This riveting audiobook will appeal to fans of historical fiction everywhere. Cornwall, towards the end of the 18th century. Ross Poldark sits for the borough of Truro as Member of Parliament - his time divided between London and Cornwall, his heart divided about his wife, Demelza. His old feud with George Warleggan still flares - as does the illicit love between Morwenna and Drake, Demelza's brother. Before the new century dawns, George and Ross will be drawn together by a loss greater than their rivalry - and Morwenna and Drake by a tragedy that brings them hope...? And with the new century comes much change in the shocking seventh installment of Winston Graham's Poldark series, The Angry Tide.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Oliver Hembrough enhances Winston Graham's stellar writing in this seventh installment of a 12-part series set in eighteenth-century England. Ross Poldark, who lives in Cornwall and owns a mine, becomes a member of Parliament. Hembrough effectively delivers the vivid descriptions of Poldark's two different lives, one in cosmopolitan London and the other in Truro, where the peace of the countryside is a welcome change for him. Mention of characters such as Napoleon and Lord Nelson add realistic slices of history. Hembrough's skill at building suspense will terrify listeners before a tragic mine disaster. In contrast, a heartbreaking love letter and the recipient's prayers to God will bring tears. This was a hugely successful BBC TV series. S.G.B.
