Thank you for the very warm welcome. I too prefer the books to the film adaptation, although I will forever be grateful for the original Poldark series, as it introduced me to Winston Graham's writing.

Welcome Tracey! It seems that you have already brought something new to the forum - so far none of us were aware that WG was considering the name Valentine for his next book - interesting! I hope you enjoy it here and look forward to some lively discussions with you!

Hello and a very warm welcome, Tracey351, we're very happy that you've joined us.  What an interesting tale about WG intending to call his final book, Valentine.

It's an extremely exciting time for the WG and Poldark enthusiasts, with the new adaptation about to be born and the promise of WG's books becoming popular and current once again.  How WG would have loved to have been around to see it all materialising!

I haven't read Marnie, but I have heard that it's an extremely good read and I would like to see the film.  I hope you will thoroughly enjoy being part of the forum and look forward to discussing many topics with you.

My passion is for the books first and foremost, but I really enjoyed the original series and am looking forward with great anticipation to the new adaptation.

Welcome to the forum Tracey351.

Very interesting that WG was thinking of naming his last book Valentine which I hadn't known before. I also enjoyed Marnie the book too wasn't it set on the south coast somewhere, also there's a thread on it at the bottom of the forum. There's also loads of other topics to choose from so dive in...

Btw which do you prefer the most the Poldark books or the film ?  Myself the books by miles...wink

Hello,

I started reading Winston Graham after the original Poldark television production aired in the UK. I began with the Poldark series and then moved on to his other works. In 2000, after reading the Poldark series again, I wrote to Winston Graham asking him if he still thought about the characters. I didn't know at the time that a final book was planned, and after a long delay, he sent me a very nice letter telling me about this book, which at that time he thought would be called Valentine. Twenty one years after the Poldark series was first shown, my daughter was given the middle name, Verity! Of Winston Graham's other works, I have a particular liking for Marnie, because the book is set around the area where I now live, so I often find myself thinking about it when I am out and about.

Looking forward to some interesting discussions in the forum. Thank you for accepting my request to join.
