I am obviously new to the society and appreciate the opportunity to discuss Poldark with the group. Here is what I wrote when I signed on:

I am 73 and been happily married to the same women for 51 years. I am a romantic and found Winston Grahams Poldark compelling. After seeing the two seasons on PBS, I bought and read all 12 books. I simple wanted to find out what happened next, but became completely captivated by the depth of Grahams writing. I was particularly moved by Ross and Demelzas story and how he gives us clues to their relationship scattered throughout all 12 books. It is remarkable how he weaves the story in a seamless continuum, especially since he took over half a century to write the story. For me the scattered reflections, and insights are pieces of a great puzzle that one cannot really understand until all the pieces fall into place. After more thought then I care to admit, I think I finally understand their story in a way that escaped me upon first reading. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to share my thoughts with others similar engaged; to test what I think I have discovered and see it runs true for others.

 The story I want to explore is that of Demelza, Hugh and Ross. A lot has been written about Demelza infidelity fully exposed in TFS, but I dont think you can really understand it until you see the painful reconciliation in the TAT; so I will take to Demelza and Hugh forum and try to explain how I have come to see it, and how I think the most heartbreaking figures in the whole is affair is Demelza.
