“Three Million Acres of Flame is a multi-faceted, intense read. While at first glance it looks like a â€œdisaster book,â€ it really tells the story of a â€œnormalâ€ family living through extraordinary times. Sherrard doesnâ€™t make her characters infallable, instead she breathes life into them as she shows Skyeâ€™s jealous streak, Tavishâ€™s tenderness, and Stewartâ€™s propensity for teasing as we follow a year of their lives. Using strong female and male characters to drive the story, the reader ends up learning about a compelling time in history as well as becoming invested in what happens next for each of the characters. It felt like I had walked into the 1800s and visited with friends.”
