"From the incomparable Winston Graham...who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more." -THE GUARDIAN. What Readers Say: "The Poldark series is the most powerful reading experience I have ever had." "Wonderful characters, evocative sense of place and time." "If you haven't read the Poldark series, and care anything for Cornwall, the eighteenth century, historical romance in its truest form, historical fiction, or just a darn good story that will change your life, then you should read this book.
Ross Poldark faces the darkest hour of his life in this third novel of the Poldark series. Reeling from the tragic death of a loved one, Captain Poldark vents his grief by inciting impoverished locals to salvage the contents of a ship run aground in a storm-an act for which British law proscribes death by hanging. Ross is brought to trial for his involvement, and despite their stormy marriage, Demelza tries to rally support for her husband, to save him and their family. But there are enemies in plenty who would be happy to see Ross convicted, not the least of which is George Warleggan, the powerful banker whose personal rivalry with Ross grows ever more intense and threatens to destroy the Poldarks. And into this setting, Jeremy Poldark, Ross and Demelza's first son, is born.. The Poldark series is the masterwork of Winston Graham's lifework, evoking the period and people like only he can and creating a work of rich and poor, loss and love, that you will not soon forget.
