Ava attempts suicide and finds herself in a mental hospital. Her therapy with her psychiatrist, Dr Bloodwood, is documented throughout and these clinical findings are interspersed with Ava's recollections of the events which have led her to this terrible place in life. In hospital, Ava appears to discover much about herself and why she made the decisions which sent her to the brink of madness and homicidal dreams. Ava's first relationship with the elusive 'man in the moon' leaves the reader guessing. Is he real or a figment of Ava's vivid imaginings? The story of Ava, Wally and Raven, their daughter, is a familiar one in our society where people begin relationships for all of the wrong reasons and end up despising each other. The reader will be firstly puzzled, and then surprised, by the unusual twist of fate in the final chapter of the book.
