The Angry Tide
Ein Jahrhundert geht seinem Ende zu. Ross Poldark ist Mitglied des englischen Parlaments geworden und muss seine Zeit zwischen seiner Familie in Cornwall und seinen Pflichten in London aufteilen. Demelza leidet unter der häufigen Trennung. Bevor das neue Jahrhundert anbricht, werden alte Feindschaften von Verlust verdrängt, und eine Tragödie bringt un...more
The Angry Tide was another splendid chapter in the Poldark saga. At number 7, it also marks the beginning of the last half of the series – something I don’t really want to think about too much! I will certainly be very heartsick when this glorious journey ...more
This novel takes place in 1798-1799 in Cornwall 14 years after Ross and Demelza were married. Their quality of life, despite its two steps forward and one back pattern, is inching toward more prosperity and they never take it for granted. They also give back in any way they ca ...more
I began reading this book with a little trepidation as I didn't want to read anything depressing during the holiday season but I'm happy to report that The Angry Tide starts off with much vigor and energy - so much so that I found it difficult to put down.
I couldn't help but notice when reading how much slower time must have passed during th ...more
”Seeking perfection, Ross …in life it’s dangerous, for it makes the less than perfect seem less than enough.”
Here I am yet again, at the end of another chapter in the life of Ross Poldark. Tears again flowing freely, lump in throat. I must say that this was the most painful book in the series so far. The title being very aptly named.
”But one or two things have happened, Verity. Oh I know they are small things - small to set beside the...more
“Perhaps one aspect of arrogance lies in not being willing to accept what life sometimes expects one to accept.”
The Angry Tide is the seventh book in the Poldark series written by Winston Graham, and I must say, it was another great addition to a series that is complex and heartfelt.
This book explores dark undertones in a world where propriety is placed above decency and expectations of others are more important than one’s own life.
There is not much I can say without refe ...more

This installment of the Poldark saga is, like all the others, stellar writing and storytelling. You have lived with these characters so long by this stage that you know them by heart, and yet there is always something new and exciting and vibrant and alive about them.

Wow....I think it was the most painful book of the series so far....
I keep thinking about each book long after I finish them. The characters are so well fleshed, I look forward to each new day with them. And these people were tough, even and especially the women!

But now and then you do not have all the control of your feelings that you should have – and then thoughts and feelings surge up in you like – like an angry tide. And it is hard, sometimes it is hard to control the tide.’

I keep asking my family to read these with me but everyone else is content to watch the series on tv. :( I try to explain how there is sooo much more than Aidan Turner's dark locks and stubble but I don't think they believe me, lol.

I liked this one the best of the series so far. I can't decide if it's because I'm now getting new content (that I haven't previously seen on the tv show) or because the story really was just that good.
A lot happened in this book, and I'm pretty sure this is where the tv show has gotten to so far. So, new story to come. I'm so excited! :D
