AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A coming-of-age birthday party. The threat of an approaching bushfire. A deeply held family secret.

'It’s the 7th of February 2009 – forever known in Australia’s history as ‘Black Saturday.’ It’s also Tom Robinson’s 18th Birthday. But tensions start to rise between Tom and his older brother Matthew, along with the temperature outside, and before the ice-cream cake has time to melt a deeply held family secret is revealed.'
