Narrator Humphrey Bower transports listeners to Western Australia in the 1940s. There, Rob Coram is living a seemingly idyllic and carefree childhood, playing outdoors in beautiful settings with friends and family, looking at the world with magic and wonder, all the while surrounded by the embrace of his tight-knit family. Bower's Australian accent is captivating in its cadence. He exquisitely presents the thoughts, feelings, and conversations of an innocent boy as a war that will bring about unforeseen changes in his own family, and in Australia itself, looms in the distance. Bower vividly evokes the author's descriptions of the landscapes and cityscapes of his youth. S.E.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
