The little town of Edenville is special to Luke and his mother. With the help of big biker Tiny, they reckon they’ve at last found somewhere free from the trouble that has stalked them for far too long. But it’s fire season, the bush is ready to explode, and there’s smoke just over the hills. This little piece of paradise is in the path of a monster that could destroy everyone and everything.
Set around the horrific Victorian bushfires of 7 February 2009, John Heffernan’s award?winning novel captures not only the ferocity of the disaster, but the sheer courage and determination of those who faced and fought it. “Ordinary people doing extraordinary things spurred me to write this story.”
