Fiona Lowe has done it again. In her newest book, Home Fires, Lowe delves into another small Australian country town, Myrtle.

As the town of Myrtle struggles to rebuild after a devastating bushfire, the townspeople continue to live the heartbreak of all they have lost. Whether they lost loved ones or their homes, this community is stuck in the horror of that day, and the aftermath that they have to live with.

A group of women come together determined to rebuild their community and make it great again. But each of them is living with a burden, one of which will shock the small community of Myrtle.

As you delve further into the lives of these women and the town they love, you will feel more and more a part of this community.
