Jenny Morrison is bravely trying to move on with her life. Her husband missing amidst the turmoil of WWII, she takes refuge with Ray King, a slightly sinister, stuttering boy who disappeared from Woody Creek as a teenager but has now reappeared. In return for regular 'wifely duties', Ray offers Jenny and her three children sanctuary at his house in Melbourne. For a time, she is happy. But then Jenny's father - the philandering impresario Archie Foote - storms back into her world and chaos reigns again. Archie recognises Jenny's brilliance and offers her a second chance - a way to escape the domestic drudgery and finally fulfil her dream. But when you have three children, one missing husband and another with a dark secret, dreams have a habit of turning into nightmares...
What made the experience of listening to Moth to the Flame the most enjoyable?
The saga of Jenny Morrison continuous, I love the humanness of Jenny, the way she coped in crises, How she loved her children and through a very tough time.
What about Deidre Rubenstein’s performance did you like?
Loved her performance.
I read the first two books of this trilogy in hard copy and was thrilled to be able to download the third. What a brilliant story. Having been brought up in Box Hill I enjoyed the references to this and nearby suburbs. The use of coloquial Australian language made it more familiar.
What a wonderful stpry weaver is Joy Dittman. she had captured the Australian wsu of life in the early 1900s and woven an intricate story line that keeps you engrossed and wanting to listen continuously. And the narrative is excellent.
