Read so well! This story grips you from the beginning. Whilst fictional it makes you wonder what could be going on around you, silently. Great listen!

I enjoy the writings of Thomas Keneally, and this story is performed brilliantly. However, I feel it gives suicide a romance that it does not deserve. It does not then visit the emptiness and loss left to loved ones, or the distress that accompanies it. We who are living have a gift, which I feel has been diminished here.

This story told through the eyes of a child with an autism spectrum disorder highlighted both the love and determination of ordinary people to live life even through struggles and hardship. It didn't skip over failures or hurts and was narrated brilliantly by Nikos Andronicos!

started well but very weak second half. author ran out of ideas and appeared deluded that it was only fiction.

Love this!

I love getting lost in the writings of Kate Morton, the this does not disappoint! Read so well by Caroline Lee who captures the personality of each character.
