Romantic Fiction • 28.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

Jane Maxwell, passionate Scotswoman; Thomas Fraser, friend, lover and adventurer; and Duke Alexander Gordon, handsome husband to Jane, are inexorably intertwined in an intricate plot. Set in Scotland and America from 1760 through the early 1800's, this traditional romance story tells of finding, losing and regaining one's own true love. Dellaporta's soft Scottish burr narrates the story, effortlessly switching to Irish brogues and crisp British enunciation. Ware's three-dimensional characters and historical plot are enhanced by Dellaporta's near flawless rendition. Despite fluctuations in volume and an excess of bass in the recording, ISLAND OF THE SWANS captivates the listener throughout. M.B.K. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
