Morning all, I’ve recently picked up the Poldark series while watching the tv show. However, since series 5 doesn’t actually follow the books I thought I’d make a start on the rest. I believe there’re around 12 books? I maybe wrong. Similar to the Harry Potter books in a sense that it’s been adapted to the screen, the books go into so much more detail about other characters which makes a lot more sense than the TV show. Plot: Into the 1780s and 1790s, Capt. Ross Vennor Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his home Nampara in Cornwallafter three years in the army. Upon his return home, he discovers his father Joshua has died, his estate is in ruins and in considerable debt, and his childhood sweetheart Elizabeth is engaged to his cousin Francis. In town, Ross encounters a young woman named Demelza Carne, dressed in one of her brother's clothes. After learning that her father repeatedly abuses her, Poldark offers her lodging and work as a kitchen maid. He then strives to help his father's tenants and the people of the village while attempting to run the copper mines he inherited, sought after by his rival, the greedy and arrogant George Warleggan.
