Better than the PBS series. Outstanding. ( )

The second book in the Poldark series focuses on Ross' wife, Demelza, during the years of 1788-1790. There's lots of drama related to Ross' mining operations, a murder committed by a good friend, the demise of Ross' cousin Francis and the birth of their first child. Book 3 will move through the years of 1790-1791 and I look forward to seeing what happens next. ( )

Book 2 in the Poldark series. Read book 1 first!!
The saga continues. Demelza and Ross have been married for a while, and Demelza continues to struggle to find her place and feel like she fits in. Their daughter, Julia brings joy to their lives. Ross is determined to fight for the struggling cooper miners and wrestle it out of the controlling hands of the Wauregans. Demelza's sense of what is right and just, leads her help Verity, her beloved cousin by marriage. What ensues splits Ross and his cousin Francis with ramifications the ripple far, testing Ross and Demelza's marriage and well being. There are trials and tribulations which seem insurmountable. ( )

The second book in the series - not quite sure why it's entitled Demelza as I think it has more of Ross - but it is a continuation of her story and growth with Ross, the developments of the time - mining, removing the ores, banking, shipwrecks and the troubles of the time in the closenet communities. Plague, hunger etc. ( )

Plot Overview: Demelza is the second book in the Poldark series. As some background, Ross Poldark recently returned home from fighting in the Revolutionary War in America and came home to discover his fiancé didn’t wait for him and was now engaged to be married to his cousin. He comes back to his house in a bit of a shambles and has to start over. After he invests in a new mine and gets it up and running, he gets entangled with Demelza and eventually marries her, to the disappointment of high society in Cornwall. The second book picks up where the first book left off with Demelza having given birth to their new baby. She then goes on a secret mission to bring love back into Verity’s life (Verity being Ross’s other cousin), which results in a whole slew of problems.

Characters: While Ross was really the focus of the first book, the second book focuses in more on Demelza’s character (though the book does cover a vast number of characters living in Cornwall). She struggles with having come out of poverty and trying to fit in to high society and the people of Ross’s class. Demelza’s greatest downfall is that she wants to please everyone (at least most people) and make sure everyone has found happiness wherever it may be. So, she will go to the ends of the earth to make sure that the people she loves are happy even if this means acting impulsively and making rash decisions.

Stand-Outs: The Poldark series so far has been fairly atmospheric, being set in the countryside of Cornwall. It’s a bit slow-moving but really fits the bill as far as a good BBC/PBS drama goes (there’s a show!). There’s a vast cast of characters and the story really stays true to the time period.

If you like: English countryside settings, slow-building plots, lots of description, post-Revolutionary War time period, a bit of romance, BBC style sweeping atmospheric tales ( )

Ross slid into the room. She was playing the music from one of Arne's operas. He listened for some minutes, glad of the scene, glad of the music, and the bordering quiet. This was what he came home for.
He stepped silently across the room and kissed the back of her neck.
She squeaked, and the spinet stopped on a discord.
"A slip o' the finger and phit, yer dead," said Ross in Jud's voice.
"Judas! you give me a fright, Ross. Always I'm getting frights of some sort. No wonder I'm a bag of nerves. This is a new device, creeping in like a tomcat."
Hers was the loveliness of gracious, aristocratic womanhood, used to leisure and bred to refinement. She came from uncounted generations of small landed gentlefolk. There had been a Chynoweth before Edward the Confessor, and, as well as the grace and breeding, she seemed to have in her a susceptibility to fatigue, as if the fine pure blood was flowing a little thin. Against her Demelza was the upstart: bred in drunkenness and filth,a waif in a parlor, an urchin climbing on the shoulders of chance to peer into the drawing rooms of her betters; lusty, crude, unsubtle, all her actions and feelings were a stage nearer nature. But each of them had something the other lacked.
