The most acclaimed Scottish novel of all time, Sunset Song is a powerful portrait of a land and people in turmoil, seen through the life and struggles of its heroine, Chris Guthrie.
In the years up to and beyond the First World War, Chris' resilience, like the land itself, endures despite everything and is portrayed with a lyrical intensity that echoes through the years and still resonates today.

Gibbon's poetic language spoken in McCallum's appropriately thick accent combine to require closer attention, but oh, so worth it! Gibbon tells an honestly realistic tale in words that make it beautiful.
What a treat to hear this. Perhaps my first north east story. I look forward to seeing the show now. Thank you.
"Good book for learning about the land and its authors"
I am going to Scotland and wanted to get in the spirit. This was a good one to give me a sense of the people, land and history. The narrator made the story come alive, with her authentic accent being both a pro and con. I enjoyed her accent and the colloquialisms of the Scottish but at the same time found it difficult to understand, especially when she was speaking quickly. I may have to get the written book to study and decipher some of the language. Would recommend!
"A very fine book and surely a Scottish classic"
Beautifully and evocatively read and very moving. Such a lyrical description of place and a culture no more.
"Wonderfully read in a convincing accent."
Absolutely loved listening to Eileen McCullum convincing accent and dialect; brings the story alive! Marvellous!
Fantastic narration. I've read Sunset Song many times and will never tire of it. Eileen McCallum's voice is perfect and added so much to an already firm favourite of mine. I'm looking forward to listening again.
A lovely Scottish poetic language novel. The narration enhances the story. Strong characters in an interesting plot. Throughly recommend!
