Publisher's Summary

*Named one of the best audiobooks of 2017 by The Times (UK)*

The Angry Tide is the seventh novel in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.

Cornwall, toward the end of the 18th century. Ross Poldark sits for the borough of Truro as a 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....

FINALLY!

FINALLY! Winston Graham's Poldark series is now complete. For a very long time, books 1-6 and 8-12 were on here, but not number 7, The Angry Tide. Though I read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it, I wanted my Audible collection to be complete. I live in Atlanta and sit in traffic every day, so I like to listen to these books to pass the time. THANK YOU for FINALLY releasing this one in the U.S.!

Best of the Series so Far

Graham has proofed himself a poet, historian, philosopher, and pastor story teller.

Hembrough does is more than a narrator. He portrays the personalities and emotions of all of the characters.
Do I really have to wait until may for the next book? That stinks!

The saga continues

If you are a fan of the series and have made it this far then keep on listening. The narrator is great. I like the time period descriptions. And, of course, there is always Ross and the rest of them leading their lives.
