The gripping fourth novel in Winston Graham's classic Poldark saga, the major TV series from Masterpiece on Ross Poldark plunges into a highly speculative mining venture, he risks not only his family's financial security but also his already-turbulent marriage.

When his old flame Elizabeth Warleggan re-enters his life, Ross is tested like never before. But soon, his.The Warleggan family were a wealthy family from Cornwall. The Warleggans were originally poor but built their way up to the higher classes by becoming industrialists and bankers.

The aristocracy considered them an upstart, but they became increasingly powerful and wealthy. They were considered to be in the social class of landed gentry. The earliest known members of the family are Luke.

It's a little sad to think this is the last book.
