Beschreibung von Audible

Veteran performer Melissa Eccleston lends her warm and empathetic voice to this moving coming-of-age story from Australian novelist Sonya Hartnett. With a gentle yet sincere delivery, Eccleston brings to life the memories of young Harper Flute as she recounts her family's struggles through the Great Depression. Thursday's Child is an unsentimental look at one family - and in particular, Harper's youngest brother, the ever-elusive Tin - and how they are able to persevere through poverty and heartbreak. This complex coming-of-age audiobook is sure to be a treat for listeners young and old.


The creature held a great bundle of something tied up in a rag. For a moment we stared, not recognizing him, but who else could it have been, who else but wandering Tin. We saw his naked limbs, his discoloured hair, his hooking razor-sharp nails. He raised lashy eyes to us and we saw a face on its way to another world.Through the long years of the Great Depression, Harper Flute watches with a child's clear eyes her family's struggle to survive in a hot and impoverished landscape. As life on the surface grows harsher, her brother Tin escapes ever deeper into a subterranean world of darkness and troubling secrets, until his memory becomes a myth barely whispered around the countryside.

"The haunting eloquence and dreamlike weaving of the mythic and the mundane invite comparisons to the works of David Almond." (Publishers Weekly)
"Hauntingly read by Melissa Eccleston...Thursday's Child is a poignant, emotionally wrenching, highly recommended narrative." (Midwest Book Review)
