A Wonderful Use for Fire by Hayden Gabriel
Greg`s affinity with the sea provides a refuge from his marriage; Sophie`s passion is the night sky as she strives to further understand the stars. Brought together by chance, they begin a love affair that reaches from the sun-bleached sands of the Caribbean and Hawaii; across the Canadian wilderness; to the wind-swept coast of south-west Wales. Compelled by a sense of certainty about one another, Sophie and Greg snatch moments of intimacy from amid the demands of their families and the responsibilities of their scientific disciplines - until life-changing events force them to test the strength of their bond. In charting the difficult choices Greg and Sophie make, A Wonderful Use for Fire explores notions of belonging and sustainability. It is at once a poignant and an uplifting story of love, loss and discovery.
