(From the publisher):
As the Poldark family story draws to a close, it is Bella, precociously talented youngest daughter, who takes center stage. Determined to make her name as a singer, she will move between Nampara, her home on the rugged Cornish coast, and the dazzling world of London and European theater. Bella’s old flame, Christopher Havergal, encourages her, but her ambitions are deeply complicated by the appearance of French conductor Maurice Valéry, who has more in mind than exploring her talent. Here, too, is the continuing story of Clowance, the Poldark’s widowed daughter, courted by Philip Prideaux, a mysterious figure who emerges from the Battle of Waterloo. Finally, it is the story of a murderer, lurking in the villages of West Cornwall, who is long, too long, in being discovered. Written with power, humor, and elegance, this is a brilliant finale to Winston Graham’s saga.
