Publisher's Summary

The Miller's Dance is the ninth in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.

Cornwall, 1812. At Nampara, the Poldark family finds the New Year brings involvement in more than one unexpected venture. For Ross and Demelza, there is some surprising - and worrying - news. And Clowance, newly returned from her London triumphs, finds that her entanglement with Stephen Carrington brings not only happiness but heartache.

As the armies battle in Spain and the political situation at home becomes daily more obscure, the Poldark and Warleggan families find themselves thrust into a turbulent new era as complex and changing as the patterns of The Miller's Dance....

Better than the last

I wasn't sure last novel if I was going to like hearing about the children as much. I rather missed hearing more from Ross, Demelza, and the like in the previous book. This book, I enjoyed more than the last. Sad it was over. I am going to need to acquire the next one in the series.

Poldark is the best series ever!

I am a bit disappointed in myself did reading ahead of the Masterpiece series but it is just too long in between each season! It could go on for many years! I keep that the villains will get their due but Graham doesn't take the happily ever after approach. I wish there were 20 more books in the series. I shall be heartbroken when the last book ends.

Sweet addiction

Loved. Don’t like that Steven Carrington guy. I wish Demelza or Ross would give Clowance some of the 411 on him:-)

This book in the series is tremendously enjoyable & outstanding!

As with the other books in the series, this book is a wonderful part of the story and this audio production is as excellent as the others. I’m sure anyone who reads Winston Graham will be thrilled when they listen to it!

Not as exciting as previous books.

This book takes on the next generation of Poldarks, but I wasn't ready to move on. The ending seemed like the author just ran out of paper. No conclusion.

Another winner!

Where does The Miller's Dance: A Novel of Cornwall 1812-1813 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Miller's Dance is a wonderful continuation in the Poldark series. I just love seeing where these characters go. I never saw Jeremy's escapade coming--how very un-Poldark!

The Miller's Dance

As always, I thoroughly enjoyed this Book. I have previously read all the Winston Graham's Poldark books and I am loving the audio books as much, if not more.

Not as good but still Poldark

the book drags on a bit and characters such as Ross loose a bit of sparkle, while having his son commit crime for a woman, seems beneath the character. Yet it is nice to carry on following the family in its path.

As good as the other ones

this is the ninth book in the series I have listened to. The standard is maintained, the story is beautifully developed and the characters never lose their interest. I never realised Winston Graham was such a good writer. and Oliver Hemborough's narration is second to none. Completely recommend.

Wonderful narration by Oliver J Hembrough

These Poldark books by Winston Graham are brilliantly narrated and are lovely stories of late 18th and early 19th century Cornwall. I'm always immersed in all of the characters and their era with historical events woven in.
A really good narrator makes the book a really great listen. Well done Oliver J Hembrough, please don't ever stop narrating books.
I Can't wait to listening to book 10 The Loving Cup. :)

Love this series

Waited so long for this to be released. It was worth it but I wish we had more notice of release dates! A great story with a fantastic narrator. This is one of those series that you feel deep regret and loss when you're finished.

Back to form

I found the first eight books or so gripping. Then there was a slight lull. What could compare with the story of Ossie Whitworth? But with The Miller's Dance, the genius storyteller is back on form. Recommended.

Brilliant performance by Oliver Hembrough

Once you have listened to Oliver Hembrough's performance of the Poldark series, it makes it very difficult to continue in the print format. How does he do all those accents and voices? I can't wait for the next one!

Unimpressed with ending

Awkward inclusion of historical factoids
No happiness achieved for new characters.
I am beginning to doubt a happy conclusion.
Next!
