Publisher's Summary

The 12th audiobook in Winston Graham's classic Poldark saga, now a major TV series from Masterpiece PBS.

Cornwall, 1818 

We continue the tale of Ross and Demelza; of the wayward Valentine Warleggan, whose existence keeps open the old wounds of the feud between Ross and George; of Bella, the Poldarks' youngest daughter, whose precocious talent as a singer is encouraged by her old flame, Christopher Havergal, and by a distinguished French conductor who has more in mind than Bella's music; of Clowance, the Poldarks' widowed daughter, who considers remarriage to one of two rival suitors; and of a murderer who stalks the villages of West Cornwall.  

In his Poldark series, Winston Graham explores the complications of love lost and the class struggle of early 19th-century England with a light, comic touch. Bella Poldark is the final Poldark audiobook.

sad to see it end

I have to admit I feel a real sense of sadness at finishing this book as it is the last in the Poldark series. The author, Winston Graham, took 12 years to publish this book, 12 years from the publishing of the prior book, 'The Twisted Sword'. This book was published in 2002 the year before the author passed away in 2003 when he was 95 years old. I have no proof of this but one could guess that he spent the final years of his life finishing up this book and the series. With his death it is with 100% certainty there will be no more books in the series and that's why I'm sad. I enjoyed this series from start to finish.

Goodbye Cornwall

I'm so sad this series is over... I'll miss the Poldarks, Cornwall, and Hembrough's outstanding narration.

the best one!

what a wonderful conclusion to the poldark series. with it's own storylines, but true to the poldark message and providing plenty of drama, this final book gave me great satisfaction as a listener.

Possibly My Favorite

I’m far from ready to say goodbye to the Poldark’s Cornwall. The second generation is as dear to me as the first. There were moments when I laughed out loud, and moments that I was close to tears. Graham artfully includes reminisces from the first 6 novels into this book as he brings his stories to a written conclusion. His hints at a future for the Poldarks and their loved ones that makes me want for more.

Love Poldark series

I love all of the Poldark series book. They are among my favorites. The narrator does a wonderful job. However, in this series the sound is just off. When it was playing on my car stereo I even thought there was something wrong with my speakers. It’s just this book. The other series books sound good.

Best Book Series!

The Poldark series by Winston Graham is the best stories I've ever read. The characters are charming and well developed. The performance on Audible was outstanding. I just finished book 12 and loved every moment. I'm very sad there are no more, but am delighted with the experience.

The end of an era, sadly not much resolved

Did not enjoy as much as previous books in Poldark series. The story of Bella was slow and disjointed as characters flitted in and out of view. Rather a flat denouement that left many unanswered questions.

Didn’t Want the Series to End

You know you love a story when you wish the author had written 10 more books. This series will take its place among my all-time favorites. Of course the writing was superb, but the narrator made the story. Being able to create distinguishable voices throughout the series was remarkable. He made it seem like I could just relax and listen while he did the work of making the characters come to life. I’m definitely going to find more books narrated by Mr. Hembrough. Now Masterpiece Theater needs to pick up where they left off and finish the series. :)

Amazing ending!

Non-stop action and Poldark family love all around. Satisfying end to the series. I’m going to miss 19th century Cornwall.
