The second novel in the Poldark series, Demelza continues the saga set in Cornwall.

Demelza Carne, the impoverished miner's daughter whom Ross Poldark rescued from a fairground brawl, is now his wife. But the events of these turbulent years test their marriage and their love. All the while, Demelza's efforts to adapt to the ways of the gentry -- and her husband -- place her in hilarious and embarrassing situations. The birth of her first child brings a joy she never experienced before.

PBS debuted season one of Poldark in 2015. Season two returns in Fall 2016.
