Ghost Moth

by Michèle Forbes - £7.99  Orion Publishing Co (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780226248 | ISBN 10: 1780226241

Michèle Forbes was named in the Observer as one of the debut novelists predicted to make a splash in 2014. Includes reading group notes. Ghost Moth will transport you to two hot summers, 20 years apart.

Northern Ireland has become a tinderbox but tragedy also lurks closer to home. As Katherine and George struggle to save their marriage and silence the ghosts of the past, their family and city stand on the brink of collapse...
