The story is set in the remote town of Broome, the desert, and the Kimberley coast - Australia's last frontier and a land of ancient beauty. Lily Barton, now 53, is beautiful, adventurous, and looking for a life change. Sami, her daughter, is driving alone through the outback to finally, reluctantly confront her family roots.
Together they are swept into a world where legends, myths and reality converge. They find that everyone they meet has a story to tell, from Farouz, the son of an Afghan camel driver, to Bobby, the Chinese-Aboriginal man who is tangled up in the murder of a German tourist - and who is the mysterious artist hiding in the desert? All have a secret and a story to share as each finds their place under the Kimberley Sun.

"Narrator Kate Hood does the unexpected in making an extraordinary story even more compelling. Every character...is splendid and distinct.â¿¿ (AudioFile Magazine)
Another great story from Di Morrissey.. Well told, easily identifiable characters, easy to lose yourself in the scenery.
For the most part the reading was excellent but the voice of Lily was very off putting.
she sounded English & upper class in this book, where in the first of the series she was a straight forward Aussie. I became very annoyed with her voice as it didnt fit the character at all!
Kimberley Sun ambles along without ever making an impact. Its vanilla sex and politics make it unlikely to disturb readers' afternoons, let alone their sensibilities. In other words, it is perfect popular fiction
"A nice easy listen"
This was a nice easy listen, enough twists and turns to keep you intrigued and plenty of culture and diversity as well
A nice sequel to the first book about Broome and the pearling industry
"Settle Down and Enjoy"
Right up with the top ten.
It is well written, has a good story line and was easy to listen to.
Where the daughter eventually 'gets it' about her mother's relations.
The bagpipe player
She has become my favourite author.
