Publisher's Summary

The Loving Cup is the tenth in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.

Cornwall, 1813. A silver cup lies half forgotten in a dank cave, amongst a pile of stolen goods. Yet the tiny vessel and its inscription, "Amor gignit amorem", haunts the lives of the still-feuding Poldark and Warleggan families, as Ross, Demelza and the ambitious and powerful Sir George Warleggan watch their children make the decisions that will shape their destinies.

In the closing years of the wars against Napoleon, for Jeremy and Clowance, and for arrogant, cynical Valentine Warleggan, these are troubled and momentous times....

Another GREAT installment in the Poldark Series

The narration of this series is spot on. I really have enjoyed every book and fear I will have withdrawal pains when I finish the last in the series. I would highly recommend the books but start at the beginning with "Poldark".

Surprises at every turn.

Beautiful narration by Oliver Hembrough of this mesmerizing novel of Poldark saga. This novel had romance, suspense, flow and surprises. I was quite surprised by Ross. Loved this book and can't wait to pick up the next.

Can't wait for the next Audible books in this series to be released!

Of course this book follows the previous books in this series in its excellent performance, and the writings of its author. The many strange words used in the characters' dialects send me searching the web for their meanings, alas many of them are difficult to find. I think they add so much authenticity to the stories that I feel ps\art of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. I have heard that Graham thoroughly researched these historical periods, and I have learned a great deal of English history! I highly recommend this series to all!

Another Excellent rendering of the Poldark series

A dark and nail biting plot. It had me shouting 'no!' several times during my traffic jammed commute to work. Wonderfully narrated by Oliver Hembrough, who delivers a fully theatric performance. I am always drawn in and absorbed by his narration. Ross Poldark persists with some uncomfortable views on 'how to get your woman', I put this into its historical perspective, but it may cause offence to some.

Excellent, in context

You should probably only read this if you've read all before it in the series. It's a familiar world that is enjoyable only to those who have already spent time in it. To those of us who have, it's excellent in all ways.

My tenth book in the series

Where does The Loving Cup: A Novel of Cornwall 1813-1815 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A brilliant and at times gripping story line. I enjoyed this as much as all the other books

What does Oliver J. Hembrough bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He brings the story and the characters to life.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

You do get involved with the characters and are willing them to go in a certain direction.

Any additional comments?

A great listen - the story doesn't weaken despite this being the tenth book about the Poldark and Warleggan families

Gripping

There's so much to learn from this book. Unputdownable (unturnoffable?) - I was in such suspense... I had to remind myself it's only fiction, not really true.

Great listening

Beautifully read and, as always by Winston Graham, a gripping yarn. As a Cornishman I picked up on some name mispronunciations, but they do not deter from the overall enjoyment.

Another Poldark gripping yarn.

For Poldark fans a lot of potential love, heartbreak and underhand business to keep you wondering until the sequel.
