Winston Graham könyvei a rukkolán


Winston Graham - A ​tett után
Morris ​Scott sikeres, fiatal drámaíró. Karrierjét nem kis részben felesége, Harriet szervező-készségének, kitartó támogatásának és pénzének köszönheti. Csakhogy Harriet néhány évvel idősebb nála, sokat betegeskedik, néha leissza magát,és ilyenkor elviselhetetlenül házsártos. Legújabb darabja párizsi bemutatójának előkészítése során Morris megismerkedik egy szép, fiatal, intelligens lánnyal, Alexandrával. Mivel mindketten becsületesebbek annál, hogy a klasszikus szerelmi háromszög kielégítse őket, Morris úgy dönt, elválik a feleségétől. Harriet azonban kínos jelenetet rendez a premier utáni fogadáson, s a veszekedést szállodai szobájukban is folytani akarja. Morris egy váratlan és megmagyarázhatatlan ösztönnek engedve lelöki a balkonról. Ezzel elkezdődik a fiatal férfi kálváriája. Számtalan kérdésre kell, vagy kellene válaszolnia önmagának. Bűnös-e, és ha igen, hogyan bűnhődjék? Honnan várhat megbocsátást? A világi hatóság azaz a rendőrségre bízza-e a dolgot? Nyújthat-e vigaszt a buddhista szerzetes vagy a keresztény pap? Feledtetheti-e a történteket, ha beáll körorvos apja mellé, és a betegeket látogatja. Nem elég-e bűnhődésnek hogy felesége hajdani szerelme valóságos lelki terrornak veti alá? Winston Graham a népszerű angol író könyve nem csupán bűnügyi történet - megindító regény az életről, az élet értékéről, a bűntudatról, és az emberi felelőségről

Winston Graham - The ​Miller's Dance
Cornwall, ​1812-1813 At Nampara, the Poldark family finds the new year brings involvement in more than one unexpected venture. For Ross and Demelza there is some surprising - and worrying - news. And Clowance, newly returned from her London triumphs, finds that her entanglement with Stephen Carrington brings not only happiness but heartache. As the armies battle in Spain, and the political situation at home becomes daily more obscure, the Poldark and Warleggan families find themselves thrust into a turbulent new era as complex and changing as the patterns of the miller's dance . . .

Winston Graham - Poldark's ​Cornwall
A ​lavishly illustrated companion to Winston Graham's beloved Poldark novels, reissued as the new BBC series based on the novels is first broadcast. Graham's saga of Cornish life in the eighteenth century has enthralled readers throughout the world for seventy years and the wild landscapes that inspired the novels have - even today - remained relatively unchanged. Cornwall then was a perilous world of pirates and shipwrecks: of rugged coast and mysterious smugglers' coves, of windswept moors and picturesque villages such as Boscastle and Port Quin, and of beaches, tin mines and churches. With an introduction by Winston Graham's son, Andrew, and illustrated with stunning photographs, Poldark's Cornwall is a glorious evocation of the land of beauty, excitement, romance and imagination that Graham loved so well.
