Overview

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.

Winston Graham is the author of forty novels. His books have been widely translated and the Poldark series has been developed into two television series, shown in 22 countries. Six of Winston Graham's books have been filmed for the big screen, the most notable being Marnie, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Winston Graham is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and in 1983 was awarded the O.B.E.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the 12th and final novel of Graham's acclaimed series, which debuted in 1945, the Poldark and Warleggan families continue to feud and try to deal with personal losses and social unrest after the Napoleonic wars. (Earlier "Poldark" books were made into a popular Masterpiece Theater series in the 1970s.) As the story opens, Valentine Warleggan's paternity still poisons the atmosphere, and his financial and marital troubles form a major narrative strand set firmly against the saga's familiar background of Cornwall. Meanwhile, Bella Poldark's desire for a musical career takes her to stages in London and France, where she is involved with rival suitors. Her widowed older sister, Clowance, must also choose between two men of vastly different backgrounds who propose marriage. A host of other characters and subplots, including a series of murders, keeps the action bubbling. Graham surmounts the daunting challenge of reminding readers of major events and characters from previous Poldark novels. Still, even devoted fans of the books or the BBC series may require a refresher. Public libraries with earlier volumes will want to complete their set, but the novel's ties to its predecessors reduce its interest as a stand-alone novel.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State Univ.
