Summary

The Four Swans is the sixth novel in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.
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 a crisis 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.

Brilliant, but when will The Angry Tide be on Audibe?

As with the previous books this is a great story that superbly captures eighteenth century life and Cornwall in particular. In is brilliantly brought to life by Oliver Hembrough who manages to perfectly capture the voices of all the main characters.
In the Poldark series books 5,6&7 go together in close sequence (they were written together within a few years in the 1970s and film as a series by the BBC) so I can't understand why book 7, The Angry Tide, is not available to enjoy.

The series just gets better and better!

The narrator does an excellent job of bringing the characters in these books alive.
Each book is more gripping than the previous one!
Very frustrating that books 7 and onwards are not available in audio format. Come on Audible we want more from the Poldark series by Oliver Hembrough!

Excellent and just gets better

If you are up to this book, you are hooked. I actually slowed down the listening to this book as at the time the next book had not been narrated yet. Oliver Hembrough does an excellent job. The characters seem real and not two dimensional making these books beautiful stories. Loved the TV series and I am sure the latest remake is excellent but these books are a delight to listen to.
