There are so many outstanding ualities within this first novel in a series of twelve Thank you to Goodreads friend Candi for first introducing me to this series with her wonderful reviews Thank you too for the inspiration from Goodreads friend Diane who decided last year to read this series at the rate of one per month and whose reviews were a monthly reminder to finally start reading this series I loved the idea of one per month for the entire year and it became one of my first personal reading goals for 2019This novel was first published in 1945 and the last novel of this series was published in 2002 I did not know that this series began so many years ago it is as fresh and feels as new as if it had been written yesterday The writing is outstanding in all ways rich in historical fact dynamic characters beautifully descriptive and atmospheric and rich in its storyline of family culture ventures and adventuresThe novel covers the period of time in Cornwall from 1783 to 1787 It is the time when copper mines and tin mines accounted for a large proportion of the wealth for those in the upper social classes while fishing working in the mines and servitude were the primary occupations of the lower classes Both classes have a dark side to their ‘occupations’ too The wealthy indulged themselves in excesses of food and drink to the detriment of their health as well as gambling and affairs The poorer folks’ dark side is desperate largely poaching and petty theft to feed hungry bodiesThere is a huge cast of characters in this novel yet they are introduced so smoothly and with such a strong imprint of their personalities that I ‘knew’ them immediately and intimately from the beginningThe Poldark family has two branches 1 Elder brother Charles the inheritor and caretaker of the ancient family’s lands and mines his children Francis and Verity and 2 Younger brother Joshua who dies early leaving his son Ross the small farm and holdings that Ross returns to after his service in the War of Independence in America This novel traces the time of transition when control and responsibility pass from the older generation to the youngerI was especially fascinated with Cornwall as the setting for this novel because it was a part of England that I was particularly drawn to many years ago when I spent a month exploring the English southwest This book contains a richness of information about the Cornish countryside its people and its even ancient history all liberally sprinkled throughout the storyAs a family saga this first of the series sets a tone of time and place that finds me eagerly looking forward to the second novel next month

Warming gripping saga set in the windswept landscape of Cornwall With an unforgettable cast of characters that spans loves lives and generations this extraordinary masterwork from Winston Graham is a story you will never forge. This book is featured on this week's Shabby Sunday ’s 1783 and Ross Poldark is returning home after fighting in the American Revolutionary War When he arrives he learns that his father is dead his copper mine is failing and his sweetheart Elizabeth whom he loves is engaged to his cousin Francis Not only that but the servants haven’t been keeping up with the estate and it’s in shambles His joyful homecoming is crushed and everything is a mess with chickens scattered around in his living room Ross plans to get back on his feet again but his finances are a mess and he struggles to fit back into society The future is looking fairly grim He meets a fourteen year old girl named Demelza rescues her from her abusive father and gives her a job as a kitchen maid at Nampara where he resides As time moves on Demelza grows up into a beautiful young woman their relationship changes and they get married against everyone’s wishes There’s hardly a single soul who approves of their marriage and Demelza will have to prove that she’s a worthy wife Not only does she struggle with society she struggles with herself because she knows Ross still loves Elizabeth and Demelza is the one who wants to be number one in Ross’s life The book is full of memorable characters with Demelza being my favorite Winston Graham has a way of making the wind sea weather and landscape connect to the feelings of the characters and the imagery of Cornwall pulls you in with all the vivid details “He felt he would like one look at the sea which even now was licking at the rocks behind the house He had no sentimental notions about the sea; he had no regard for its dangers or its beauties; to him it was a close acuaintance whose every virtue and failing every smile and tantrum he had come to understand” The book started off slow for me but once I got into the story I loved it and couldn’t wait to read the other books in the series I ended up reading every single book in The Poldark Saga and highly recommend it to all that enjoy reading historical fictionMy rating on this is 5

review Ross Poldark

Ross Poldark Read Ý 7 ç In the first novel in Winston Graham’s hit series a weary Ross Poldark returns to England from the American War of Independence 1783 looking forward to a joyful homecoming with his beloved Elizabeth But instead he discovers his father has died his home is overrun by livestock and drunken servants and Elizabeth—believing Ross to be His father has died his home is overrun by livestock and drunken servants and Elizabeth believing Ross to be dead is now engaged to his cousin Ross has no choice but to start his life anewThus begins the Poldark series a heart. 35 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️“The greatest thing is to have someone who loves you and—and to love in return” This was a very charming book with very charming characters I had watched the show before I started with this series so I knew the characters and the plot pretty well I have to admit this is literally the first time I like the show than the book It took me by surpriseThis book is about a man called Ross Poldark who after a grim war in America comes back to his home to find his father dead the girl he loves engaged to his cousin and his estate derelict Then a girl named Demelza comes into his life and changes everythingI believe this book being old as fuck had a different writing style than I prefer Too many characters who had no point in being mentioned too many difficult words the narrator being changed right in the middle of the chapter with no warning sometimes it made me confused But I have to admit it didn't get me bored at all Probably the pace was a tiny bit slower than I like but it didn't get me bored at allThe relationship of Ross and Demelza was the best part of the book it made my ship heart die They were literally adorable and they kept this beautiful aspect in this show I think the show did a better job of gripping my interest with the mine and copper affairs The book didn't really succeed in that Also the show made some characters likable and hatable than the book did Also where is the George I like to hate Where is this son of a bitch WHERE IS HE The show did an amazing job with making me feel strong things about the characters Love and hate There was no middle ground I need to feel the hate for George in these books I need to hate a character in these booksMy opinion about this book has been conflicting but I have ordered the next one and I want to get into it I'll certainly rewatch the show in the summer One of my favorites of its kind I have to say I hope I will like the next book best and give it a better ratingAlso DEMELZA GO GIRL WE'RE ALL WITH YASO TILL THE NEXT ONE K BYE
