Winston Graham was the author of forty novels. His books have been widely translated and his famous series has been developed into two television series shown in 24 countries. Series: The Poldark Saga (Book 3). Paperback: 304 pages. Ive read all 12 of the Poldark series, and believe the first 4 books are the best. Winston Graham wrote the first 4 ( maybe 5?) in the 1950's and resumed the rest of the series 20 or so years later. While all are very well written and the story lines are compelling, the quality of the writing in the first few of the series is exceptional.

Poldark just gets better and better. Just when you think the second book - Demelza - has left him with more problems than you care to remember and a cliff hanger to beat all cliff hangers, this is the gripping continuation of the story.

It builds upon novels one and two but adds a real gripping edge to it all. Ross is on trial for his life. Having not long buried his first born, Julia, it’s a tragic time for him and Demelza anyway but when he’s arrested for luring two ships to shore and encouraging locals to plunder the goods, you just know the novel is going to be hard-hitting and a lot more heartbreaking yet.

I loved the introduction to the new characters here and the often darker tone of the events. There’s happiness too of course with Jeremy being born.

The historical background to this novel too is what really adds an edge - the year of 1790/1791 - the threat of war and unsettling times hits the shores of Cornwall as invasion looks likely. People in Poldark’s Cornwall are more anxious than ever and fear that the government crackdown in the country on the civil liberties of its people.

A gripping read in more ways than one and the new cover with Poldark and Demelza on the front is a lovely addition! There's a chance to win it on thebooktrail.com

As a great fan of historical novels, and decisively those inclusive of well researched accuracy, I am thoroughly enjoying this entire "Poldark" collection. Sir Winston Graham's writings are full of fascinating characters, their various storylines intriguing, and his vivid descriptions of the sea settings express his personal love of Cornwall with poetic color. Herein is a compelling contrast of social class struggles of the 18th century, the grimness of Britain's postwar recession, the looming threats of the rising French Revolution, and a ponderous view of Cornwall's copper mining industry, all come to life through Graham's diverse cast of characters. A rich weaving of timeless human perplexities, from the darker corners of despair and greed to the shine of droll humor and romance, with even a bit of Pygmalion for good measure. We shall always root for Ross Poldark even while wanting to knock some sense into him. Demelza Carne Poldark is more delightful than sunlight shining through a kaleidoscope, Verity Poldark Blamey should be sainted, Caroline Penvenen needs a good spanking, and George Warleggan is the villain everyone loves to hate. Not to mention Jud and Prudie Paynter, who add their own pickled version of Laurel and Hardy to the mix. For those who've already enjoyed PBS Masterpiece Theater's excellent productions based on the books, the reading of them offers a fuller immersion into the novels' panoramic story. And while there's no time-travel, "Outlander" aficionados may find Winston Graham's "Poldark" series an ample life-preserver while awaiting Gabaldon's much anticipated, but still delayed, final tome. Enjoy!

Ive read all 12 of the Poldark series, and believe the first 4 books are the best. Winston Graham wrote the first 4 ( maybe 5?) in the 1950's and resumed the rest of the series 20 or so years later. While all are very well written and the story lines are compelling, the quality of the writing in the first few of the series is exceptional. The later books introduce many new characters, but I did not become as engaged with them as with the earlier immediate family members and friends. That said, I have read the entire series twice over the years, and I return to them frequently as sort of a "palate cleanser" when I've read something that's poorly written. I've found that the first time I read the books, I was more focused on the story. The second time it was more for the pleasure of the beautiful writing.

This is the third book in the 12-volume novel. If you have followed the TV series, the books offer so much more - read them, too. There are many times that the author writes the thoughts of the characters and gives you a much clearer insight into his/her state of mind. In this volume, there is Ross' trial and the surprise outcome, the violence with Ross and George, and Demelza's late pregnancy boat ride. So much suspense just as with all the other volumes! I have just finished the 12-volumes and highly recommend it as an ongoing reading project. PS it is NOT about Jeremy Poldark - he is not even born until the last pages!

Being an avid follower of the PBS TV series. I couldn't wait to read this book. It was good, well but I frequently find when an author writes in accents or even a foreign language without much interpretation it can grow very difficult to understand. This 3rd book in the series follows the action & fills in some of the blanks that help to offer more substance to the story. Can't say I'm tempted to read many more of the books Winston Graham has written all about our favorite, Mr. Ross Poldark. If you are looking for a late 17th century story with well described characters this is a good one. I'm more eager, however, for the rest of the TV series. Mr.Turner who plays Ross Poldark is certifiably perfect in his role and all the supporting players only create a very vivid and imaginative tale. This is a case where I truly enjoyed the TV film much more than the book but both compliment each other.
