The twelfth and concluding novel in the historical Poldark saga is familiar to many from the "Masterpiece Theater" adaptation. We pick up the Cornish Poldark family after the battle of Waterloo. Patriarch Ross Poldark's youngest, Bella, is off to London to improve her remarkable singing voice with a leading teacher. But this is just one of the plots, which also includes a murder mystery involving the large cast of characters. This abridgment emphasizes the scenes of well-written dialogue between the fascinating dramatis personae. Michael Maloney does a fine job with these scenes by virtue of his skill with characterization. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
