Chapter 35 Summary

Nhamo still lives at Efifi, but she overhears the adults talking. The doctor she calls Mother says that one day soon they will need to send Nhamo to a city so she can go to school. Nhamo takes this personally, becoming angry with Dr. Masuku and ignoring her to spend time with Baba Joseph. Baba Joseph tells her about Satan, and in return Nhamo tells him a story about how it became the custom to sacrifice a cow when someone dies. Baba Joseph tells her these superstitious beliefs are all wrong.
