Susanne Bellamyabout this book: Firefighters are some of the most amazing and selfless real life heroes so when I was choosing my next hero from amongst the characters of Bindarra Creek, Kel Jones (and his team of firefighters) from the Fire and Rescue service was a natural choice.
Fire is used in mythology as a symbol of rebirth, and Bindarra Creek is undergoing just such a rebirth. When an arsonist begins burning up Captain Jones' town, the fight becomes personal. I love research and connected with a firefighter from the area in which this fictional town is located. Many pages of questions and answers were exchanged, and diagrams sent to help me understand how their trucks (called appliances) operated, plus hours of viewing different types of fires being brought under control, and the training to give fire fighters the skills needed.
It's fascinating and frightening and the stuff of true courage watching these men and women battling intense heat and smoke and falling debris.
Add in the local Cyprus Café and a healthy dose of wonderful Greek cooking by the heroine and her family and you have a recipe for lots of sparks.
But this story also explores some serious problems that confront our small rural communities:
"It highlighted some key issues that are very relevant in todays society but with a focus on the romance between the two main characters ..." 5 stars
