She is shipwrecked, crosses the vast Savannah desert, lives in the forest with natives and has to compete in a man’s world. Her ambition for power and wealth is fed by the discovery of a source of fabulous diamonds in a hidden cavern of the “Place of All life” Mountain. From this she builds up one of the biggest mining industries in the country. Her taste for adventure is satisfied only by reckless rides on her white stallion and her desire to conquer every man around her. But her two sons will be her downfall. One born out of love, the other from hate. Through them she will know anguish and fear. Shasa is quiet, obedient and loving. Manfred has never know his mother, and hates his half brother and the world because of it. When the brothers meet Centaine’s luck turns. Gradually events go again her as a large-scale plan to rob her of her diamonds goes into operation. She can only watch helplessly as her fortunate and loves disappear in a bottomless abyss of hate.
