really liked it
bookshelves: 2022, british-literature, historical-fiction

I read the first installment a while ago, so I only had a dim recollection of what had happened; however, I thought Graham did a pretty good job of placing small narrative bits within the main story that got the reader up to speed without bogging down the story.

Most of this book centers around Demelza, who I like very much as a character. She has her distinct sense of putting right things that gone wrong, while still fighting her feelings of being inferior to Elizabeth, Ross' first love.

Meanwhile, Ross is trying to keep the mines going, which plotline, while important to the story, didn't interest me as much.

Overall, a good installment and will pick up book 3.
