The Whole Bright Year is a soft meandering novel with so many lovely moments and a surprising end. Maria does an incredible job narrating the story and voicing the characters to really light your imagination. Highly recommend.

What a jewel of a story – emotionally poignant, great plot, drama and characters. Oswald has a knack for Aussie vernacular of the 70’s, and showing us every characters perspective. A wild ride.
Loved everything about this book. The finely crafted characters, the setting, the pace and the sheer magic of being held within the story.
I really enjoyed this book, different to what I was expecting which is always nice! The narrator could have used a few more voices, that always makes the book more interesting! But I still enjoyed it! welcome you listening the audiobook!
