Published in 1991, Children of the Fire takes place in early October of 1871 during the devastating fire that destroyed most of Chicago, Illinois. An African-American child, Hallelujah, lives through the great Chicago fire with courage and resourcefulness.

Robinet portrays Hallelujah as an independent girl that desires adventure.

During the fire, Hallelujah meets not only wealthy and poor people, but people of many cultures and color, growing deeply from her experience.
