The Angry Tide is the seventh novel in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.
Cornwall, towards the end of the 18th century. Ross Poldark sits for the borough of Truro as Member of Parliament - his time divided between London and Cornwall, his heart divided about his wife, Demelza.
His old feud with George Warleggan still flares, as does the illicit love between Morwenna and Drake, Demelza's brother. Before the new century dawns, George and Ross will be drawn together by a loss greater than their rivalry and Morwenna and Drake by a tragedy that brings them hope....

"From the incomparable Winston Graham...who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more." (Guardian)
I have always enjoyed the Poldark series by Winston Graham. He's a marvellous story teller and his writing so beautifully descriptive that when I finally got to visit Cornwall some years ago, I felt I had been there before! I have read all the books at least twice and I'm now enjoying the Audible experience and it's like reading them all for the first time again. I do hope Audible completes the series as they are all good and the story never gets stale as there are always new characters to get to know.
"I love this saga!"
As usual with these novels I love how human relations are not unidimensional. Many authors tend to present the character's relationships and feelings as a bit extreme so that they seem caricatures. In these novels, the characters seem so real
The cadence and the accents! He's a wonderful narrator and it's such a pleasure listening to him.
It didn't make me cry or laugh, but it did make me reflect on my own relationship with those close to me.
These books make me happy! I don't know why, but they do.
"Gripping Drama, fabulously narrated... Again"
More gripping historical drama from the Poldark series. Oliver Hembrough is a master narrator bringing the story alive in true theatrical style. I look forward to the next audio-book, will it be soon?
