A novel by

 
 
This is the story of what landmines do to ordinary people...

Based on a true story, Secrets in the Fire is a direct and unsentimental story about what happens when a little girl in Mozambique steps on a landmine. In that second when she strays from the path Sofia loses her sister and both her legs. What future is there for a girl from a poor African village in these circumstances? But Sofia is part of a tradition of courage, and the secrets of the fire will safeguard both her past and her future. As much a tale of individual bravery as a protest against war, and the evil of landmines. For twelve year olds and up, Secrets in the Fire is a rich and haunting tale of human resilience.
