Happy Birthday, Valentine Warleggan (or is it Poldark…?!)!

Thank you Winston Graham for your twelve wonderful historical fiction novels about the Poldark family in Cornwall, England, 1783-1820. And thank you PBS for your amazing films based on the Poldark series.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all! 💘

    Mary, it’s nice to know you are a Poldark lover too. I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago about our Poldark encounters in Cornwall. https://theeternaltraveller.wordpress.com/2017/01/30/poldark-is-everywhere/

      OMGosh! I loved your post! Just read it! Somehow I had missed it as I subscribe to your blog. Wonderful photos and the map helped too. Someday I’ll tour that area, maybe when the hype has died down, though a pretty picture of Aiden Turner as Ross Poldark is still available! 😉 I am exhausting myself reading the books! I’m on book ten right now. I hate that the end is in sight, but I still can’t slow down! I read 2-4 hours each night! It’s become an obsession! The story is so captivating. What a wonderful and brilliant writer Winston Graham was. He knew so much about so many aspects of the story, which takes place from 1783-1820 – society, economics, mining, weather, history, sailing, steam engine, farming, plants, childbirth, doctoring, food and drink, human nature and haute couture! Each book is amazing. When I close the last one I imagine myself opening the first again and starting over again! I dread the end of the books and saying goodbye to the characters! 😦
