Publisher's Summary

This sweeping tale confirms Joy Dettman's place as one of our most gifted storytellers.

When Jenny Morrison fled Woody Creek for a new life in Melbourne she left behind a dysfunctional family, a town of small-minded gossips, and, most tragically, a newborn baby. Mustering all her strength, she resolved to put her past behind her, reclaim her identity, and pursue her dream of becoming a famous singer....

Yet just months later she is back - wiser and with an expensive new wardrobe - but with a second child growing in her belly. Cruelly labeled the ‘town slut’, she finds refuge in Gertrude, her kind-hearted, dependable granny and Woody Creek's indomitable midwife.

Jenny thrives and, daring once again to dream, leaves Woody Creek for a second time and moves to Sydney, where at last it seems that the beautiful young songstress may find happiness... But can the past ever truly be buried? And will Jenny Morrison ever fulfill her destiny?

    Story
    "Worth listening to not a good as book 1"
    What did you like best about Thorn on the Rose? What did you like least?

    I still like the story Joy Dettman is a really good writer, however I wanted a bit of laughter not the endless ho hum drama and Jenny to actually make a decision.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Dettman paints a good picture of the times especially in country Australia


    What does Deidre Rubenstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    If I was reading the book I would probably skipped pages, I like Deidre Rubinstein as the narrator she makes the book come alive


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, however a TV mini series would work so much better
