Publisher's Summary

Ross Poldark faces the darkest hour of his life in this third novel of the Poldark series.

Reeling from the tragic death of a loved one, Captain Poldark vents his grief by inciting impoverished locals to salvage the contents of a ship run aground in a storm - an act for which British law proscribes death by hanging. Ross is brought to trial for his involvement, and, despite their stormy marriage, Demelza tries to rally support for her husband, to save him and their family.

But there are enemies in plenty who would be happy to see Ross convicted, not the least of which is George Warleggan, the powerful banker whose personal rivalry with Ross grows ever more intense and threatens to destroy the Poldarks.

And into this setting, Jeremy Poldark, Ross and Demelza's first son, is born....

The Poldark series is the masterwork of Winston Graham's lifework, evoking the period and people like only he can and creating a work of rich and poor, loss and love, that you will not soon forget.

    "Absolutely Loving This Series!"

    I have really enjoyed listening to this story, as I did the first two books in the series. Oliver Hembrough does a great job with the narration, I hope that he continues as narrator for the rest of the series.
    The biggest disappointment with the series is that although the books were written over 50 years ago, they are only now being produced as audiobooks due to the huge success of the new
    TV series. I eagerly await the release of the rest of the books as audio versions!

    I've spent my entire life around the written word - writing it, editing it, teaching it. So, it's no wonder I also love to read it!

    "HOOKED ON POLDARK!"

    This third book in Winston Graham's series about the lives of Ross Poldark continues the family saga and sends it forward with a great plot and high tension. The booke begins where the second book ("Demelza") ends, with Ross facing possible death for his part in a shipwreck and the possible murder of George Warleggan's cousin Matthew Sanson. While Ross awaits his trial, Demelza works hard to create sympathy for her husband, hoping the positive comments about him in court will sway the jury and judge.

    Meanwhile, tensions continue to boil over between Ross and George and the breach between Ross and his cousin Francis doesn't abate.

    This book is plot driven but Graham has established such wonderful characters -- people you love and want to succeed.

    Oliver Hembrough, the narrator, does a magnificent job with this book. He captures the multitude of characters exceptionally well; I never was confused as to who was speaking. He narrates slowly and carefully and yet with passion and emotion.

    I can't wait to begin Book 4, "Warleggan." As soon as it's available, I'll be downloading it!

    "I love this book series!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Jeremy Poldark to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy audio books so I can listen while walking or doing chores. It's my preferred way to enjoy books. But I'll often get the Kindle companion book to use the Whisper-Sync function, for when I get a chance to sit and read. But I need the audio books first.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Demelza. Just a wonderful heroin. Unique and strong, who rises to become a lady, but still down to earth.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Hembrough – was your favorite?

    Oh, so many, it would be hard to pick. But probably Judd. Oliver really brings Judd's mannerisms to life. Very funny.


    If you could take any character from Jeremy Poldark out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Verity and Demelza together. It would be fun to have a ladies night out. Oh, I guess Elizabeth could use a night out two, so I'd drag her along.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE!! I hope the rest of the series is being recorded. I'm almost finished with Jeremy, only 3 chapters left and I'm so sad that I can't jump right in to Warleggan. And I don't want to just turn to the Kindle version. I need something to listen to.

    Please announce when more books will be recorded.

    "Can't get enough!"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. I think it is my favorite so far in the series. I heard about the BBC television series of Poldark from a friend and watched the first season. I was hooked!! I didn't want to wait another year to find out what happens, so I found the beginning of the book series on Audible. I listened to Books 1 and 2 which cover Season 1 of the Poldark series. Books 1 and 2 weren't as exciting as I already knew the outcomes of those books. I started "Jeremy Poldark" with great anticipation and I was not disappointed. I devoured it in a few days. I am bummed that the next book(s) in the series are not yet available on Audible. Audible: Please please please continue to record the rest of the series!!! Jeremy Poldark had some great moments: finally a few triumphs for Ross and Demelza amidst all of the trials they've had to endure. However, nothing ever comes easily for them as they work tirelessly for every minor success that they achieve. I also came to appreciate Jud Painter in this series. I laughed out loud during a couple scenes he was in. All in all a very enjoyable installment of the series. Can't wait for more!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Jeremy Poldark to be better than the print version?

    They are both wonderful

    Demelza! She is a strong and sensitive woman who does what she can to help and protect the people that she loves.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved Jud's court scene. Stupidity and wit in a hilarious combination!


    Any additional comments?

    "A bit of suspense and romance"
    What made the experience of listening to Jeremy Poldark the most enjoyable?

    So many characters that I have come to know over the past few books have made them all enjoyable. The court scene had me by the edge of my seat. I loved Judd's statement during the trial.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I still like Ross and Demelza. I also enjoyed Judd's reappearing.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Hembrough’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think he does a great job.


    If you could take any character from Jeremy Poldark out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Hmm, that is a hard one. I would think maybe the elderly aunt...
