Fire is a powerful and dramatic story from the bestselling novelist Deborah Challinor

Allie and her friends Louise, Irene and Daisy all work at Dunbar & Jones, one of the country’s most glamorous and sophisticated department stores. Allie’s a salesgirl in the dress department, Louise works in lingerie, Irene is a typist in accounts and Daisy makes hats in the workroom out the back. In the week before Christmas 1953, as the country prepares for a Royal Visit by young Queen Elizabeth and the store is crammed with wealthy shoppers, smoke is detected drifting from the basement lift shaft. What happens next will sear the heart of the city and tear families apart. It will also test friendship, love and loyalty and open wounds that never heal.

'Challinor is a good storyteller ... seamlessly joining fact and fiction and creating a convincing, atmospheric yarn.'
Bookseller + Publisher

'Fire sits well in the bestseller charts alongside the most recent novels Union Belle and Kitty. It’s an easy, though fast-paced, and engaging read.’
Taranaki Daily News

'Challinor is exceptionally capable of creating believable characters the reader can identify with, while all the time ensuring the historical integrity of the events being written abou ... A guaranteed captivating, can’t-put-down read and, in my opinion, the best way to learn history.'

'[Fire] is a delicious, easy-to-devour kind of book that, even with its large doses of heartache and despair that will have you reaching for the tissues, is a delightful read of love and despair, tragedy and triumph – the themes of which will resonate with you even after you have turned the last page.'
