For my grandma’s birthday, my aunt gave her the first season of the pbs show, Poldark. The story takes place in Cornwall, England, after the Revolutionary War. And it’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen! My aunt and I spent a week watching seven of the eight episodes with my grandma, and my aunts already seen it before. She said it got better the second time she watched it. The show is done by Masterpiece Theatre, so the scenery is beautiful and the main character is shown riding a horse along the countryside every other scene.
Ross Poldark is the main character and the story follows his return home from America to find his father dead, his girlfriend stolen by his cousin, and his world not at all like he left it.
I, for one, greatly appreciate historical fiction. I know it’s not for everyone, but the second season comes out next month; I’m so excited!!
