A Novel of Cornwall 1818-1820Book - 2002
Generations have fallen in love with the Cornwall of Graham's magical Poldark novels. The stories of the Poldark family - Ross, strong, independent squire at Nampara and his beautiful, outspoken wife Demelza; their son Jeremy, killed at the battle of Waterloo; their talented, headstrong daughter Bella; and their long-standing feud with humourless banker and landowner Sir George Warleggan - have sold millions of copies and in the 1970s were made into the most appealing and widely watched TV series of the decade. Now, the twelfth and final novel brings the family story to a close - with Bella taking centre stage, moving between her home at Nampara on the rugged Cornish coast and the wildly exciting world of the theatre in London and Europe at the beginning of the 19th century. 'Hurrah, Poldark rides again . . . We tingle with the sense that we are in good hands, transported by Graham's atmospheric prose.' DAILY MAIL 'Graham describes Cornwall so well and brings his characters to life so vividly that . . . Poldark is more than enjoyable fiction - it is real' CORNISH GUARDIAN
