Cornwall 1815. Demelza sees a horseman riding down the valley and senses disruption to the domestic contentment she has fought so hard to achieve. For Ross has little option but to accept the summons - and travel to Paris with his family, as an 'observer' of the French armed forces. Parisian life begins well with an exhilarating round of balls and parties.
Cornwall 1813. A silver cup lies half-forgotten in a dark cave, amongst a pile of stolen goods. Yet the tiny vessel and its inscription 'Amor gignit amorem' haunts the lives of the still-feuding Poldark and Warleggan families, as Ross, Demelza and the ambitious and powerful Sir George Warleggan watch their children make the decisions that will shape their destinies.
Poldark, the drama that has become a cultural phenomenon, continues for a second season on the stunning beaches of Cornwall. It s 1790 and there is riot and revolution in the air. Ross Poldark, the character redefined by the smoldering Aidan Turner, must fight for his freedom when George Warleggan tries to have him hanged as a revolutionary. While Francis and Elizabeth watch on in horror, can Demelza save Ross from himself?
When Ross Poldark plunges into a highly speculative mining venture, he risks not only his family's financial security but also his already-turbulent marriage. When his old flame Elizabeth Warleggan re-enters his life, Ross is tested like never before. But soon, his wife Demelza retaliates, becoming dangerously involved with a handsome Scottish cavalry officer of her own.
