Publisher's Summary

There have been fires before, but not like this.

In 1978, as the hot wind howls and the grass dries, all who live at Gibber's Creek know their land can burn. But when you love your land, you fight for it.

For Jed Kelly, an even more menacing danger looms: a man from her past determined to destroy her. Finding herself alone, trapped, and desperate to save her unborn child, Jed's only choice is to flee - into the flames.

Heartbreaking and powerful, Facing the Flame celebrates the triumph of courage and community and a love for the land so deep that not even bushfire can erode it.

Praise:

"The perfect read for anyone who loves immersing themselves in Australian fiction. Gripping, emotional, and moving, Facing the Flame is a great book to curl up with on a warm spring night." (New Idea)

I want to live in Gibbers Creek

After the 2020 bush fires and fires in the US, this is very timely. I love these characters!
