Publisher's Summary

The Twisted Sword is the 11th in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.
Cornwall, 1815. Demelza sees a horseman riding down the valley and senses disruption to the domestic contentment she has fought so hard to achieve. For Ross has little option but to accept the summons - and travel to Paris with his family as an 'observer' of the French armed forces.
Parisian life begins well, with an exhilarating round of balls and parties. But the return of Napoleon brings separation, distrust and danger to the Poldarks...and always for Demelza there is the shadow of the secret she does not share even with Ross.


What the Critics Say

Such a nourishing escape... and lense.

Now I move on to the last in the series: Bella Poldark.

These novels are such a refuge from the ugliness and confusion of our current times
Clearly there was as much mess and overwhelm in the late 1700s n early 1800s... and Graham does not avoid the challenges of that era.
But he portrays the Cornwall (and French) countryside and folk of low and high station with such lush verbal artistry, that I come away seeing more the beauty in my current suroundings and doings much more.

I treasure escaping to the absorbing and beautiful world Graham has fashioned... and the way I find greater value in my "today" his artistry tunes me to.
