Overview

Danger fills the air in a North Carolina beach town as wildfires from the surrounding woodlands move closer. In the midst of the growing crisis, the lives of three strangers touch and entwine - a school administrator who also works as a volunteer fire fighter, a feisty high school "Azalea Princess" in the Azalea Festival, and a beautiful but unhappy jewelry-maker.


As the three become increasingly involved with each other, the fire overtakes the town - and forces each of them to confront the things they fear most.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the North Carolina coastal town of Festival, over an eight-month period in 1988, Bache ( Safe Passage ) sets the compelling stories of three citizens whose lives encompass racial and class conflicts, marriages of compromise and teenage angst. Cassie Ashby, forlorn and rebellious stepdaughter of the manipulative county commissioner, begins her freshman year of high school by defending her black bus driver falsely accused by a white boy of making sexual advances. Jordan Edge, the vice-principal of the high school, finds fulfillment only in fighting fires. Alona Wand searches for love and fulfillment while creating jewelry and fighting with her staid husband. At the town's annual springtime azalea festival, these smoldering, intertwining narratives will climax in a forest fire that threatens the town. Mostly fast-paced, the novel occasionally falters in Bache's device of disclosing the same events from three points of view. (Mar.)
