Would you consider the audio edition of Sun in the Morning to be better than the print version?
I think both are lovely, but hearing the story adds a new layer of lovely, particularly with such a fine narration.
What about Maddy Everington’s performance did you like?
I LOVED her performance!
Any additional comments?
The story is quite different from Cadell's other books, but the writing and characterization is familiar and the narration is delightful.

A biography of the author by her talented daughter Janet Reynolds (Lady Grantly Publishing 2005) contains many references to Sun in the Morning. It is located in the back of the special limited paperback edition of another wonderful Elizabeth Cadell book - Death and Miss Dane.
I first read Sun in the Morning (written in 1952) and her second India based novel, A Lion in the Way, over thirty years ago.
Listening to the incredibly talented Maddy Everington (great grand
daughter of the author) lead me through the daily life in India of a young girl in British-India in the early 1900s has been a riveting and most enjoyable experience.
Maddy Everington, as narrator had me enthralled. I listened to the story in one day. I really enjoyed this story based on Elizabeth Cadell’s early life. The excellent narration was the icing on the cake

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is a lovely, humorous, gentle story that is a semi-autobiographical story of Cadell's own childhood in the India of Empire.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I loved all three of the girls who were best friends.
What does Maddy Everington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Maddy did an absolutely amazing job. I am particular about books I listen to, and gave another Cadell with a different narrator a bad review. I think her over-the-top characters are hard to reproduce, but in this case, Maddy really brought the different accents to life. Not one was overdone from French Maurice to the little Indian boys.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed several times, but it's sorrows were of the gentler sort, so no tears and I cry easily. But it was very touching.
Any additional comments?
This is one of my favourite Cadell novels, and this audio version is the perfect reader for the text.
