Publisher Description

*Named one of the best audiobooks of 2017 by The Times (UK)* "Narrator Oliver Hembrough's plethora of accents and voices captures the diverse characters and vivid atmosphere of this rich family saga...Variations in Hembrough's cadence and pitch enhance the drama of the story, creating an intriguing listen for lovers of historical fiction and romance." — AudioFile Magazine The Angry Tide is the seventh audiobook in Winston Graham's classic Poldark saga, now a major TV series from Masterpiece on PBS. This riveting audiobook will appeal to fans of historical fiction everywhere. Cornwall, towards the end of the 18th century. Ross Poldark sits for the borough of Truro as Member of Parliament - his time divided between London and Cornwall, his heart divided about his wife, Demelza. His old feud with George Warleggan still flares - as does the illicit love between Morwenna and Drake, Demelza's brother. Before the new century dawns, George and Ross will be drawn together by a loss greater than their rivalry - and Morwenna and Drake by a tragedy that brings them hope . . . . And with the new century comes much change in the shocking seventh installment of Winston Graham's Poldark series, The Angry Tide.

“Narrator Oliver Hembrough enhances Winston Graham’s stellar writing in this seventh installment of a twelve-part series..Hembrough effectively delivers the vivid descriptions of Poldark’s two different lives, one in cosmopolitan London and the other in Truro, where the peace of the countryside is a welcome change for him. Mention of characters such as Napoleon and Lord Nelson add realistic slices of history. Hembrough’s skill at building suspense will terrify listeners before a tragic mine disaster. In contrast, a heartbreaking love letter and the recipient’s prayers to God will bring tears. This is a hugely successful BBC–TV series. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
