Demelza is a heartwarming, gripping, and utterly entertaining saga that brings to life an unforgettable cast of characters and one of the greatest love stories of our age.
An impoverished miner's daughter, Demelza Carne is now married to Ross Poldark, who once rescued her from a fairground brawl. Her efforts to adapt to the ways of the gentry - and her husband - place her in hilarious and embarrassing situations, through which she becomes self-assured, mannered, and lovely, and the birth of her first child brings a joy she never experienced before.
But tragedy strikes where least expected, and sows the seeds of an enduring rivalry for Ross Poldark and the powerful George Warleggan, and tests Ross and Demelza's marriage and their love....
"From the incomparable Winston Graham... who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more." (The Guardian)

Excellent follow up to the first book!
As a previous reviewer noted, this book is even better than the first. I found out about this series by way of the recent BBC production. I wanted to read (listen) it before the series aired here in the U.S. While I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, I really loved this second book. The author delves more into the story and the characters and especially Demelza. It ends in such a way that you will want to get the third novel. I'm really hoping that audible has the next books available. Makes me want to visit Cornwall! The narrator is good, had no problems with her.
