My book of the month: April

My favourite stories are those that have a strong sense of place, either real or imagined. That's why I found Home Fires engrossing; well, that and the believable characters.

The story is set in the Victorian town of Myrtle, where a catastrophic bushfire destroyed not only the buildings and the landscape but also the lives of the residents. Through a combination of chapters of before, after and during the fire, the story reveals the tragedies in Myrtle.

  1. Will have to get this one. Have seen it in the library and have been dithering about it. Finished all the Elly griffiths books and loved them.

    1. Let me know what you think of it. Glad you enjoyed the Elly Griffiths series!
