Author talks about experiences during and after Black Saturday fires

The Black Saturday fires of 2009 changes Sue Gunningham’s life forever. Her partner Barry Johnstone died in the blazing fire which consumed their home near Kinglake, Victoria. She has written a memoir, All the Days After, about her experiences, her journey through grief and the healing process which include restoring their cottage Waldene as a tribute to Barry. Sue calls the new Waldene her own ‘Taj Mahal’.
