Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Winston Graham started writing his famous Poldark series in the 40s and 50s, eventually spinning them into twelve novels (the last published in 2002) a gripping saga of Ross Poldark and his family spanning 1783-1820. The first seven books were the basis of a classic BBC series and now they’re remaking the full saga. This is the first book in the series and it begins with Ross Poldark a stranger in his homeland, returned after fighting in the American War for Independence to find his father dead, his land on the verge of ruin and his fiancée engaged to another. Slowly he begins to rebuild his life and so begins this incredible, involving and hugely enjoyable saga.

Synopsis

Ross Poldark by Winston Graham

Tired from a grim war in America, Ross Poldark returns to his land and his family. But the joyful homecoming he has anticipated turns sour, for his father is dead, his estate is derelict and the girl he loves is engaged to his cousin. But his sympathy for the destitute miners and farmers of the district leads him to rescue a half-starved urchin girl from a fairground brawl and take her home - an act which alters the whole course of his life ...'From the incomparable Winston Graham ...who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more' Guardian
