Just finished Winston's last non-Poldark novel which I could hardly put down as not only was it in his usual very absorbing style but in places even reminiscent of the early Poldark books themselves. Won't reveal the plot or story other than I found some intriguing parallels between Bram, Emma and Tamsin and Ross, Demelza and Elizabeth in that order. Perhaps what might have been ? 


Other than that it's set in Cornwall at the beginning of the 19th Century but have to admit that when Winston writes in the first person as a woman it is very convincing indeed, though on second thoughts perhaps I'll leave that to the ladies to decide best ! 


Either way recommended reading

31. The Ugly Sister - 1998

Emma Spry is the ugly duckling of the family, one side of her face marred during birth. She receives little affection, her father dead before she was born, and her mother preoccupied with her other daughter. Only Canon Robartes can teach Emma the true meaning of love....
