About the Book

There have been droughts before, but not like this. Heartbreaking and powerful, FACING THE FLAME is a story of the triumph of courage and community, and a love for the land so deep that not even bushfire can erode it.

Gibber's Creek, 1978 As grass dries and the hot wind howls, Gibber's Creek will burn. But if you love your country, you will fight for it. Lu Borgina has been recently blinded, but she battles flames to save a racehorse, even though her dreams of being Australia's first professional female jockey have been destroyed. Scarlett O'Hara risks her hard-won life at medical school, and the new love of Alex Romanov, to save a child. And Flinty McAlpine draws on the local knowledge of tens of thousand of years to protect her valley. And Jed Kelly must escape not just bushfire, but the man who plots to kill her with its power.
