**Spoilerish** Storyline Basics Follow:
Demelza is delivered of her first baby - a little girl named Julia. In addition to Ross and Demelza's burgeoning relationship, Ross continues in his efforts to make a living for his family while trying to help the lower class families by employing them, befriending them and occasionally rescuing them from their troubles.
Although Demelza feels very out of place in the upper class world she's now a part of, she finds she is drawn to the activities of that world. Never wanting to shame Ross, she decides that she will have two christening parties for Julia. One will include their tenants and her horrible father and his wife. The other will include their friends among the gentry and hopefully, never the twain shall mix. Except that her father crashes the party for the gentry. To Demelza's credit - she doesn't feel that she's above the lower class folks, she simply doesn't want to embarrass Ross or make people feel uncomfortable.
Into this mix, a new character is introduced - Dwight Enys – a physician who’s everything a good doctor should be - caring about his patients more than the money he earns and willing to do whatever he can to help people of all classes. Over the course of this series, Dwight will become a great friend of the Poldarks but in this story, he's doomed to make a terrible decision - the results of which will follow him the rest of his life.
Demelza decides to play cupid in an effort to get Verity and Captain Blamey together without realizing the far reaching consequences her ultimate success will have on Ross and his business dealings and unfortunately their own relationship. Demelza's actions also serve to divide the two Poldark families when Francis realizes what she's done.
When Ross and Delmeza attend a large social gathering, Demelza learns that men are drawn to her as bees are to honey. However, instead of sticking by Demelza and providing some support, Ross is currently enraged over what he sees as an injustice toward a friend of the lower class which leads to him wagering heavily in a card game against one of the Warleggans. In part because it involved serious gaming, I found it to be one of the most interesting parts in the book.
The book ends on a tragic note for Ross and Demelza.
