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)
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Characters have grown, plot remains interesting, twist are not expectable and performance excellent. This is where the original TV series ends as there where no more books to produce and the next book is 10 years later. Interesting how this is done. I enjoyed this book and if you are into this series, then you will not be disappointed with this book.
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.
"Book 7 in the Poldark series"
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. I have read the book also, but hearing it was even better and brought it to life. Can't wait to listen to book 8, "The Stranger from the Sea". Thank you Audible.
Excellent can't wait to listen to the last book. The storyteller made the story come alive.
Well read, entertaining ..I was enthralled by it all. Keeps you glued to the story.
"Winston Graham is getting better as he ages."
another book I could not put down
I suggest that you sequence them: ie book 7!
"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?
