Publisher's Summary

In the sixth book in the legendary Poldark saga, Ross is faced with a new battlefield, one involving the women whose lives are intertwined in his own.

Cornwall, 1795-1799: Although Ross Poldark, now something of a war hero, seems secure in his hard-won prosperity, a new dilemma faces him in the sudden infatuation of a young naval officer with his wife, Demelza. All four women - the four swans - whose lives touch Ross' face crises in these years. For his wife, Demelza; his old love, Elizabeth; his friend's new wife, Caroline; and the unhappy Morwenna Chynoweth, these are times of stress and conflict.

Disappointing

I have tried several audiobook in the Poldark series and am still disappointed. I don't think the narrator has the range of different characters that would make the series come to life. Perhaps I am jaded from the BBC series and am expecting too much? Certainly one of the books must be a winner so I'll keep trying.

It's killing me.

I hang on every word and can't walk away for even a moment. What a well rounded historical fiction.

Four Swans Excellent

The book continue the saga of the Poldark and Warleggen families. I found the performance of Oliver Hembrough continued its excellence!!
I only wish the seventh volume of this series (The Angry Tide) would be available to Audible subscribers in the USA.

Poldark

Some time narrator would scream and I'd jump other than that was great story line.

Oliver J.Hembrough !!!

Oliver, brings this book to life! Of all my audio books this series performed my Oliver are my favorite done by this extremely talented man. The only book I can not listen to is Demelza, because I was so used to listening to Oliver.

Impressively narrated

The narrator Oliver J. Hembrough Really captures the essence of the Cornwall accents and performs the voices the men, and children equally well. I felt transported! Can’t wait for the next book!
