Now I understand why the Masterpiece Theater series ended when it did. Book 8 – this one – takes a huge jump into the future. Jeremy is in this early 20s, Clowance her late teens. That would have been something to pull off in a TV show, because they’d have had to age Ross and Demelza by 20 years.
But it’s fun to read on and see what the ‘kids’ are up to. Geoffrey Charles makes an appearance as well. The country is changing although still at war with France. There is a new power in government. New innovations are being explored. And yet, some things stay comfortingly the same.
Looking forward to Book 9, but I think a little break to catch up on some other reading first.
