Eliza Henry Jones has captured the terror, loss and aftermath that a small rural town suffers when a bushfire sweeps through. Annie and her six year old daughter survived the fire. Her grandmother, who insisted they leave, stayed and perished.
Annie is drawn back to the devastated town to help her mother and begins to work through her own trauma and the effect it has had on her daughter. Ache is a wonderful story of survival, resilience and the power of a close knit community.
