I thought it was a poignant scene at the end of the last book when Bella was coming home in a stage coach with her parents, after a performance she had done, and the minute they passed over the line into Cornwall, she asked to step out of the coach and pick up a handfull of dirt to smell it.  To me this symbolised that no matter how famous she might become in the future, she would never forget her humble roots.

Ah, Bella, i wonder what you will think of it! I always thought the saga had ended after The Loving CUp because it seemed to me that all ends were tied up, both children married and all safe so i was surprised when The Twisted Sword appeared. I was then even more surprised when Bella appeared and have to say that my heart sank a little as i dreaded WG might have included the demise of either Ross or Demelza.

I await to hear your opinion of this final book.

Evening Everyone

Sixteen months ago I discovered that Winston Graham had written Bella in 2002.  Being such a huge Poldark fan, I couldn't believe that I had not known.....believing that The Twisted Sword was the end.  In 2002 I was raising my children, and had no knowledge of the internet and I think this is why I did not hear about Bella Poldark.  It was also sixteen months ago that I discovered this forum. I decided not to jump straight into Bella (which I bought in Hardback from e-bay for £1) but to re-read the novels from Book One, seeing as it had been a while. It has been difficult not to flick through Bella Poldark, nor read snippets about it on here. Clearly I am a slow reader, cos it has taken me a year and a half to read the 11 novels.

Last night, I finally picked up my Bella Poldark. As the candles flickered I began Chapter One.....I cannot tell 'ye all how excited I be ..........

Bella

 Yes, but Demelza actually had red hair, it's just that on TV, rather like Jessica Rabbit, she was just drawn that way.

As for little Jackie, never heard of her before, don't do "talent" shows, but when she first starts to sing you can only sit there in utter disbelief at such an amazing and mature voice from such a young girl. Stunning. I scrolled through to several other clips and was completely blown away. I just hope that her parents can protect both her and her voice from too much over exposure, and hopefully she matures rather more like Kathryn Jenkins than Charlotte Church.

And yes, as a young and precocious Bella, she'd be ideal.

I saw Jackie for the first time on Britain's Got Talent last week. I initially refused to believe that such a young girl could have such a mature voice and perform so gracefully. I agree Namps, she is incredibly articulate, and understated for her capability and talent.

Well it's been quite an interesting evening so far. I've downloaded Internet Explorer 8 yet still no sign of a green bar anywhere, on top of which I still hadn't heard her voice on Firefox or anything else. So for these occasions I keep Millenium which is still working fine including sound !

Agreed what a fantastic mature voice, hard to believe. Very similar to the English woman's on the same type of show last year I thought....amazing !

Hi Ross, yes I have sound and vision, wonderful! Thanks.  Thought this was what I did originally but the video appeared in the post prior to submitting post and then disappeared once posted.  Funny strange, but will have another go.  What do you think of her voice?

Hi NG,

Difficult one still as there's no sound yet, but once you've clicked on Share in YouTube, look below the blue code that appears and you'll see embed. Then enter the whole code into the tool bar in the usual way.

Are you getting any sound ?

Hey Bells, can't for the life of me manage to embed a video here anymore, the option has disappeared from the toolbar above.  Try copying and pasting this link below, hope it works.

Has anyone seen Jackie Evancho, aged 11 years, perform?  Now she is exactly how I imagine Bella to have been, minus the American accent.  What a big amazing voice for such a small, beautiful and incredibly articulate and assertive 11 year old girl.  She must be the first choice for a young girl to play the part of our Bella.
