Historical Fiction • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Australian actor and narrator David Tredinnick takes listeners on a tour of nineteenth-century Australian bush country in this historical novel centered on Charles Dickens's youngest son, Edward. In 1868, at the tender age of 15, Edward is taken out of boarding school in England and sent to a huge sheep ranch in Queensland to make something of himself. Tredinnick has a fine time giving voice to the many characters Edward meets: the kindhearted rancher, the wannabe novelist, the cheating trader, and the mysterious woman who worships Charles Dickens and collects everything about him. This big, sprawling tale is delivered by a big, sprawling voice. B.P. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
