Emma Marriott’s The World of Poldark explores the characters, the compelling stories and the era that Winston Graham – and the television series – set out to recreate, the England that Ross Poldark returned to from the American War of Independence. England, and especially Cornwall, was then marked by social unrest and a deep division between rich and poor. It was a place of tin mines and shipwrecks, of new money versus old, of harsh justice and great kindness. And, above all, it was a place that inspired Winston Graham’s beloved novels.

Amid the turmoil of eighteenth-century Cornwall, Ross comes back to a home in ruins, his father dead and his childhood sweetheart engaged to another – his own heart as battered as the country around him.

Experience the great houses and the glorious landscapes and follow the cast of characters as their stories play out against the backdrop of Cornwall’s wild beauty, through interviews with the actors, behind the scenes insights and in-depth information on costumes, props and locations. Packed full of behind the scenes photographs, The World of Poldark is the ultimate guide to the popular series.

***Melanie #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***
This book is absolutely a must read for any Poldark fans out there.   With glorious pictures a fascinating inside to everything that goes into the production of such an incredible show, this will be a book I revisit over and over.   The glimpses into the real history and the reasoning behind some of the adaptations was captivating. It immediately made me want to go and rewatch the show with this new inside knowledge.

An easy 5 stars from me.  If I could award it more …. I would!
