Home Winston Graham The Stranger From the Se. Why don’t we send Poldark?’ was a sentence that was heard more than once in government circles over the next few years.

Home Winston Graham The Stranger From the Sea. Home. The stranger from the s. .The Stranger From the Sea, . To begin, he had been invited to take part in a mission to report on the conditions in which English troops lived in the West Indies. He was away six months.

Book Eight of the Poldark Series, The Stranger from the Sea takes place ten years after Book Seven, The Angry Tide. There are 12 books in the Poldark Saga, written by Winston Graham from 1945-2002. I was concerned that this would mean an abrupt transition from the story of Ross and Demelza to that of the next generation. I have had this happen with other sagas and found it disconcerting. Not to fear, Winston Graham knows precisely how to tell a story with continuity and progress mixed in perfect proportions. The books are set in Cornwall, starting with Ross Poldark in 1783 and ending with Bella Poldark in 1820. It's official - I love this series!

The Poldark family awaits the return of Ross from his mission to Wellington's army in Portugal.

The Stranger From The Sea is followed by the ninth book in the Poldark series, The Miller's Dance. From the incomparable Winston Graham.

Things change for Jeremy the day he rescues a stranger from the sea, hence the title, but as Jeremy and Stephen Carrington become friends, it soon becomes clear that Stephen isn’t being entirely honest about himself. Stephen’s arrival also proves significant to Jeremy’s sister, seventeen-year-old Clowance, who falls in love with the handsome stranger but she isn’t blind to his deception and keeps him at arm’s length.

"Save a stranger from the sea and he will turn your enemee."
The Stranger from the Sea (book 8 of the Poldark saga) begins ten years after book 7, The Angry Tide, ended. Life has continued for our familiar inhabitants of Cornwall. Children have grown and more children have been born and the author cleverly catches us up on all the occurrences by a chance reunion and conversation in Portugal on the eve of a battle between French and British forces. My knowledge of historic events during this time period is embarrassingly lacking, but I remember references to Napoleon and the "Battle of Waterloo." My memory of this event and some of the historic figures was enough that I felt a little prescient as the characters of the book attempted to navigate the politics and business climate of the time. History tells us that the war will go on for a while longer and have some impact on both the Poldarks, their friends, and the Warleggans. I would have been content to read the entire book series without inner knowledge of George Warleggan's love life, but the author takes us through that journey nonetheless. By being inside George's head, we truly come to appreciate how little he understands people and their motivations. Fortunately, his story is a small deviance from the more enjoyable story of Ross, Demelza, and their growing children. I think this book was meant to introduce us to the new personalities of this next generation, the coming age of invention, and the curse of war. Despite the ominous passage quoted above, the reader is spared major drama. Despite containing less excitement in this book than some of the previous, it held my attention through some long reading sessions!

Dream
The Stranger from the Sea is the eighth book in the twelve volume series on the life of Captain Ross Poldark. The series is set in late eighteenth and early nineteenth Cornwall during the Napoleonic era. In this book we learn that Ross has been in Portugal fighting with the Duke of Wellington's army against the forces of Revolutionary France. Back home in Cornwall we see George Warleggan the widower courting a young aristocrat. The younger Polkdark children Clowance and Jeremy are courting. Ross and Demelza are in middle age but they are still very much in love as they see their family grow. The new character Stephen Carrington provides adventures on the sea with his smuggling endeavors. He is a young romantic Byronic figure.
The Poldark volumes are fascinating glimpses into life in Great Britain during the Napoleonic era and provide a wide cast of characters who are complex human beiungs. Winston Graham is a fine writer. Once you read the first book in this excellent series you will be hooked!

Rarely have I enjoyed a series as much as this. The characters are richly drawn and always evolving. Winston Graham has a lovely and novel way of describing the physical beauty of Cornwall and its sea. He has created a fascinating world of 18th century England and describes it as if from firsthand knowledge. The Poldark series stands out as one of my favorites in a long lifetime of avid reading. Aarf!

I really didn't think Winston Graham could top the ups and downs of Ross and Demelza's relationship. But I'm finding the development of Jeremy and Clowance very addictive. I also like that although Ross and Demelza have settled down, their relationship is more playful. They are like the cool parents on the block. Can't wait to see what happens with that Carrington fella..he looks like trouble!

Fantastic. This boy ok is heavier on the war and on steam engines than social and political drama, but still good book. It is set many years after the previous book, about 12 years later, so most of the story surrounds the new generation such as Ross' young adult children.

Unlike some of the other reviews I've read, I like the fact that the focus is on the next generation in this book. It's the natural progression and about time we find out who they are at the age Ross and Demelza's romance began. At this point I still am caught up with the story....so ON TO BOOK NINE (yeah!!)

As Captain Poldark and Demelza watch their children grow up, we get to fall in love with a new generation with fresh ideas about life. Wish I had found this book in 1981 when it was published but I thoroughly enjoyed it now as I watch my own children come to age.

This book dwelled more on the war efforts than I liked. The new stranger from the sea was introduced but not fully explained. Hopefully the next book will bring back Graham's engaging style.
