Emma, a young and self-contained professor of history, leaves Cambridge for a post in an exclusive university in the USA, intent on finding a long-overlooked 17th century journal. Bound within its pages are secrets that threaten to bring Emma into conflict with the present; but can she discover the truth – and will she believe it?

"An impressive debut for a promising new writer. One to watch." – Taylor Holden, author of Waking Ned and The Sense of Paper

"I began Mortal Fire one winter evening, with a cup of hot chocolate near at hand. Within a few chapters the chocolate was ignored and had gone cold. C. F. Dunn’s vivid prose holds the reader’s attention right to the riveting conclusion." – Mel Starr, author of The Unquiet Bones
