Summary

Kes is facing the unthinkable. As a bushfire threatens their life and their homes and wipes out their cattle, her family will have to abandon the mountain property of her great grandparents. Kes is torn by her search for her own identity and that of her Aboriginal grandmother. If her gentle father was not a stolen child but simply unwanted, will she keep this knowledge to herself? And then there is an incredible discovery that only makes her more confused - or is it her salvation?
