A MADNESS OF SUNSHINE

Narrator Saskia Maarleveld shines in this compelling, multilayered listen. The land and the sea of the New Zealand coast become an integral part of the story’s beautiful descriptions, authentic narration, and well-developed characters. Maarleveld’s pacing and nuance perfectly complement the building tension and explosive ending.
