In the sixth book in the legendary Poldark saga, Ross is faced with a new battlefield, one involving the women whose lives are intertwined in his own.
Cornwall, 1795-1799: Although Ross Poldark, now something of a war hero, seems secure in his hard-won prosperity, a new dilemma faces him in the sudden infatuation of a young naval officer with his wife, Demelza. All four women - the four swans - whose lives touch Ross' face crises in these years. For his wife, Demelza; his old love, Elizabeth; his friend's new wife, Caroline; and the unhappy Morwenna Chynoweth, these are times of stress and conflict.

This book of the series seemed to be a bridge to complete the previous book and perhaps the next. Or perhaps, was derived from a bunch of notes containing ideas that were put together to get a book out. Found it less entertaing than the previous books of the series. Hoping the next book, (not available on US Audible so need to purchase in print!), is more entertaining.
Once again the narrator blew me away with his accents and his emotion. Truly able to feel like I'm in the story when listening to this series. A gorgeous book with sadness, happiness, triumph and turmoil. Love, hate, feuds, and so much more. And of course, beautiful Cornwall as the backdrop of a fantastic story with colorful, relatable characters.
The book continue the saga of the Poldark and Warleggen families. I found the performance of Oliver Hembrough continued its excellence!!
I only wish the seventh volume of this series (The Angry Tide) would be available to Audible subscribers in the USA.
When my eyes hurt, just sitting down and listening to a good book helps for me to relax.
How Ross grows with experience and knowledge of being close to home. The brothers Carne accepting face value what life has given.
I love romantic historical novels.
Of all the Poldark books, this book is probably the one, that humanize the characters the most.
Demelza experience what Ross struggled whit in the first books. And how easily she can be torn by her emotions and what it can lead too.
And what is most surprising. You feel empathy for her and Ross.
I love the way Winston Graham have described each characters almost to the last detail. And it makes you want to read more.
This series is definitely one you have to read or hear. It may seem long to some, but something happens in the books all the time, so when a book ends, you just have to start with the next.
Yes and I prefer him. Because he varies his voice between the characters it's easy to follow along easily.
Not my favorite in the series. Too much description re English politics and not enough interaction among the characters. Not sure if I will continue with it.
the way love is captured and expressed by the characters via the voice of the reader
Drake personified the love for humanity
Morwena "fixing" her fate
yes, if the reader can't grab my attn. I could not listen this wonderful saga
such a good listening while doing something else, or nothing at all!
