In this fifth book of the Poldark series, several new characters and story lines are introduced, but the old familiar ones remain. Although Demelza features less in this book than the previous ones, she's ever present in Ross' thoughts. He knows her so well that she has become his conscience when he's wrestling with a tough decision. The conflict between social classes continue and George Warleggan still battles with his inner feelings of insecurity and his outer façade of superiority. The slower bits (my opinion) involving religious conflict between Methodists and Anglicans and battles between Royalists and Republicans in France are the only things that keep me from giving the book a 5 star rating. Fortunately, the author skillfully wraps up these events without losing the reader. The glorious reveal at the end, and the manner in which it is done, makes any "boring" battles in France worth plodding through.

I am a BIG fan of the PBS Poldark series and decided to read the books. I have bought e books up to #9 out of the 12. Yesterday I found them on Amazon for $2.99. I have enjoyed the books very much with more details etc of the story. Get a little frustrated with the English jargon in the book but I just find myself reading slower and concentrating more. For any Poldark fans, I could highly recommend the books.

It is rare that I believe a movie is better than the book upon which is based, but in this case it is so much better. The movie tightened up the plot and rearranged some of the events to heighten the drama. For example, when Drake is arrested for the alleged theft of the Bible that Geoffrey Charles gifted him, the movie emphasized that he would most likely be hanged. Morwenna agrees to marry the gross Ossie Whitworth if George drops the charges against Drake. Her love for Drake was so great that she sacrificed her life to save his. Beautiful, right? Well, this isn't how it goes in the book. Drake is released from prison because Ross threatens George with rioting on his estate, and Morwenna agrees to marry Whitworth because her mother nagged her into it. Not quite as beautiful or dramatic.

When I watch the movie, the cause and effect are obvious and the drama makes me quite emotional (not just because of the great screenwriters but the great actors too). I did not enjoy reading the book though it makes a great framework for more PBS dramas!

This is the fifth book in the Poldark series. I recommend reading the whole series in order to understand this one. Poldark has been made into a television series on PBS, and we are hooked. The books have a little more detail, of course, and any avid reader will enjoy both immensely. The story weaves sorrow, joy, romance, revenge, and history in one. It's a classic, to be read many times.

All of the "Novels of Cornwall" series by Winston Graham are little jewels, they tell stories that run together over eventful years and create a settlement of characters that become real to even a casual reader. His prose is expert enough that there is never the feeling of wasted hours, instead he facilitates an escape into the harsh beauty of Cornwall and an appreciation of the culture of a past era.

Love Winston Graham - what a beautiful, descriptive writer and I feel as if I have traveled back in time to Cornwall! I've lived in England and so reading his stories are nostalgic. The language is lovely and he has the period expressions and dialogue down! What a joy to read.

Well written! I appreciate the continuation of the story of the Poldarks. I came to know this series with the recent BBC production, and wanted more and could not wait for the next installment. The narrative picked up smoothly and the voice of the author is really captured well by the series..I jumped right in and could visualize all of the characters. I've already ordered the next book.
This will take you into an entire new surroundings, and a few new characters... Stay alert, or you'll end up having to go back to reorient yourself.. Voice of experience....learned much more regarding French and English political relationship... Good book in itself without being a part of the Poldark series
