Free Reading The Black Moon: A Novel of Cornwall 1794-1795: Poldark, Book 5 (Audio Download): Winston Graham, Oliver J. Hembrough, Pan Macmillan Publishers Ltd.: Audible AudiobooksAuthor Winston Graham –

Every novel in the Poldark series that I have read is engaging, with plots linking well rounded characters depicted in a time of class division, poverty and war Obviously the writer has done a vast amount of research into the politics and living conditions of the period but he brings it alive with themes that touch all of us and tempers sober themes with delightful humour whether it be the dry comments of the cynical of his protagonists or the naive behaviour and statements of his country bumpkins, reminiscent of some of Thomas Hardy s characters in Under the Greenwood Tree All this is set in Cornish locations described vividly by someone who loves the area I thoroughly recommend this novel. Another good read in the Poldark series As with the previous books the story flows well They are detailed without being overly complicated, but hold your interest for what comes next A good bedtime book. After viewing Poldark on the box last year I bought all the novels on Kindle eleven books in all Winston Graham is so knowledgeable about Cornwall but he also includes a great deal of accurate factual detail about the development of steam engines, tin mining the Napoleonic wars. This is in the Poldark series and is a long book There are some differences between the book and the TV series and the book goes into greater detail than TV and it is all the better for that I enjoyed reading it and will be buying others in the series. The Black Moon is the fifth novel in Winston Graham s sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark Cornwall,The birth of a son to Elizabeth and George Warleggan serves only to accentuate the rift between the Poldark and Warleggan families And when Morwenna Chynoweth, now governess to Elizabeth s eldest son, grows to love Drake Carne, Demelza s brother, the enduring rivalry between George and Ross finds a new focus for bitter enmity and conflict Winston Graham writes superbly well his Poldark novels are page turners and this one is no exception The characters are well drawn and fascinating, the historic detail well researched and the story line riveting I recommend this and all Graham s books to readers.
