Born of the Sun

Illustrated by Mark Edwards

Paula and her father Karel have talked for years about trying to find the lost Inca city of Atahualpa.

When Paula's parents suddenly take her out of school and set off for South America, it seems that all her dreams are about to come true.

But soon she finds herself having to answer painful questions. Her father behaves more and more strangely, and he seems obsessed by the idea that sinister enemies are threatening them. Paula starts to realize that loyalty and love for her father are not enough. She must discover for herself what the truth is and what sort of journey she is making.
