Generations of readers have fallen in love with the Cornwall of Winston Graham's magical Poldark saga. The stories of the Poldark family - Ross Poldark, strong, independent squire at Nampara and his beautiful, outspoken wife Demelza; their son Jeremy, killed at the battle of Waterloo; their talented, headstrong daughter Isabella Rose (Bella); and their long-standing feud with the humourless banker and landowner Sir George Warleggan - have sold millions of copies and in the 1970s were made into the most appealing and widely watched TV series of the decade. Now, the twelfth and final novel brings the family story to a close. In this novel it is the youngest Poldark daughter, Bella, who takes centre stage, moving between her home at Nampara on the rugged Cornish coast and the wildly exciting world of the theatre in London and Europe at the beginning of the 19th century. 'Hurrah, Poldark rides again . . . We tingle with the sense that we are in good hands, transported by Graham's atmospheric prose.' DAILY MAIL 'Graham describes Cornwall so well and brings his characters to life so vividly that . . . Poldark is more than enjoyable fiction - it is real' CORNISH GUARDIAN

The twelfth and concluding novel in the historical Poldark saga is familiar to many from the "Masterpiece Theater" adaptation. We pick up the Cornish Poldark family after the battle of Waterloo. Patriarch Ross Poldark's youngest, Bella, is off to London to improve her remarkable singing voice with a leading teacher. But this is just one of the plots, which also includes a murder mystery involving the large cast of characters. This abridgment emphasizes the scenes of well-written dialogue between the fascinating dramatis personae. Michael Maloney does a fine job with these scenes by virtue of his skill with characterization. Y.R. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
