I’m a Kiwi, living in the States and ‘Fire in the Mountain’ immediately transported me back to skiing vacations on this same Mountain – ‘Ruapehu’. It should be obvious to any reader of this novel – that the author extensively researched various specialties regarding the study of Volcanic activity in New Zealand. It led us onto the slopes of this awe inspiring mountain and gave us insight into the dedication of those who spend their lives studying and appreciating its uniqueness and beauty. In this novel – we hold our breath during an avalanche and again for the hope of a past romance, re-kindled. Thank you also for bringing us insight into some historical events – actions of brave men – which are woven into the present day activities of some decidedly not so. An informative and thoroughly enjoyable novel delivered in such an engaging manner that it is hard to believe that it is the first for this author. Congratulations, Lily Ennis!!!
When can we expect to see the film?
PS. Just one complaint: – Fire in the Mountain has made me homesick!
