In this novel, Winston Graham provides rich character sketches of Clowance and Jeremy, two of the Poldark children. Clowance is a free-spirited, sensitive, yet sober-minded kind of young lady. You see her becoming acquainted with a young man who was fished out of the sea, and are witness to her growing attraction to him. He (Stephen Carrington) is an adventurer, a dreamer, a striver, a charmer, and a gambler. Yet, he has a good heart. A big heart. I don’t think it at all strange or odd that a young woman should be attracted to a man who is a bit rough round the edges as Stephen is. The reader may consider Stephen Carrington as a force of nature in terms of his personality and spirit.
Jeremy’s story is especially touching. He and his father have a somewhat uneasy and distant relationship, which by turns, begins to become closer. And there is also Jeremy’s growing love for Cuby Trevanion.
“The Stranger from the Sea” is a wonderful story. In addition to Ross and Demelza, you begin to see in this novel how the lives of their children are shaping themselves. I liked that. And the author’s descriptions of Cornwall are so evocative. You can almost feel the salt of the ocean on your skin and clothes as it pounds against the beach, or feel the touch of a rising breeze sweeping across the hills, signaling the approach of an autumn storm.
I can hardly wait to read the rest of the series!
Can't praise these novels highly enough, I'm addicted to my daily dose of Poldarks!
The stories are a history lesson as well, in an enjoyable
easy to understand fashion.
I can say, with truth, that I am very glad that I still have some books in the series still to read.
This book is more about the children and their lives but is interspersed with old and known characters. I do wish we knew how Morwenna and Drake are doing. The industrial revolution is coming!
