by | Read by John Lee

Romantic Fiction • 16.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

John Lee's skill in creating voices for a large cast is fully engaged in this lengthy novel of family intrigue. Taylor Bradford's sprawling novel about the Deravenel dynasty spans most of the twentieth century, giving Lee the opportunity to showcase his talent for dialogue in a variety of settings. While Lee's performance is flawless and his characters are clearly distinguished, Taylor Bradford's characters remain two-dimensional and the plot ultimately unsatisfying. This novel is a sequel to THE RAVENSCAR DYNASTY, so the flatness of the characters and their lack of charisma may stem from the fact the sequel doesn't fully stand on its own.
