Description

Ross Poldark is the first novel in Winston Graham's hugely popular Poldark series, which has become a television phenomenon starring Aidan Turner.

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 . . .

Ross Poldark is followed by Demelza, the second novel in this evocative series set in 18th century Cornwall.

Review quote

From the incomparable Winston Graham . . . who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more. * Guardian * The plot roars along as the sea crashes, rain lashes and wild winds whip up the spume. I swear you can almost hear the screaming gulls. * Daily Mail * Die-hard Poldark fans take note: if the TV series is not enough for you, there are 12 (yes, 12) novels in the original series . . . Love rivalry, war, class struggles - it's a rich soup of discontent, and there are some blistering lines in the books * The Times * Steeped in humour, romance, passion and tragedy, the Poldark books are as exciting and fresh as they are timeless and memorable. Don't miss them! * Lancashire Evening Post * Ross is one of literature's great heroes . . . [with] elements of Darcy, Heathcliff, Rhett Butler and Robin Hood -- Debbie Horsfield
