Spanning the momentous 1940s and 50s and dramatising rural Australia's complex and mysterious heart, Moth to the Flame confirms Joy Dettman's place as one of our most gifted - and underrated - storytellers.

Moth to the Flame picks up this epic story and we see Jenny bravely moving on with her life. 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…
