Of course this is a great story, and incredibly moving many times, but what made this listen an amazing experience is the talent of Oliver J Hembrough. He nails every voice, every personality, every ACCENT with beautiful precision and fluidity. I am amazed at his talent and look forward to hearing more stories narrated by him.

Now I move on to the last in the series: Bella Poldark.
These novels are such a refuge from the ugliness and confusion of our current times
Clearly there was as much mess and overwhelm in the late 1700s n early 1800s... and Graham does not avoid the challenges of that era.
But he portrays the Cornwall (and French) countryside and folk of low and high station with such lush verbal artistry, that I come away seeing more the beauty in my current suroundings and doings much more.
I treasure escaping to the absorbing and beautiful world Graham has fashioned... and the way I find greater value in my "today" his artistry tunes me to.

Absolutely loved it. I have listened to all eleven books. Oliver certainly brings the story alive. You could imagine you are living in the midst of the drama.
I still enjoyed this book, it still got me out walking the dog every day and I still think winston graham is underrated as a story teller. But it doesn't compare with the earlier books for sheer nail-biting, edge of the seat suspense and drama. There is still loads to learn about the craft of storytelling, but in some ways for bad reasons - by asking oneself what made the earlier books better.
