Secrets in the Fire by Henning Mankell

Based on the indomitable spirit of real-life landmine victim Sofia Alface.

It is the wise old woman of the village who teaches young Sofia about the secrets in the fire. Within the flames hide all things past and all things yet to be. But not even old Muazena can see the horrors the fire holds for Sofia and her family—not the murderous bandits who drive them from their home, and not the landmine that takes Sofias legs.

In her long journey toward recovery, Sofia must still deal with growing up. Along the way, she discovers friends, and foes, in places shed never expected. Through it all, Sofia draws on a strength she never knew she had, a fire of her own thats been a secret all along.

In beautifully spare, unsentimental language, Henning Mankells stunning novel puts a very human face on the suffering in Africa.
