‘Tired from a grim war in America, Ross Poldark returns to his land and his family. But the joyful homecoming he had anticipated turns sour, for his father is dead, his estate derelict, and the girl he loves is engaged to his cousin. However, his sympathy for the destitute miners and farmers of the district leads him to rescue a half-starved urchin girl from a fairground brawl and take her home – an act which alters the whole course of his life.’
This book is easy and interesting to read with a lot of subtle humour. I really like what Demelza brings to this story, her light and comedic personality makes it all the more enjoyable. Despite the length of this story it seems like a quick read during the process. I reccomend this for anyone’s list.
