Beschreibung

This is the sequel to Di Morrissey's international best-seller, Tears of the Moon. 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.

Beschreibung von Audible

The endearing tale of a mother and daughter in the rugged climes of Western Australia, Kimberley Sun beckons listeners on a vibrant and heartwarming jaunt through the country’s history. Actress Kate Hood (Prisoner, Blue Heelers) deftly depicts Di Morrissey’s colorful cast of characters, betraying the rich tapestry of cultures and experiences that make up the Australian character of past and present. Through the eyes of Lily Barton and daughter Sami, listeners meet Bobby, an Aboriginal man who finds himself on the wrong end of a murder investigation, and Farouz, the son of a camel driver from Afghanistan. The versatile Hood provides each character with a unique voice while nevertheless imparting the essentially Australian experience that binds together these modern-day pioneers of the Kimberley coast.

Hilfreichste

Entführung in eine andere Welt

Hab das Buch auf Englisch gehört, und der australische Akzent der Sprecherin macht es sehr authentisch. Man wird durch die Geschichte, die Charakter, die Beschreibung der Landschaft in eine andere Welt entführt und für mich war es wie ein "Kurz"urlaub in Australien, wobei die 14 Stunden natürlich eine schöne lange Reise ist. Mir hat es wirklich gut gefallen, und ich werde sicher noch weitere Bücher von Di Morrissey hören oder lesen. Viel Spaß!!
