Publisher's Summary

Ghost Moth will transport you to two hot summers, 20 years apart.

Northern Ireland, 1949. Katherine must choose between George Bedford - solid, reliable, devoted George - and Tom McKinley, who makes her feel alive. The reverberations of that summer - of the passions that were spilled, the lies that were told and the bargains that were made - still clamour to be heard in 1969. 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...

Surprising, mesmerising and astonishingly written, Ghost Moth will show you the extraordinary in the ordinary.

Critic Reviews

"An impressive debut by a writer who is not afraid to address the so-called ordinary lives of real human beings. We shall be hearing a great deal more from Michèle Forbes" (John Banville)
"Time after I'd finished reading the final, sad, wonderful page" (Roddy Doyle)
"Deeply - sometimes erotically - charged. The writing soaks up the world, and thrills to the beauty of it. Children, bees, milk, the sea, all are wonderfully rendered and alive on the page. Katherine Bedford - so ordinary and so passionate - is a heroine to treasure." (Anne Enright)
