This is a jewel of a book - I will be thinking about it weeks from now. Beautifully written, and beautifully read. It will bear re-reading soon. First reading to grasp the story, second reading to savour the writing, and listen for key lines, and consider the story behind the story.

Brilliant.

What a fabulous, fantastic and imaginative book - for a book as long as this, the story never slows down, and is not over-written. And Simon Prebble’s presentation is perfection itself. Highly recommended!

A good read!

Beautifully narrated by Cassandra Campbell (Where the Crawdads Sing), this is a story of love, grief and a mystery that serves as a road to a “new normal” way of living. The story is well written, and well considered. Worth a listen!

Great read...

Lovely development of the story line, and beautifully crafted descriptions of the use of light in paintings. The only issue is the incredibly poor Australian accent used by the reader - closer to South African if anything - it rankled all the way through. If you can put that aside, a great listen...

Wonderful evocation of an era of change, the heirarchy of small town society, and the psychology driving the need to be rich, to be considered someone.

Wonderfully interpretive reading of a sensitive and funny story - highly recommended. Shows great insight and understanding of an increasingly common problem.
