11th in the series

Cornwall 1815. Demelza sees a horseman riding down the valley and senses disruption to the domestic contentment she has fought so hard to achieve. For Ross has little option but to accept the summons—and travel to Paris with his family, as an "observer" of the French armed forces. Parisian life begins well with an exhilarating round of balls and parties. But the return of Napoleon brings separation, distrust, and danger to the Poldarks . . . and always for Demelza there is the shadow of the secret she does not even share with Ross.

I was excited when the last Poldark novel finally arrived. It would be a conclusion to the saga of the Poldark family after 20 years. It was one of the saddest novels in the series, wrapping up the stories of Jeremy, Clowance and Valentine. Graham's writing has matured over the years, but I never had the same affection for the second generation of Poldarks. They made the same mistakes, suffered disappointment & disillusion, but it was harder to understand what drove them on. A worthy conclusion to a wonderful series.
