Description

The profoundly moving story of how love, courage and determination brought Greta Thunberg’s family back from the brink ‘Urgent, lucid, courageous … a must-read message of hope … It is a glimpse of a saner world’ David Mitchell, Guardian This is the story of a happy family whose life suddenly fell apart, never to be the same again. Of two devoted parents plunged into a waking nightmare as their eleven-year-old daughter Greta stopped speaking and eating, and her younger sister struggled to cope. They desperately searched for answers, and began to see how their children’s suffering reached far beyond medical diagnoses. This crisis was not theirs alone: they were burned-out people on a burned-out planet. And so they decided to act. Our House is on Fire shows how, amid forces that tried to silence them, one family found ways to strengthen, heal, and gain courage from the love they had for each other – and for the living world. It is a parable of hope and determination in an emergency that affects us all.
