A bushfire in Dell's childhood still haunts her. She dreams up new starts, but her spilling stories cannot over-write the past. Evvie dances into Dell's life. She has run as far as she can from her family, but her country keeps calling her back. Evvie's daughter, Luce, is most at home in the company of creatures. All she wants is her collection of bugs and a guinea pig for Christmas. Dell meets Patrick in the pub, but he's going back to Scotland. Her life finally rupturing, Dell follows. She leaves a hole that Evvie and Luce struggle to fill. They must find each other again, without Dell. And Dell must discover how love works half a world away. 'Ash Rain' explores the corners and crevices where love can grow in unexpected ways.
