Description

Motohuma the Firehead is the story of a white child growing up in a black country (Rhodesia/ Zimbabwe) ,as it goes through traumatic changes and a savage bush war. Three love stories across two generations are intertwined, but perhaps the greatest love story of all is the one the author tells about the country she’s lost.

Poppet, the heroine, knows there is a dark secret about her birth, but she never suspects the truth! She dreams of a house fire, and lives with unexplained scars on her body. Her real name is never used, and she does not look like anyone else in her family. Something happened to her long ago, in the years before her memory was formed, but nobody on the remote farm where she lives will tell her what it was. The same secret literally drives her father to drink, but she won’t share what he knows with her. Poppet’s mother is dead; killed in a terrorist attack on the farm, her brother is confused, and the farm workers are determined to mind their own business.

Poppet sets out to uncover the secret, beginning a journey that takes her to London, and brings her back to her African home where the truth and her worst fears lie. She has to deal with murder, rape, snakes, crocodiles and depression, and overcome them all before she finally arrives at the end of the secret. This is a romantic coming-of-age story, set in a wild and dangerous, but beautiful country. Poppet is a courageous, flame-haired heroine with a lot to learn, not least how to love the man who loves her so passionately.

‘Every Paradise has its Serpent, and every Eden its exiles.’

“Adrian swore, ‘I will never leave Africa.I was born here and I love Africa.’
The reply came: ‘It doesn’t matter how much you love Africa if Africa does not love you.”

I hope you enjoy it! It was written from my soul. Jennifer Munro

“This book will make you laugh and make you cry. If it doesn’t touch your heart, you haven’t got one.”

“This book was absolutely beautiful. It is an engaging book that is impossible to put down from start to finish. You really come to care about Poppet. This book was truly a great find! ”

“Quite simply put; I loved this book! It’s beautifully written, the descriptions bring the Africa I remember to life, the characters are people that feel familiar, people that you can connect with and it’s definitely a page turner.I would definitely recommend this book!”

“The best book I have read this year! The Characters are vivid and alive. The scenery is so real. If I hadn’t read the Authors web site, I would have thought the story was autobiographical – it is so life like.”
