Secrets in the Fire by Henning Mankell

Book Description

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 Sofia's legs. In her long journey toward recovery, Sofia must still deal with growing up. Along the way, she discovers friends, and foes, in places she'd never expected. Through it all, Sofia draws on a strength she never knew she had, a fire of her own that's been a secret all along. In beautifully spare, unsentimental language, Henning Mankell's stunning novel puts a very human face on the suffering in Africa.

Quicksand by Henning Mankell Quicksand, Paperback (February 2017)

In January 2014 the author was informed that he had cancer. This book is not about death, but about what it means to be human. It is about love and jealousy, courage and fear, about what it is like to live with a fatal illness. It is also about why the cave painters 40,000 years ago chose the very darkest places for their fascinating pictures.
