1783. Bruised and battered from a costly war with America, England is in the grip of a recession. Nowhere is harder hit than Cornwall, where the jobs and financial rewards of yesteryear have all but dried up. Only the bankers seem to be making any money as debts rise and mines close. Ross Poldark is horrified to return home to find his beloved country as broken as his own heart. In Ross's absence, his childhood sweetheart has married his cousin and best friend. Feeling betrayed by everything he loves - his family, his friends, his country - Ross decides to reopen his mine and provide jobs for the people of Cornwall. Breaking down class barriers in his attempts to build a new life, Ross will find new love but it will also cost him dearly.
