Book Review: Ross Poldark by Winston Graham

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Genre: Historical Fiction

Age Recommended: 14 and up

I initially fell in love with this series when I was watching the TV show adaptation of it, called Poldark, on Amazon Prime. After finishing all four seasons of it, I was determined to read the books to find out what happened next, so I requested the series as my birthday gift and my parents delivered :). This book was really well-written and I feel like reading the novel counterparts to any TV show or movie is a fantastic idea because the novels are significantly more in-depth regarding character relationships and plot developments.

Ross Poldark has just returned from war to find out that he is presumed dead by all, and that Elizabeth, the woman who was going to marry him upon his return is now engaged to his cousin, Francis. To add to this, his father has passed away and left him nothing but a decrepit house and a failing mine.

But Ross is determined to make the most out of his return: he cleans up his house and sells enough of his belongings to start the mine back up again, regardless of the obstacles that stand in his path.

What he doesn’t expect is a young, beautiful, and sassy cook who turns his life upside down while teaching him to see the world a different way. This is the story of a man who maybe, just maybe, learns to fall in love with life all over again.
