Ric Jerrom offers a rousing performance of bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford's recent romantic family saga, set in early-nineteenth-century England--the first of a projected trilogy. When Richard Deravenel, head of the family business, is killed in a suspicious fire, his 17-year-old son, Edward, joins with his cousin, Neville, to assume leadership and avenge his father's death. All kinds of complications ensue. Jerrom handles this fine abridgment beautifully. His elegant, warm voice shades character well. And his crisp, lively narration glosses over the author's use of long expository paragraphs to explain the plot. This is sure to delight Bradford's legions of fans.
