Publisher's Summary

Di writes about the Australia she knows, she loves, she’s explored. Rain Music is inspired by her adventures in far north Queensland - its characters, its forgotten history, its modern dilemmas.

A brother and sister, Ned and Bella Chisolm, are struggling with a family tragedy that has set them on opposite paths. After Ned takes off to pursue his musical dreams in far north Queensland, he disappears.

When Bella goes in search of her brother, she ends up in remote Cooktown, and both their lives are dramatically changed in the isolated, little-known far north of Australia. Rain Music tells the one story through two sets of eyes.

Not as good as her other books

I loved this book, excellent read or listen. I love Di Morrissey's research always thorough. Good story.

What a struggle

This audiobook made women sound so pathetic and breathy & made me wonder whether the man narrating had actually had any conversations with strong, serious, normal women in his life! I really struggled with the storyline, or lack of, but wonder if I may have enjoyed it more reading it myself in hard copy. I used to like Di Morrissey books for an easy read but I couldn't even finish the last one & have to say, this one, filled with cliches and stereotypes & a real lack of character development or exploration, had me scoffing at it and wishing for the end to hurry up and get here. Don't waste your time.

A little slow

I really like Di Morriseys books and was looking forward to another of her stories, however I found it quite slow and a bit boring. Wasn't til about 3/4 into the story I found it interesting. Disappointed

Rain Music

Not a bad book, I struggled a lot with the narrator, most of the time his voices for the female characters sounded either a bit Dame Edna-ish or pathetic femme fatale and the men sounded sleezy! Because of that I fast forwarded through it a bit.
Better to read this one I think. Story was good a bit long drawn out at times.
