Description

The Loving Cup is the tenth in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.

Cornwall, 1813. A silver cup lies half forgotten in a dank 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.

In the closing years of the wars against Napoleon, for Jeremy and Clowance, and for arrogant, cynical Valentine Warleggan, these are troubled and momentous times....

This series is my absolute favorite

Any additional comments?

Has anyone else yelled at Clowance, Ross and Demelza about Stephen Carrington? I just can't grasp the concept of Ross and Demelza, who are both blessed with a sharp insight to peoples' characters, allowing Clowance to become embroiled with Stephen so easily. If I had been Ross I would have sent someone up to Bristol to find out what they could about him. Demelza has a sixth sense about people but she never used her very sage wisdom to warn Clowance of the type of man she was dealing with which I found odd. See?? This is how engrossed you will get with these novels! Oliver J Hembrough needs to do more narration work. He is phenomenal.

The narrator is incredible, so many voices! The story is riveting and so well written.

There are not enough of these Poldark books. Listening to them is utterly enjoyable! Oliver Hembrough is a master!

Made Me Laugh

There were parts of this episode of the Poldark saga that made me laugh. After reading so many books in this series, the characters feel like old friends. Graham has created a cast with a realness that is only added to with Oliver J. Hembrough’s narration. The Loving Cup very much felt like a sequel-prequel, not standing as a good read on its own. I’ve felt for a long time that Winston Graham waxed on way too long about the specifics of how a mine works. Even more tedious was his lengthy passages relating history and politics.
So if you have read the earlier books in the series, you will enjoy this one as well. If you are like me you will skip over bits that seem more like a history lesson than anything else. One gets strong indications from the Loving Cup as to how this series will conclude.

Good storyline but not great.

Enjoyed the book, as it’s part of the series, but it wasn’t that exciting or riveting a storyline. Has a tendency to drag gone with additional storylines that ad nothing to the Ross and Demelza story.

Fabulous Narration!

Where does The Loving Cup: A Novel of Cornwall 1813-1815 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top. Oliver Hembrough has done a spellbinding performance consistently throughout all of his recorded Poldark books in the series - I own each one!

Who was your favorite character and why?

That is a challenge...so many characters, so many books! I think Demelza and Verity are 2 at the top for the goodness and kindness of their characters, which offset so many of the cruel life realities of 18th/early 19th Century life. Of course Ross as the main protagonist is at the top as well as he was the main crusader and Robin Hood. George Warleggan has met his match...and his superior!

Which character – as performed by Oliver J. Hembrough – was your favorite?

I can't pick - they were all so perfectly done!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both

Any additional comments?

Like any great book, when you come to the end you feel as if you are parting with a good friend. So I will just have to start back at the beginning and listen read all of them again.

Can’t wait for the next book.

I’m never bored or restless listening to these books. They keep me
Engaged and waiting to see what will happen next. Absolutely love the family connection with the Poldarks and their children. I will be sad when I’m done with this series. Best ever
