Ross Poldark - Winston Graham Here we become acquainted with Ross Poldark and the life, society, and natural beauty of Cornwall.

Ross returns from America in 1783 (after a stint in the Army), world-weary, seeking the security of home and hearth to recoup his spirit. For a time, he is emotionally adrift as he goes about the business of making needed improvements to the family estate and opening a mine.

Through Winston Graham's writing, you become fully immersed in the lives of Ross, his relations, and friends.

Like a fine wine, the story gets better in the telling. Highly recommended.
