Towering above them is the story of Ummi al-Qassim, a princess of Bolewa, and the feud that attended her love-first for a nobleman, then for a poet-a feud that bequeaths her with madness and death. All four are bracketed by the modern city of Jos in Central Nigeria, where political supremacy and perverse parental love become motives for an ethno-religious eruption calculated to destroy the Nigeria State.
