Into the Fire

A year after her best friend died in a house fire, Lara can’t come to terms with the loss. Logic says there was no more she could have done to save Alice, but Lara can’t escape the feeling that she is somehow to blame for the tragedy.

She spends a weekend at the rebuilt house with Alice’s widower, Crow, and his three young children. Rummaging through the remains of their shared past, Lara reveals a friendship with Alice that was as troubled as it was intense. But beneath the surface is a darker, more unsettling secret waiting to be exposed.

Praised by Rosalie Ham as a ‘perceptive, provoking story of friendship and intimacy’, by Jacinta Halloran as a ‘heartbreaking and richly rewarding read’, and by Julienne van Loon as a ‘timely and necessary book’, Orchard’s debut novel, Into the Fire is a must-read.
