Hi everyone, here are our suggested daily recommended titles in print and digital formats.
Our Digital Catalog suggested title for today is the digital title Jeremy Poldark – this is the third book in Winston Graham Poldark series and it picks up where the new Poldark TV series left off last year with Ross in quite a bit of trouble! You can read the book and see how closely season 2 of the series, which makes is debut on PBS this Sunday, September 25, follows the book!
Here is a description of the plot of the book!
(Spoiler Alert! If you don’t want to know what happens in season 2 of the series — don’t read any further!)
Jeremy Poldark by Winston Graham:
Ross Poldark faces the darkest hour of his life in this third novel of the Poldark series. Reeling from the tragic death of a loved one, Captain Poldark vents his grief by inciting impoverished locals to salvage the contents of a ship run aground in a storm-an act for which British law proscribes death by hanging. Ross is brought to trial for his involvement, and despite their stormy marriage, Demelza tries to rally support for her husband, to save him and their family.
But there are enemies in plenty who would be happy to see Ross convicted, not the least of which is George Warleggan, the powerful banker whose personal rivalry with Ross grows ever more intense and threatens to destroy the Poldarks.
And into this setting, Jeremy Poldark, Ross and Demelza’s first son, is born…
The Poldark series is the masterwork of Winston Graham’s life work, evoking the period and people like only he can and creating a work of rich and poor, loss and love, that you will not soon forget.

And our Print Book Suggested Read for today isn’t actually a book at all!
Instead of a book, I’m going to suggest the first season of a French language TV series that we’re getting great feedback about – it is titled simply A French Village and open in 1940.
Here’s a synopsis of the plot:
A French Village (Season 1):
The blockbuster French drama, chronicles the impact of World War II on a small village in central France. The German occupation changes the life of the village of Villeneuve forever, and as its residents come under the pressures of war, they make choices that are inspiring and heartbreaking. In this gripping drama, ordinary citizens become patriots, traitors, Nazi employees or activists.
