Summary:

"""From the incomparable Winston Graham...who has everything that anyone else has, then a whole lot more.""
-The Guardian

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, and sows the seeds of an enduring rivalry for Ross Poldark and the powerful George Warleggan, and tests Ross and Demelza's marriage and their love...

    This narrator is pretty darn awful. She had quite a hard time with doing men's voices. Do not recommend. Could not listen to it. Poldark narrator is SO much better.

    PBS series brought me to this wonderful series. Interesting characters presented by two narrators. Wish the rest of the 12 in this series were available on Audiobooks. Patiently waiting!
