Demelza is a heartwarming, gripping, and utterly entertaining saga that brings to life an unforgettable cast of characters and one of the greatest love stories of our age.

An impoverished miner’s daughter, Demelza Carne, is now married to Ross Poldark, who once rescued her from a fairground brawl. Her efforts to adapt to the ways of the gentry—and her husband—place her in hilarious and embarrassing situations, through which she becomes self assured, mannered, and lovely, and the birth of her first child brings a joy she never experienced before.

But tragedy strikes where least expected, sowing the seeds of an enduring rivalry for Ross Poldark and the powerful George Warleggan and testing Ross and Demelza’s marriage and their love.

Quotes & Awards

  • Demelza is more than a collection of romances. It makes us participate in movements which control the destinies of its character. It offers realistic and somber descriptions of Cornish farmers, fishermen, and miners pushed to the verge of revolution by unjust laws.”

    New York Times

  • “From the incomparable Winston Graham…who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “Graham’s (and thus Poldark’s) sympathies lie with the poor, the starved, the dispossessed; the outcast who is forced by wretched circumstance and an unforgiving fate to become an outlaw.”

    Independent (London)
