Jeremy Poldark is the third novel in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark. Cornwall 1790. Ross Poldark faces the darkest hour of his life. Accused of wrecking two ships, he is to stand trial at the Bodmin Assizes. Despite their stormy married life, Demelza has tried to rally support for her husband. But there are enemies in plenty who would be happy to see Ross convicted, not least George Warleggan, the powerful banker, whose personal rivalry with Ross grows ever more intense.

If you like Winston Graham you might also like to read books by Ken Follett, Daphne du Maurier and Kate Tremayne.

Reviews

'Ross is one of literature's great heroes ... [with] elements of Darcy, Heathcliff, Rhett Butler and Robin Hood' -- Debbie Horsfield

'Steeped in humour, romance, passion, tragedy and the stunning Cornish landscape, the Poldark books are as exciting and fresh as they are timeless and memorable. The perfect accompaniment to the thrilling TV series!' -- Pam Norfolk Lancashire Evening Post
