"Philida" by André Brink.

Philida is the truly unforgettable story of a female slave, 
and her fierce determination to survive and to be free.
Philida, a fiercely independent woman will settle for nothing and for no one. 
Unwilling to accept the future that lies ahead of her, she continues to test the limits 
and lodges a complaint against her owner’s family. 
Then she sets off on a journey - from the southernmost reaches of the Cape, 
across a great wilderness, to the far north of the country - 
in order to reclaim her soul.

For practical reasons attendance is limited to 14
