watches as the world changes across the centuries and her body, frozen in the beauty of youth for decades upon decades, fades along with her city’s glory. Half a millennium later, her writing is discovered, deep in the ancient earth.
