Ross Poldark 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.
Ross Poldark returns to Cornwall from war, looking forward to a joyful homecoming with his family and his beloved Elizabeth. But instead, he discovers that his father has died, his home is overrun by livestock and drunken servants, and Elizabeth, having believed Ross dead, is now engaged to his cousin. Ross must start over, building a completely new path for his life, one that takes him in exciting and unexpected directions....
Thus begins an intricately plotted story spanning loves, lives, and generations. The Poldark series is the masterwork of Winston Graham, who evoked the period and people like only he could, and created a world of rich and poor, loss and love, that listeners will not soon forget.

What did you like best about this story?

The real world ups and downs of the people in this novel. We all have lived a life of good and bad times. Lost love. Family we may or may not get alone with. You can relate to the story and the people in it.


Have you listened to any of Oliver Hembrough’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not and I did enjoy his voice. That is important for an audio book. I will look for him in future.

Any additional comments?

I must say well done to the Screenwriters and Actors who have put the novels in a nutshell and given us all of the people, places and inter thoughts of each person for us to see and love on our TV screen. I love the books and I love the TV show from the 70's and the current one on PBS 2015.

Wonderful story. Wonderful storytelling!

I love Audible because I can absorb more books than I ever could by reading them. The characters are well described, not just in appearance, but in their thoughts and actions. The narrator was great, clearly defining which character was speaking with different voices and accents, female as well as male. I look forward to the next book in this series!
