This mammoth audiobook tells the adventures of one Richard Morgan, a victim of circumstance who faces his tribulations with valor and honor. Set first in Bristol, England, in the 1770s, the novel recounts with great historical detail how Richard loses daughter, wife, and son. Later he is framed, sent to prison, then transported to Australia on a convict ship, where, at long last, life begins to treat him with the decency he deserves. Though this novel is not as compelling as her THORN BIRDS, McCullough tells a good story and gets outstanding support from narrator William Gaminara, who distinguishes himself with the differentiation of the many characters. He uses drama well, keeping a brisk pace, involving himself in the convoluted plot, and, through it all, remaining an admirer of Richard Morgan. It is a commendable piece of work. T.H.
