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 elevenyear- old daughter stopped speaking and eating, and her younger sister struggled to cope. As they desperately searched for answers, they 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. Our House is on Fire is the story of 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.
