A bushfire threatens the small rural community of Melrose, and a reporter is sent to cover the crisis as it unfolds. But Clarrie Brown isn’t just any unrelated journalist. In fact, as he enters the town environs he is caught up in a vision of the past, the years he spent as a boy, growing up in this town.
One Remarkable Year brings the Australian country town to life in the 1960’s; a time when the modern era of social revolution emerged to take the place of the traditions and ways of generations past.
Here is the story about a real town, with real characters and real spirit. Based on many local yarns, One Remarkable Year will give you a genuine feel of the character and life in Melrose over past years. Some of the stories recounted are based on fact; the rest could very likely have happened.
Melrose is not just a place.
